Posted by Caveo Learning on December 6, 2016

Why a One-Page Learning Plan? Think of it as the executive summary of the entire learning organization.

The beauty of the One-Page Learning Plan is its ability to succinctly pull together several components of effective learning strategy into a single document: business alignment, performance improvement, the Maturity Model, and a learning metrics and measurement overview. The One-Page Plan incorporates all of those into a plan that can be easily shared with business stakeholders.
