More Courses, Less Cost: How to Provide More Content on a Limited Budget

Tuesday, February 19, 2019 12:00pm - 1:00pm EST

Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Allen Partridge, Head of Evangelism, Digital Learning Solutions, Adobe

How is your 2019 training budget treating you? It’s early in the year, and many L&D managers and directors are figuring out how to best apply their budget to their annual goals. Many of us have limited funds, so we start asking ourselves questions like the following:

  • Should I develop this course or learning program in-house, or purchase existing content from a vendor?
  • What kinds of content are out there, and how do I select content that will best serve my learners?
  • How can I use course content catalogs to augment our existing curriculum?
  • How do I develop more custom content without investing more of my budget?
  • Can I save money by presenting some instructor-led classes in a virtual format?

In this session, Allen Partridge—head of Evangelism, Digital Learning Solutions at Adobe—will facilitate a discussion of these questions. You will have an opportunity to share your ideas and hear what fellow attendees are doing with their training programs. Allen will also share real-life examples and practical tips for prioritizing, planning, and budgeting for your organization’s L&D priorities.
