The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a profound impact on organizations all over the globe. The training function has not been immune to these changes.
The level of disruption brought about by the pandemic has presented both challenges and opportunities, while completely changing the landscape of training. During the webinar we discuss the impact of the pandemic and the effects it will have on training post-COVID-19. Discussion topics include:
How have organizations adapted technology to meet the needs that created in the workplace?
How has COVID-19 impacted training programs?
What changes have been put in place that will stay in training programs Post-COVID-19?
What have been the biggest surprises regarding COVID and training programs?
What have been the budget concerns?
For many organizations, the learning ecosystem extends far beyond the four walls of the company. Companies continue to find it necessary or beneficial to deliver training to external audiences such as customers, channel partners, distributors, resellers and franchisees.
The gig economy also makes it critical to provide training and development opportunities for non-employees. More than half of companies (56%) say they deliver training to contract or contingent workers.
Discover how an extended learning strategy that empowers your external audiences with knowledge and information can deliver tangible, business-changing results and contribute to achieving your organization’s key strategic goals.
We discuss market demands and trends for leveraging Extended Enterprise Learning, including:
Ways to leverage extended learning to increase market awareness and product adoption
Challenges presented by extended enterprise environments
The role technology plays
Examples of organizations delivering successful extended enterprise programs.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a profound impact on organizations all over the globe. The training function has not been immune to these changes. The level of disruption brought about by the pandemic has presented both challenges and opportunities, while completely changing the landscape of training.
Latitude teamed up with Brandon Hall to discover how Covid-19 has impacted training in the workplace. We gathered information from training managers on how their organization has been impacted, and how they pivoted, in order for you to evaluate and deliver tangible, business-changing training to your learning audiences during the pandemic and beyond.
Here are a few insights into the data collected:
30% of companies believe half or more of their workers will remain remote after the pandemic
10% of companies reported a per-learner budget increase, while 47% of companies reported a per-learner budget decrease
44% of organizations believe the use of digital learning will remain the same or perhaps increase as the pandemic eases
Extended enterprise learning can serve many needs for an organization. By training resellers, customers and potential customers on their products and services, companies can ensure they get the best, most up-to-date information. Salespeople tend to sell more of a product they know about than one with which they are unfamiliar. Customers rely less on help and support channels when they are well-informed.
In a collaborated effort, Latitude CG and Brandon Hall created an ebook to share a deeper look into extended enterprise learning. Here are a few insights into the data collected:
23% of organizations say they are able to generate revenue via extended enterprise learning
More than half of companies believe their efforts are either effective or highly effective, and just 5% say they don’t actually know
92% of program managers believe their programs are having a positive impact on their organizations. The debate on whether to train business partners is settled. The answer is YES.
Which Type of LMS is Right For My Organization?
Deciding which LMS is right for your organization can be a hefty task. With over 1000 LMS vendors to choose from it may be hard to figure out where to begin.
To help you get started and save time, we have developed a decision tree infographic that determines your best fit LMS by focusing on the type of training program you are administering.
The infographic guides you through questions about your current training and in the end matches you with your best fit LMS.
Current State of Extended Learning
A Deeper Look at Training Beyond the Four Walls
In a collaborated effort, Latitude CG and Brandon Hall took to the training community to get a pulse on the current state of the extended learning space.
We surveyed training managers from small, mid-size and large organizations on their learning audiences, allocated budgets, modalities for delivering training, learning objectives, training challenges, realized benefits and effectiveness of training.
This knowledge graphic summarizes our findings and helps get you started on preparing your extended enterprise training program, answering critical questions such as:
What challenges did your organization face to delivering extended enterprise learning?
How does extended learning help your business?
How effective do you consider your organization’s extended learning?
The Future of Training
When it comes to measuring training effectiveness, most organizations are measuring activity, not impact. Less than a third of organizations bring performance metrics into the equation. Despite most companies saying their efforts are effective, saying they want better reporting and analytics indicates that they are probably unable to measure impact.
Therein lies the great opportunity for extended enterprise learning; to evolve training programs to incorporate performance metrics that enable them to dramatically improve the training’s impact.
We created an extended enterprise training program roadmap that categorizes training programs into eight categories, in order of impact. See where your training program lands on the roadmap and what can be done to increase the impact of your training.
