by Tamar Elkeles, Jack J. Phillips

New business realities and customer demands, coupled with new technologies in a changing competitive landscape are causing corporate learning departments to rethink their value, role, and impact in the organization. In a constantly changing business landscape with limited resources and tight budgets, learning must be viewed as essential to a successful achievement of business goals. The individual driving this function, the Chief Learning Officer (CLO), is in a unique position to add significant value to the organization. The role of the CLO is to drive value, focusing on issues such as business alignment, managing resources, innovation, customer service and ROI. The challenge is to show value to the organization in terms that business leaders and financial analysts can understand and appreciate. Written from the perspective of the CLO, this book discusses nine important value-adding strategies, making up this critical role of the CLO of the future. At least twenty high profile CLOs provide their strategies on each of these issues.
