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:

The COVID-19 Pandemic had a profound impact on organizations all over the globe. Organizations that require certification, compliance, and demonstration of competency through participation in structured, often intensive hands-on training programs, were uniquely impacted.

While many organizations adapted to do what they could, the ability for some organizations to pivot from hands-on learning activities proved difficult and at times impossible. As we emerge from the pandemic and work to embrace the ‘new normal’, many of these organizations work to return to the way it was.

During the webinar we discuss the impacts of COVID on hands-on compliance and certification-based training programs. We explore the challenges and opportunities, as well as options and strategies to not only recover, but prepare for another disruption. Discussion topics include:

  • How was your compliance/certification-based program impacted by COVID?
  • What accommodations did you need to make to maintain your programs?
  • Were their business impacts related to the accommodations?
  • Are their limitations in Technology that need to be addressed to make it more viable?
  • What strategies are being explored to address the long-term need?

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.

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.
