WSAE members may use the dedicated discount code WSAE2023 for $10 savings.

You deliver trainings. You might also produce a few checklists, templates, or white papers to help people get what they need. You struggle to figure out the business model to cover the costs of your programs, let alone maximize their impact across your community. It is time for a learning strategy. An effective learning strategy helps people solve problems so they can do their jobs better. It gives them what they need when they need it so they have greater impact. It also guides you on how to communicate, price programs, and prioritize opportunities. Just as the process of building a strategic plan makes space for important conversations about direction and priorities, a learning strategy answers core questions so you can run your programs with greater efficiency and effectiveness. [This course is designed for learning directors, executive directors, and consultants interested in making their learning program more strategic.]
