LA CROSSE, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kaplan Leadership & Professional Development Segment Sales Director, Dana Palmblad, will speak on “Learning Matters: Supporting the Training Investment in Your Organization,” at the Fall 2019 Chief Learning Officer Symposium in Chicago on October 14, 2019.
“As learning professionals, we know the value of learning is as high as the value of any other key function in terms of the success of an organization,” said Palmblad. “But experience has also taught us the difficult process of defending budgets or receiving buy-in from senior leaders. The reality is that the learning function is still often seen by many as nice to have, but non-essential and the first to suffer cuts. But, the truth is, learning and development programs that are properly designed to align with corporate strategy and culture are foundational to corporate performance.”
Palmblad’s session will explore:
- How a system of learning governance could make a revolutionary difference in how learning is viewed by its stakeholders;
- How to connect your learning strategy directly to your organization’s business strategy;
- The agile learning function that can respond quickly to and anticipate the skill and knowledge challenges that the organization faces;
- How to create and manage a learning environment that produces better business performance.
Leveraging more than 30 years of professional expertise in sales and leadership development, Palmblad works closely with companies to align Kaplan’s extensive expertise and resources with their organizational objectives to deliver integrated technical and behavioral learning experiences that have an immediate and measurable impact, resulting in positive business outcomes and a profitable return on investment.
