Caveo Learning President Gary Schafer is slated to speak at the 2017 Learning Solutions Conference & Expo, hosted by The eLearning Guild in conjunction with Learning Solutions Magazine. The conference will be held March 22–24 in Orlando.
Schafer's presentation is titled, "Aligning Your Learning Strategy for Maximum Impact," and will present learning leaders with practical tips on crafting key performance indicators for the learning function that tie directly to enterprise business objectives. Schafer, a certified consultant in Talent Development Reporting principles (TDRp) through the Center for Talent Reporting, will help participants effectively prove and communicate the business value of learning to their stakeholders.
In order to transform the learning organization into a center of excellence, learning leaders must consistently and deliberately deliver measurable business value. But in most organizations, learning is an afterthought to the strategic process, relegated to a reactive, execution-only role.
In this session, you will learn how to align learning and development strategy with the objectives of the business to generate desired performance results. You will acquire a proven road map for alignment, enhancing your team’s ability to proactively affect optimal business impact. You’ll learn about the key performance indicators that directly align with specific business objectives and departmental goals. Most importantly, you will examine how to effectively prove and communicate the business value of learning to other departmental areas, in relevant and comprehensible terms that resonate with business leaders.
The session is scheduled for Wednesday, March 22, at 1 p.m. Eastern time.
Schafer has more than 15 years' experience leading global implementation teams focused on identifying and capturing strategic business opportunities. Formerly a consultant with McKinsey & Company, he has worked closely with senior executives to develop, implement, and measure performance-based strategies. Schafer earned an MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and a bachelor's in business administration from North Central College.
