The key to meeting these challenges is strategic alignment with the business plan and identifying critical skills that are most likely to support that plan. Once the skills are clear, the appropriate training can be developed and deployed. This webcast will give you an overview of a skills-based approach to learning content development for business. You will learn:

  • the facets of skill-based learning, including its key benefits and best practices, along with some examples
  • how to implement the approach using effective modules, courses, learning programs, and certifications.
