Who will benefit?
This session is designed to benefit Heads of Learning & Development in organisations considering new approaches to executive development and how to lead global teams.
This 45 minute interactive webinar will cover the following aspects of Networked Learning:
- Programme Integration
How do you decide whether to integrate a networked learning approach into your executive development programme (or even into your organisation)? The introductory webinar will show how we can integrate appropriate technologies into a programme to increase the networking potential across the participant group, between participants and Cranfield faculty expertise and between participants and your own in-house expertise. We will be putting questions to you, the webinar audience, to help you gauge your appetite and readiness for integrating an enhanced degree of social capital back into your business.
Cranfield’s networked learning approach uses contemporary technology, such as webinars, video diaries and e-learns/books. But quite what technologies are appropriate for your programme and your organisation will differ, depending on a range of factors. This demonstration webinar explores how Cranfield partners with organisations to establish the most sensitive balance between pure gimmick and business reality, to establish what ‘appropriate’ technology is in each individual business context? Getting this right means the difference between building a sustainable organisational competence and just filling a shorter term knowledge gap.
By exploiting the networks that emerge over the period of a customised executive education programme (say, 4-9 months), the impact it has on an organisation can start to take effect from day-one of the programme; it is not delayed until the very end. For instance, after closing-out on an initial team webinar, led by a Cranfield professor or facilitator on a topic relevant to that team, programme participants can then put that knowledge/inisght (e.g. a checklist, a strategic framework, a suggestion from a colleague) to effect immediately. This demonstration webinar will give examples from existing client programmes of how the networked learning approach redefines the standard notions of ‘impact’.
