About Corporate Learning Week


Add "Future-Ready" To Your L&D Mission & Purpose


"Future-Ready." It's fast becoming the most important topic within training/learning organizations. After all, you & your colleagues are faced with new demands and uncertainty almost daily. Today's chief concerns – leadership in an age of social activism, AI, IA, remote learning, using data science to transform information into competitive advantage, the personal learning cloud (PLC), and all the rest were unheard of just a few years ago.


New Economic Worries & The Impact On L&D Leadership/Management Development Programs


The annual federal deficit – the difference between what the government generates and revenues mostly through taxes & what it spends – is now an eye watering $3.1 trillion (and rising quickly). The accumulated public debt – the sum total of all past federal deficits – has skyrocketed from $23 trillion to more than $27 trillion. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) predicts these numbers will grow much larger in the near-term future. News like this is usually greeted with a nationwide yawn. But, truth be known, this will have a major impact on individuals and corporations. In brief, we can expect the government to print more money and/or raise individual & corporate taxes to finance the ever-growing deficits. Printing more money will likely lead to significant inflation. Raising taxes to the levels now being quoted by politicians, will dampen business investment & consumer spending – leading to a slow/low/no growth economy. Subjects such as inflation accounting, pricing in inflationary economy, and dozens of other topics will have to be high on L&D's management development/leadership core program content.
