The UK’s senior HR and learning and development professionals are gathering for two one-day workshops covering technology in leadership development and performance driven learning. Both workshops take place at the headquarters of The Work Foundation – Peter Rudge House, in Carlton House Terrace, London - on 28th and 29th November respectively

The events’ sponsors include IBM, Learning Light (LL), the non-profit centre of excellence which highlights and promotes best practice in the use of learning technologies in the workplace, and web-based talent management software producer, Plateau Systems.

Under the title ‘Leadership and Performance Futures 2006’, the events cover key leadership, performance and learning topics impacting employers today. The workshops’ sessions are being facilitated by leading industry practitioners and analysts including: Linda Holbeche, the Work Foundation’s director of the Campaign for Leadership; Karen Eden, of Oracle, and Andi Britt, of IBM Global Business Services.

A key component of Leadership & Performance Futures 2006 is its survey service, sponsored by LL.

“We believe an integrated approach to pre, during and post event analysis and evaluation is an important outcome of the excellent dialogue and best practice this event will generate,” said one of the event organisers, Debbie Carlton. “An independent organisation such as LL will provide advice, design and analysis services to ensure high quality, relevant and timely event survey services.”

According to LL’s CEO, Mark Pittaway: “LL enables buyers to make faster, more informed learning technology decisions, that directly support organisational change programmes, while ensuring that the investments made are fit for business need. It also enables suppliers to understand the changing market and develop products and services to meet demand.”

“Sensing, understanding, valuing and optimising patterns of interaction and value drivers in work practices represents a primary opportunity for transforming enterprise capabilities, generating sustainable growth, value and competitiveness,” explained Carlton who, as the founder of Dynamic Knowledge, works with organisations to define validated performance and learning objectives, develop assessment strategies, implement learning activities and thus improve the effectiveness of performance driven learning.

“The ‘performance driven learning’ workshop shows how organisations can unlock sustainable value from intangibles by fostering architectures of participation,” she added. “It is set within the context of recent methodologies and research that demonstrate the impact of intangibles on organisational performance.”

The other workshop focuses on how existing and emerging technologies are being used to support leadership development initiatives, what can be learnt from best practices among early adopter organisations. It will also explore some of the challenges that need to be addressed.
