Strategic Training Development

Friday, October 6, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Facilitator: Erika Dorsey

Training and instructional systems design (T&ISD) teams are constantly challenged to do more with less and often become order-taking centers stuck in a tactical loop. In time, chaos can be seen and felt by the T&ISD team as well as outside observers. As a result, very few organizational stakeholders understand the value that the team delivers for the organization.

According to LinkedIn’s 2017 Workplace Learning Report, business impact is the number one measure desired by CEOs. Therefore, there must be a burning imperative to find a fix. What is the solution? – A well thought-out operational design (infrastructure and processes) and long-term training and development strategy. It is key to delivering on an organization’s strategic business goals. During this session, we will collaboratively explore the impact that a solid operational model can have on your team and your organization.

Participants will learn:

  • How to develop and implement a T&ISD Team operational model
  • How to use an operational model to create infrastructure and processes
  • How to bring order to chaos by moving away from tactical order-taking to strategic program management
  • How an operational model can be used to communicate T&ISD Team’s value throughout the organization

Why do you want to attend the January Lunch & Learn SIG meeting?


Because…  You will learn principles that work from the best-selling book, Five Dysfunctions of a Team.

Because… A cohesive team will:

  • ·         Make better, faster decisions as people are aligned and on-board
  • ·         Leverage the skills, talents and opinions of all team members
  • ·         Ensure conflict becomes productive and healthy versus draining and damaging
  • ·         Focus on the results versus self-interest and politics
  • ·         Create a competitive advantage and sets your organization apart
  • ·         Eventually become “A Best Place to Work”


Join us for this interactive, engaging SIG where we will explore the behaviors that create a high performing team, give you practices to bring to your own organization and insight as to why this concept has been embraced and widely accepted around the world.
