Virtual tech alters 21st century corporate learning
Training Magazine
Technology has altered the reality of today's learners. The evidence is all around us. Employees (students), both young and old, constantly have their noses buried in large and small screens, often at the same time.Failure to recognize this fundamental shift in the world is doing students a disservice. Luckily, the growing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) trend among organizations allows employees to use their smart phones, tablets, etc., for training is ideally suited for the corporate classroom. It allows corporate learning programs to help 21st century learners take in information in a manner that is more aligned with the rest of their lives.

Training evaluation mistake No.10 — Using Training Jargon with Business Partners
Kirkpatrick Partners
Wendy once worked in an organization with an IT department that had its own culture, separate from the rest of the company. If your computer had a problem, you had to learn how to submit a work ticket in their non-integrated system, and describe your problem in correct computer terminology, or you faced a long, long wait to get your issue resolved. Layman's terms were met with condescending snickers and an even longer delay.

How to close the IT talent gap
CIO
Consider this piece of data from the CIO Executive Council's report, Creating Your Future-State IT Leadership Team Today. Two hundred senior IT personnel were asked how important they thought development of their own people was. These IT leaders almost universally (96 percent) rated this as either important or very important, but when asked how adept their leadership was at tackling this integral part of employee management more than 30 percent rated themselves as not proficient. One way companies can help better develop their IT talent internally is to build an individualized training program based on a skills analysis.
