If You Aren’t Investing in Learning, Don’t Expect to Win (At Least Not For Very Long)


Presenters: Rusty Lindquist, BambooHR; and Mike Martin, Litmos

Original program date: July 2017 (program no longer available)

Program length: 60 minutes

Sure, an organization can get off the ground with a good idea fueled by grit, sweat and money. But if you want to stay off the ground and even soar, then you better learn how to learn, because that’s the only thing that will keep you there.

Peter Drucker, the founder of modern management science, once said that "the rate at which an organization learns may well become the only sustainable source of competitive advantage". In a knowledge-based economy like we are in today, the organizations that can best systematize the transfer of knowledge are the organizations that will win.

In this program, Rusty Lindquist of BambooHR and Mike Martin of Litmos will arm you with a rock-solid business case for why your organization should invest in learning and why you should do it sooner, rather than later. You will also show you why (and how) HR should be center-stage in this effort. And finally, you'll get tips to help make sure you do it right.
