Episode 5: The Commercial Training Manager Learning Journey with Jimmy Christie

Listen on


Training is more than just checking a box. Listen as Jimmy walks you through how to shift that mindset from just checking a training box to adopting a learning culture. We discuss the importance of compliance, how that can create a challenge when looking at innovations, and how to overcome that with excellent results. We also discuss the most important question anyone in training faces: What is the ROI of training? And, based on his experiences, how to build that case to show it. We examine the insights that data can provide L&D managers to create a more robust learning path, such as adaptive learning and how AI can enhance your data.
