THE MODERN
LEARNING
MINDSET

This issue of Training Industry Magazine
focuses on the modern learning mindset.
Our marketplace is telling us that the
needs of the learner must be top of mind
when developing new programs and
strategies for skill development. This is
driving the emergence of new learnerfocused experience platforms that enable
both a more applied set of learning
opportunities as well as a holistic look
at how the learner wants to consume
performance
improvement
content,
regardless of its nature, form or structure.

Our company's annual trends report is also
included in this issue, where we reflect on
the ideas that have impacted our industry
over the past 12 months, and we look
ahead to the trends that will shape our
business moving forward. With so much
change occurring in the market today,
we are seeing a growing need to adapt
the training function to the complexity
of the business environment. We need to
prioritize the training needs of learning
professionals, so they can successfully
guide our organizations through change.

The way companies are defining L&D is
moving more toward the idea of a path
or a journey to improved, applicable
skills, rather than an event or course to
be consumed. This change is beginning
to put pressure on training organizations
to think well beyond their formal training
or recent experiences. It's pushing the
concept of a systems approach to learning
and perhaps changing the pathway
forward for the function forever.

So, entering 2019, we need to start
thinking about the following questions.
Do we have the skills we need to make the
next steps? Do we need to look to adjacent
functions for this new set of skills? Who is
going to lead the change on our teams?
How can we help them prepare for
success? I have always believed that the
training function has been underserved in
terms of its own development, could this
be the year that starts to change?

In this edition of the magazine, you will
find articles that focus on the upside
opportunity of rethinking how L&D
teams support learning, why becoming
a hyper-learning organization is the only
sustainable advantage, and how to move
beyond simple curation and focus on
building a multidisciplinary team.

As always, we would love to hear your
thoughts about the perspectives shared
in the magazine, and please feel free to
send any suggestions for future editions
of Training Industry Magazine.

THE TRAINING
FUNCTION HAS LONG
BEEN UNDERSERVED
IN TERMS OF ITS
OWN DEVELOPMENT,
COULD THIS BE THE
YEAR THAT STARTS
TO CHANGE?
