Event Details

“In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety.” Abraham Maslow

The pandemic has forced organisations around the world to question, reimagine and pivot many of their core practices. Accelerated learning, greater experimentation and forced innovation have enabled us to adapt and continue to offer opportunities for learning and development despite this disruption. In this context of heightened ambiguity and uncertainty, the ability to be agile has become more relevant than ever before.

Over the past 18 months, EFMD, in partnership with London Business School, has led an Agile Learning Special Interest Group (SIG) to explore how learning embraces agile fundamentals. Together with the SIG’s members, learning professionals from AB InBev, AIA, Bank Indonesia, EDF, Erste Bank Group, LafargeHolcim, NLMK, Repsol, Sberbank, Siemens, Steelcase and SwissRe, the group explored and debated questions such as: what skills and capabilities will become more important post-pandemic? How will we develop them differently? How will learning frameworks and operating models adapt to maintain an agile approach?

To mark the end of our journey, we are delighted to invite you to participate in the culmination of our exploration, experimentation, research and findings at a half day virtual Corporate Advisory Seminar (CAS).

The CAS will offer an overview of London Business School’s journey of agility through the Covid pandemic as well as interactive sessions on the four areas of focus of the Agile Learning SIG:

 

  • How can we anticipate and develop at scale new skills and capabilities 
  • How to foster a culture of learning and curiosity
  • How to apply agile methods in L&D
  • Which new L&D operating models will emerge

There will also be a guest panel discussion moderated by Martin Moehrle, Director of EFMD, with industry and academic experts including Kathleen O’Connor, Clinical Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Director of Executive Education at London Business School and Nico Barea-Vilas, Global Talent & Organisation HR VP of Unilever.

Target group: This workshop is by invitation only and is open to corporate learning and development practitioners from member companies and invited guests.
