Turning Employees into Learning Champions

Committing human resources to an eLearning program is one of the more critical investments a company must make in order to be successful.

Identifying, assigning and empowering a core group of learning champions can help ensure the aggressive pursuit of excellence and value in terms of training. In this series we look at some strategies your company can employ to establish a core group of learning champions.


To help support the adoption of training at your company, it’s effective to have a core cadre of key staff members that fully understand the value of training and champion its use. Through needs analysis and planning, companies can identify and fill those key staff roles to create a self-sustaining support system for the corporate training program.

Your company may have an LMS administrator, but does it have a Core Learning Champion?

Even if your company has bought in to the values of a learning program, if the program isn’t properly staffed it will have difficulty getting off the ground.

Successful training programs are the result of hard work, strategy, and execution.

Are you Agile?

What is Agile?

The Agile Manifesto was born in 2001 with the goal of creating a better way for developing and coding computer software in a more fluid project management approach.

Fashion retail chain Zara has credited its success to an agile project management approach to its supply chain.

Agile has quickly emerged as the standard as it drives businesses and it’s people to work in smaller, non-hierarchical teams; there is no rigid plan or path to stick to, and it is accepted that the end product you are working towards can often look very different to what was initially planned if a better way of achieving the strategic purpose of the product is found.

In CIO’s article, titled “Why agile skills are more valuable than certifications,” it is clear that demand for mission-critical IT projects is increasing as the economy improves. Adopting the agile mindset is key for IT professionals to be able to keep pace with the IT project demands.

This shift has been evolving and the business trends continue to follow this need that the Agile Mindset brings.
