Delivering learning solutions in a manner that both engages the learner and produces desired outcomes; managing and responding to learner needs; ensuring that learning is made available in effective platforms and delivered in a timely and effective manner (ASTD, 2013).

  • 2x more apt to say their learning functions help meet organizational business goals
  • Share knowledge with colleagues at a rate 4x greater than that at employees at lower-performing firms

  • To choose the technology that best supports the instructional strategy
