Join Tara, Nitya and Ritchie to share best practices and lessons learned from their award-winning programs. Ingersoll-Rand is a 145-Year-Old Company, with 7000 sellers and managers distributed globally. Each business had their own sales culture, enablement and processes. Tara led the sales transformation process to customize and enable one consistent sales management methodology. The implementation spanned multiple geographical and cultural environments, requiring customized content and coaching to address both internal and external cultural diversity associated with business units located around the world. This initial project impacted more than 600 sales managers and their sales teams. IT has now been rolled out to all 7,000 sellers national due to the outstanding business impact. T-Mobile is one of the fastest growing mobile services in the USA with 72.6 million subscribers and a reputation of exceeding customer expectations.

They launched a sales management learning and transformation program. Branding focused on promoting the Un-Carrier culture with a theme to “Unleash, Empower and Excel U”. The goal was cultural change, excitement and a focus on working cohesively as one unified T-Mobile to delivery an outstanding customer experience.

Globalization, social media, ever-increasing computing power, and the proliferation of low-cost advanced technologies have created a level of worldwide complexity and rapid change never before seen. To remain competitive in this environment, today’s workers, military members, and civil servants require an expanded set of competencies, higher levels of nuanced skills such as critical thinking and emotional intelligence, and more efficient and agile pathways to expertise. Achieving these outcomes depends, at least in part, on enhancing our learning ecosystem. This includes, for instance, identifying new ways to empower our personnel to learn anytime/anywhere, enhancing the quality of learning delivered, and better tailoring learning experiences to individuals’ needs. This session outlines a vision for the future of learning, painting a picture of the “art of the possible” and proposing a roadmap that outlines five enabling conditions needed to achieve this future vision. The conditions include: 1. Cultivate ubiquitous learner-centric, technology-enabled instruction; 2. Build upon the foundations of data-driven learning; 3. Foster a learning culture at the organizational level; 4. Encourage and empower social learning; and 5. Draw upon deliberate practices and the evidence-based body-of-knowledge from learning science. Enacting any one of these conditions will pose significant challenges, and particular science or technology gaps associated with each condition create additional hurdles. Nonetheless, the time is right, in terms of understanding and demand, to take action to modernize and improve the wider, integrated, lifelong learning system!
