Many businesses intrinsically value learning, but have a hard time making the leap to invest in a strategic learning organization designed to look holistically at learning and talent development across the business. When describing the value learning brings to a business, many learning professionals illustrate their contribution in terms of traditional training metrics (i.e., number of employees developed, utilization of learning staff, cost per hour of learning) or cost savings. While these are important metrics, they do not adequately describe why learning is important to an organization or why a strategic approach (i.e. a corporate university) to learning brings additional benefits not realized using a traditional training department approach.
With this in mind, CorpU designed this presentation to help learning executives make the business case for building a corporate university to not only look at learning strategically across the business but also to help spread and foster organizational culture.

“In my particular case, I certainly care about the HR functions, but that’s not why I wake up every day. I care about advancing the ball down the field with our people’s professional development skills and knowledge. You guys focus 100% on the learning piece, and that’s what I like.”Jim StewartCLO, Teradata
