End of BarCamp

Metro Group will kick off the tracks by sharing their experience and examples of best practice:

  • Track 1: Managing global learning in decentralised organisations

Depending on the industry and on respective forces for global integration and for local adaptation, we see various ways how learning in multinational companies can be organised. In this track, we will look at the role of the central learning team in intrinsically decentralised organisations and explore how to overcome the centralised-decentralised paradox in creating value as a central team.

Kick-off by Christian Rippl, Director House of Learning, METRO AG.

  • Track 2: Measuring learning outcomes, not activities

Most learning functions report primarily on the volume of their activities despite the long-standing call for better learning analytics focusing on impact and value creation. In this track, we will discuss how to better measure outcomes, e.g. by defining learning objectives and setting how to measure them early in the design process and by using new tools and approaches.

Kick-off by Zlatka Radeva, Head of Finance and HR Academies, House of Learning, METRO AG

  • Track 3: Boost employee ownership of learning & development

Integrating work and learning is a challenge for learning organisations. In addition to overcoming the technical hurdles to make learning resources available in the moment of need, another dimension will be highlighted: how to create eagerness and intrinsic motivation to engage in lifelong and ‘always on’, a growth mindset, understanding knowledge, skills and competencies as means of personal branding and employability, to shine in front of the customer and outperform competition. Ultimately to share own expertise via user-generated platforms or other means.

Kick-off by Gonzalo Ramon Relazon, Head of Operations Academy, House of Learning, METRO AG
