Welcome to the Learning Executive Briefing
in its new format - a monthly newsletter for the 8000+ members of ASTD’s community of practice for senior leaders and executives. For many years, LXB has served up articles, profiles, interviews, case studies, and book reviews for an audience of senior learning professionals and it will continue to do that and more in its new incarnation as a guide to the best of the best for your community. Look to the LXB to streamline the time you spend staying on top of your profession.
In this issue, for example, you’ll find the inside story on how PepsiCo broke new ground in capability development with a scalable learning model, a strategically defined curriculum, and advanced learning approaches to spread financial skills across the whole company. And in View From the Learning Executive, career development expert Bill Rothwell tells us why companies are foolish to neglect workforce development.
The roles of top learning executives are evolving quickly and it’s our goal to map that territory for you in the Senior Leaders and Executives Community of Practice. Each month the Learning Executive Briefing will alert and link you to content in the most relevant articles, books, blog posts, Tweets, videos, learning sessions, and more.
As community managers, our job is to meet your needs, so of course we want to hear from you. Let us know what would make the time you spend in this community valuable for you. Share your concerns and challenges. Ask questions. Tell us what you are doing that merits sharing with your peers. Write some blog posts. Get involved.
