Building a performance positive culture


This presentation was delivered at the Learning Technologies Conference in 2007 jointly with Liz Beswick from British Energy.

As learning professionals, one of the big issues you will always face is the ability to get your training initiatives truly embedded in your organisation. 

Just think for a moment; do your initiatives really stick, or are they more like a passing focus which people pay lip service to until something more important comes along?  And if your initiatives are not sticking, then just imagine how powerful they could be if they did!

Setting your departmental strategy E-mail

Setting your departmental strategyThis presentation was one of two delivered at the Learning Technologies conference in 2004.

You may be familiar with the reactive and unorganised training department which deliver courses to an often intolerant customer organisation, and is never quite clear exactly what needs to be delivered, when and to whom.  It is usually the last to be invited to project planning meetings, and often far too late to influence either the timing of training plans or the allocated budget.  It is not asked to play a part in strategic thinking, and anyway it would not have the time to.  In fact, it is just too busy rushing to get that last bit of course development finished.
