In the June 2019 edition of “In Real Life” in Learning Solutions Magazine, I break down the biggest conversations in L&D to six key concepts.

“Modern” may look like a simple word, but it’s an inherently vague concept. It’s also a moving target. Today’s modern is tomorrow’s outdated. Therefore, L&D cannot afford to define “modern” with the most popular technology or content conversations of the day. Otherwise, they’ll always be chasing the next big thing. Rather, we must dig down to the foundation of what we do in L&D, establish the right principles and only then apply our current tools and tactics. Then, we’ll always be ready to handle the next business priority and provide the support people need to solve their next big problem—whatever it may be.
