The Case for Continuous Learning
Enablers and Mindsets
With Guest Speaker:
PayPal Chief Learning Officer
PayPal is an American company operating a worldwide online payments system that supports online money transfers and serves as an electronic alternative to traditional paper methods like checks and money orders. PayPal was spun off from eBay in 2015. PayPal Chairman and CEO, Dan Schulman, is striving to make PayPal a customer champion. He envisions a company that focuses on various segments of the market and solves real problems for customers.
So, in 2015, Schulman hired Derek Hann as Chief Learning Officer to help him create a customer-focused culture. We are privileged to hear directly from Derek how he and his team are doing this through the use of Continuous Learning.
According to a recent article written by Bersin by Deloitte, 1% of a typical workweek is all that employees have to focus on training and development. Continuous Learning provides the opportunity to learn 24/7, whenever an employee has the time. It is a cornerstone to the transformation taking place in many organizations.
Derek manages his team as a Product Organization (being customer-focused and reacting quickly), aligning closely to the business’s priorities, expanding on the needs addressed, and using learning technologies more effectively. Join this session to learn from Derek how he and his team utilize Continuous Learning to create:
- A Learning function that behaves as a Product Organization.
- Learning that attends to all learners’ needs.
- Learning technologies that are built to purpose and scale.
- Learning that focuses on enabling the business roadmap and priorities.
- Learning that produces products and services that earn the trust and confidence of the business leadership.
