Developing and Managing a Learning Organization

Why Attend

Advancements in technology, shifts in customer preferences, ambiguous economic conditions, and intensifying competition have become regular and powerful forces modern organizations need to tackle to stay relevant. Latest market research consistently highlights the need for organizations to invest in their learning capabilities to become more equipped  at confronting volatile environments and making the transitions between the different market shifts; this makes a learning organization a strategic imperative rather than a strategic choice. This course provides working knowledge on how to develop a learning organization and manage it once it has been established. It also identifies the critical components that will produce the most effective learning initiatives for existing business needs.
