We are barraged with a constant stream of new ideas for design and delivery of solutions that can improve learning, engagement, and performance. Finding methods to rapidly evaluate innovation, while maximizing the benefits and minimizing the risks, can mean the difference between success and failure.

How can you strategically innovate your training so that your learners develop new knowledge faster, become more deeply engaged, and have a greater impact? Emerging technologies are providing many new and different approaches for designing and delivering training ... but where to get started?

Today on the program, Monica and David discuss how to strategically innovate your training through the intentional integration of emerging technologies.

  • How can one make sure they are on the success side of innovation?
  • What does that process look like?
  • What are the latest innovations?
  • What are the benefits of partnerships and how does a partnership come about?
  • How can one maintain an appropriate level of risk with innovations?

Join us at the Innovations in Training Conference in Orlando, Florida on November 30, December 1 and 2:
