World of Learning 2011: Charles Jennings on learning governance


TrainingZone interviewed Charles Jennings at World of Learning about his keynote on learning governance.

Charles Jennings, former chief and learning officer at Reuters and present MD of Duntroon Associates, delivered a keynote address to World of learning entitled: Transforming L&D through effective leraning governance.

In his keynote, Jennings outlined his thinking on learning governance, why it is important for L&D teams and how it can be introduced into the organisation.

He told delegates that learning governance was about having the sytems and processes in place to allow L&D to make desisions, drive accountability and prioritise effort. To do this, L&D had to build learning governance boards to ensure stakeholders drive learning governance through the organisation.
