Using case study examples from the thought leader panel, we will explore how growing companies approach their expanding, global training needs. Understanding challenges with global learning strategy is key for effective learning that will resonate positively on the engagement and perception of the learner about the company. Learners today are faced with company changes and acquisitions that create more virtual environments and global work teams. These virtual work environments and culturally blended teams are shaping the design and delivery of learning. Participants will learn tips for planning internal and external training and practical suggestions for planning learning strategies.
