8:05 AM - 8:45 AM Building an Enterprise Learning Organization to Drive Performance

Angela Justice, Chief Learning Officer , Biogen
In 2015, Training at Biogen was highly decentralized and broadly distributed across functions and geographies. Lack of governance, accountability, and alignment led to high spend but questionable value. Over the course of 2016, we transformed our structure and approach and built a platform from which to exert significant organizational impact. Today, business alignment, agility, and performance improvement are at the forefront of our Learning strategy and the focus is shifting from “training” to continuous learning. In this session, you’ll learn how to:
  • Maximize learning as a strategic lever for competitive advantage
  • Receive tips for getting (and keeping) executive sponsorship
  • Learn how to break down functional learning silos
  • Shift from “training” to continuous learning

A: Learning’s Role in Overall Talent Management - You Can’t Separate The Two!
To thrive in a fast-paced, complex and ever-changing business environment, coupled with talent shortages on the rise, organizations need to create learners who will grow and innovate with the company’s needs. The continuously changing nature and diversity of skills needed requires that organizations empower their workforce with knowledge, speed and flexibility. During this interactive session, we will discuss how CLOs must change how they play a role during the talent management lifecycle, evaluate what talent will look like in the future, and the necessary skills to meet organizational needs, the powerful role of talent analytics and discuss the right blend of strategy and execution that connects people, process and technology to transform at scale. Attendees will share leading practices on how they are immersing themselves in the various informal ways learning happens within an organization and across generations.
Facilitator: Miya Maysent, Vice President, Talent Development & Diversity, JCPenney
B: Future Directions for Performance Management
During this interactive roundtable, attendees will discuss why we need a performance management process and how it should be executed in 2018 to meet those needs. The following issues are likely to be raised; ratings vs. no ratings, how to pay for performance/compensation in a no ratings environment, managerial capabilities needed, the role of HR; change management issues, and linking performance management to business results. A key question will revolve around what’s next on the horizon to replace the often cumbersome and bureaucratic process burdening many organizations today.
Facilitator: Henry Artalejo, Vice President Talent Management, Ingredion

C: Creating and Engaging Culture That Millennials Thrive IN
Facilitator: Damian Hanft, Senior Director, Learning, Arby's Restaurant Group
