5 steps to aligning L&D with business leadership

  1. Establish business leadership objectives

    L&D Initiatives need a problem to solve or metric to affect in order to be truly relevant. Work with business leaders in your organization to uncover their goals and identify areas for improvement, where your programs can impact their objectives.

  2. Identify desired employee behaviors / actions

    Pinpoint specific behaviors your employees need to exhibit in order to achieve success and impact the business objective. What do they need to do to sell more, deliver better customer service, or be safer in the workplace?

  3. Identify required employee knowledge

    Focus on the most important things your people need to know in order to take the right actions. Then, give employees easy access to additional information they may need from time to time at their fingertips.

  4. Engage the modern worker

    Build a learning ecosystem that engages your team. Make learning fun, continuous, bite-sized, mobile, social, and personalized. When a team is engaged in a healthy modern learning ecosystem, the desired results will happen!

  5. Measure success

    Let the results do the talking! Implement tools that allow you to measure everything from employee knowledge growth through to behaviors that impact business performance. That way you can demonstrate ROI to business leadership, and prove your programs made a real difference.
