6:05 PM On Becoming A Chief Learning Officer: Positioning for the Future of Work

The notion of being a CLO has been canonized since the late 1990s. Invariably in many of the discussions in conferences and publications, much have been shared on programmatic brilliance of leadership programs, succession planning approaches or more sophisticated deployment of learning tools, or certain leadership drive to build a certain type of organization culture. Yet programmatic brilliance or sophistication in learning tool deployment is seldom a conversation amongst the most senior leaders of a company, and in particular, the CEO of the organization. What is encountered is one simple preeminent question: “For all the money spent, how do we know it matters to the success of the organization? This is the question that matters. Credible answers to this question ensure the CLO has a seat at the leadership planning table, and muddled answers only accelerate exit to the door!
•Learn how to engage senior leaders at the planning table so that they can drive the priority of training investments
•Measure and account for how much money and time are actually spent enterprise-wide in learning
•Engage at the business unit and functional level to make sure the Learning Function is doing the right things for everyone
•Highlight the role(s) that must be instituted in order to ensure Learning is closely aligned with the businesses
•Ensure that you can globally scale the learning services so that the learning experiences are high quality and cost effective
•Recognize the metrics that  must be put in place to monitor progress and learn how to measure results and impact 
•Discuss the benchmarks needed to ascertain effectiveness and efficiency
