Webinar: The Challenges of Global L&D

Thursday, April 27, 2017 - 12:30 to 13:00
OU Events team

This webinar is run in partnership with the Campaign for Learning and is aimed at HR and learning and development (L&D) professionals.

Campaign for Learning logoAre you sitting in a global or corporate L&D function, or “locally” at a business unit? Do you feel that L&D is effectively meeting the local and global requirements of your organisation?

A recent report published by The Open University Business School, based on research findings from 200 senior L&D decision makers, found that:

  • 62% see global/international learning programmes as “the future”
  • 94% are planning to invest more in global learning programmes
  • Almost 60% believe there would be significant commercial impact if L&D teams collaborated across the world.

Within this context, Penny Asher, Director of Executive Education at The Open University, will share perspectives on the following:

  • What do we mean by “Global L&D” and is it relevant?
  • Discuss some of the challenges of Global L&D, as identified in the recent Open University report
  • Explore what the L&D response should be, and how best to deliver Global L&D.

Although the focus will be on Global L&D, many of the perspectives discussed will be relevant to all L&D professionals.
