Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Tim Donohue, Vice President, E-Learning Solutions, IHRDC; David Wentworth, Principal Analyst, Learning and Development, Brandon Hall Group; and Michael Rochelle, Chief Strategy Officer, Brandon Hall Group

There’s a high cost to the status quo. Formal learning is not meeting the demands of the modern learner, and legacy learning management system tools aren’t enough. What learners want today is the ability to quickly find content when and where they need it.

In part 2 of our four-part series, David Wentworth will moderate the conversation between Michael Rochelle and Tim Donahue as they cover:

  • why learner satisfaction scores are low and the cost of content development is high
  • why organizations struggle to deliver relevant content
  • practical solutions to close skills gaps, including IHRDC’s real-world experiences in a highly regulated industry.
