About 15-20 years ago, companies changed the way they described what Learning and development does for the organisation. From the earlier notion of ‘training’, we renamed our services learning; from training department, many renamed it ‘corporate university or academy’.

This traditional approach was handed down to the learning professionals since the 1960’s and was useful in the 20th century. In the 21st century, however, companies and businesses find themselves in a much more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambigious business enviroment than before and have adapted or are rapidly busy doing so.

In his talk, Stefaan van Hooydonk, will share his experiences of how he took his learning groups along a journey towards creating the impact Learning and development deserves in the 21st century. He will talk about mental models of looking at 21st learning, new organisational approaches, new skills of both the CLO as well as the learning team, touch upon the changing landscape of technology beyond LMS learning groups need to address and will share practical innovation cases from the multiple learning organisations Stefaan helped transform.
