10.00 am UK time
The uberization of workplace learning
Gerry Griffin, Director, Skill Pill

The consumer landscape is radically changing; how we book hotels, cabs and listen to music has altered beyond all recognition in the past ten years. Enterprise culture, at times, lags behind consumer culture. Now, however, we can now see ‘uberization’ – or emergence of a cloud philosophy – making itself felt within the workplace learning environment.

  • What role can learning and development adopt to leverage these new initiatives?
  • What specific types of tools and game-plan can best be delivered?
  • What early examples are we seeing of best practice?
  • Are there any pitfalls? If so, what are they?
  • Are there any generational biases or trends incited

12:00 noon UK time
Expanding the myth of ‘one best way’ – using playlists for personalisation and performance
Alastair Maclean, Head of Design and Development, Saffron & Toby Harris, Platform Project Manager, Saffron

Employees, driven by their expectations as consumers, now demand digital engagement from their organisations. But many organisations cripple learning and collaboration by designing their workspaces and digital platforms around Taylorist principles which no longer apply. In particular, they foster the destructive myth of ‘one best way’. This approach treats people as a passive mass to be monitored and controlled instead of an organisation’s greatest natural resource. No wonder it’s harder than ever to retain high performers! The session will look at how we can strategically deploy technology like learning playlists and reporting APIs to fix what is broken with our learning and performance infrastructure and create the insight which allows organisations to survive in uncertain times. The session will tackle:

  • Why we need to personalise absolutely everything and how playlists help us to do it
  • Reversing the trainer / trainee relationship: seeing the learner as the producer of organisational insight
  • The coming transition from SCORM completion to goal completion and what it means
  • The myths and realities of ‘gamification’ in the context of employee engagement
  • Examples of how a bespoke approach to content, platform and consultancy has delivered return on investmen
