How IBM Turned Its Online Course Dropout Problem
Into A Success Story

IBM faced a real problem with its online Big Data University.

The content was excellent, but the dropout rate was high. After implementing an Open Badge program, every metric, from new attendees to course completions to the average number of courses taken, increased well beyond expectations.

Join this session to see how IBM increased enrollments and turned dropouts into repeat customers.

You’ll get an insider’s view of the “before and after” statistics behind this wildly successful program.

Presenter: David Leaser, Senior Program Executive, Innovation and Growth Initiatives, IBM Training & Skills

Part 2:
Organizational Network Analysis for Developing & Retaining Talent

As organizations implement matrix structures, establish virtual teams, and outsource functions, they are putting greater faith in informal networks to get work done.

Unfortunately, leaders have less visibility into these informal networks.  As a result, they can make decisions with blinders on.

Organizational network analysis, ONA, provides a way to x-ray an organization, to illuminate and analyze the patterns of informal relationships that employees use to make decisions, solve problems and share information.

Steve will introduce you to ONA and discuss how it can be used to identify emerging leaders, improve collaboration and innovation, develop talent, and increase retention.

Presenter: Stephen Garcia, (LinkedIn profile) Managing Director, Contemporary Leadership Advisors
