“Breaking Down Traditional Barriers to Learning” is putting the right information — and access to that information — into the hands of your workforce, right when they need it. Think of it as giving your employees quick references to the tools and business processes they use every day.

Time is of the essence, and typical classroom training and e-learning cost money and time, and the truth is that most people “learn by doing.” To do that, users need support that’s contextual, just-enough and ready when they are.

There are barriers to this concept, and this webinar aims to help you develop the appropriate strategies that break down the obstacles to move your organization beyond training to performance.

Discussion topics include:

  • Facts, figures and industry trends surrounding barriers.
  • Discussion, with live polls, on what you as an organization are experiencing.
  • Solution ideas and tactics for how to begin breaking down the barriers.
