Another blog post from Wei Wang, international relations manager:
At the April Member Workshops, we acknowledged the participation of
four ASTD Employee Learning Week (ELW) participants from China-Baosteel Group Corporation, IBM China Global Delivery, Siemens
Ltd., China, and Motorola University Asia Pacific. Here's a short
description of what these companies did for ELW 2008:
Siemens Management Institute sponsored a PM Alumni Day of 2008 to
allow Siemens' project managers to share experiences and network
with the senior management in China and program representatives
from Germany. Best practices and live project sharing from both
internal Siemens groups and external project management
practitioners were highlighted.
Baosteel Group posted impressive training statistics: 215 programs
and 881 hours of training were provided. Almost 24,000 Baosteel
employees were involved in formal training during ELW, including
Motorola University celebrated 15 years of teaching best practices
in quality management and business development in China with a
ceremony and celebration for 300 guests, held last November. The
anniversary celebration included recognizing many partners and
instructors who have contributed to MU's success, as well as
presentations on various topics.
The learning champions shared their best practices in training and
development, which were greatly appreciated by the workshop
attendees. They also received the Champion of Learning Certificate
from ASTD. To learn more about the best practices from the learning
champions, please visit http://www.employeelearningweek.org/.
