Their goal is to examine ways in which new business realities, technology advances and the breaking down of traditional borders and boundaries are altering the delivery of learning and development.
“It’s not just the big global companies that are feeling the effects of today’s new world of work and the changes it’s bringing to the learning function,” said Norm Kamikow, president and editor in chief of MediaTec Publishing Inc., which publishes Chief Learning Officer magazine. “Big or small, local or global, the reality of business today for any organization is a far cry from what it used to be. And for chief learning officers, the boundaries have shifted far beyond the company headquarters or the local market. Today, they are challenged to bring accessible development to a diverse and dispersed community full of customers, collaborators and co-workers, suppliers and stakeholders. That means creating a learning environment that feels like ‘home’ no matter where the actual learners may be and providing equal opportunities for everyone to grow and advance their skills.”
Kamikow and the magazine’s editors used the theme “Home on the Range: Learning for a Globalized Workforce” to craft the upcoming CLO Symposium program being held at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort & Spa. For three days, learning and development practitioners and industry thought leaders will participate in a high-level agenda featuring keynote addresses, panel discussions, workshops and interactive sessions designed to explore innovative learning and development strategies, techniques and technologies.
For two consecutive years, the CLO Symposium has been ranked the No. 1 leadership development event for learning executives by Leadership Excellence magazine. Attendees at the Spring 2013 Symposium can earn HR Certification Institute continuing education credits, as well as points toward re-certifying as Certified Performance Technologists.
