Anatomy of a Trend 2017
avoiding trends for trends sake
It's very tempting to do what's trendy—50 million Elvis fans can't be wrong, as my dad likes to say. But in Learning and Development, every situation is different, so not every trend will be relevant to you. This is where we come in.
This year, we've taken the 5 most popular training trends that we've encountered to illustrate why each is more than just a trend. Moreover, we share how we used each trend effectively with our clients to turn it into a strategic initiative.
Finally, we discuss a 6th trend, our marketing-based approach to training--treating your learners like customers to best identify their needs, habits and attitudes--and then how to launch newly created programs across your organization.
- Which trends are strategic and why
- Use cases for turning a trend into a strategy
