Improving the business impact of training and development efforts is at the heart of a new conference offering from the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) and the Fort Hill Company. The Learning Transfer Conference will take place April 7-8 in Chicago and in November near Washington, D.C., on a date to be announced shortly.
Learning transfer is a key to improving the business impact of training. In an era of increased accountability and the drive for measurable results, learning and development professionals need to have tools that move them from order taker to strategic business partner.
The Learning Transfer Conference kicks off what is a 10-week learning program that begins with an interactive 1 day workshop. During the program, attendees will learn to apply the Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning to dramatically improve the business impact of training and development efforts, and will interact with the authors of this best-selling and widely-adopted approach to enhancing training's impact. They will also benefit from online coaching and interaction with the facilitators and other participants for two months after the workshop itself.
