Five Factors Transforming Training

With guest speaker, 

Brandon Carson,

The rapid pace of technological change has altered how business is conducted. In light of this, the modern learning organization must transform not only how it designs and delivers learning, but also how it evaluates and measures its success in supporting the workplace.

This session highlights the five emerging technologies that are disrupting the business of learning the most, and presents practical strategies for integrating these technologies into your learning approach:

1.      Workplace Automation

2.      The cloud

3.      Mobile

4.      Big Data and Analytics

5.      The Internet of Everything
