Showdown at the Learning Corral: What You’ll Take Away from LENS Austin

By now, you know that LENS 2019 is two days of thought-provokin’, conversation-startin’, mindset-shiftin’, appetite-stokin’ goodness. But ultimately, that’s just the top layer. As wonderful as brisket and mechanical bulls are, LENS is about learning and building skills. With that in mind, let’s get down to business and focus on the nitty-gritty. Here’s what you can expect to walk away with.

Choosing Learning Tech Vendors: From Business Case Creation to Using Learning Data

Today careers span 60 years (or more), yet the half-life of many skills is only five years. The solution? Selecting a learning technology platform that allows you to identify the right skills for your workforce, build them effectively, and constantly measure the progress of upskilling and reskilling.

RedThread Research recently partnered with Degreed, Axonify, and NovoEd to interview industry leaders about their learning technology ecosystems. The final report found that the biggest challenges were choosing vendors and meeting internal stakeholder needs. 

Choosing Vendors and Meeting internal stakeholder needs are the biggest challenges for businesses.
