Matthew Brown, VP of Learning and Brand Success

Do you or your learning and development team feel like order-takers in your organization?

Often the learning and development teams feel somewhat separate from the rest of the organization and are brought into the conversation way later than they would like.

This is a common problem in companies and can lead to a gap in understanding, which can have a significant impact on the training content that L&D professionals come up with.

If this sounds familiar, the best solution is to go from being just an order-taker to becoming a strategic business partner instead.

In this episode of The Learning Xchange, Schoox’s Matthew Brown (VP of Learning and Brand success) takes you through ways to help you shift from being an order-taker to a business partner.

  • Why a gap in understanding the organization can impact the learning content
