Achieve success launching a micro-learning video strategy across your organization.
Hear real-life examples of setbacks and failures along the road to implementation. This session will look at how one small/medium-sized organization went from zero micro-learning to making it a main training medium for employees.
Explore topics that include the impetus to change, metrics, stakeholder socialization, and partnerships needed.
