by | Apr 15, 2015 | Case Studies

Towards Maturity and the CIPD have recently launched a new report L&D Evolving Roles:Enhancing Skills that considers the future direction of L&D and the skills that they need to get there.

The report included a number of detailed interviews including this one with Sarah Lindsell – Director, Global & UK Learning Technology & Transformation and Kerry Georgiou – Global Digital Learning Administrator, PwC.

PwC LLP is a network of firms in 157 countries, providing professional services to clients through four lines of service: tax, assurance, consulting, and deals. The organisation employs over 95,000 people across 758 locations. In 2014 PwC reported global gross revenues of $34 billion.

PwC have created a digital learning academy for L&D professionals. The academy builds blended learning skills, alongside how to consult, build relationships and have challenging conversations. The L&D team also have dedicated research arm, so they can continually scan the horizon for new developments.

Quick Tips

  • Whether you’re an SME or part of a large company, L&D needs a close link to the core leaders within the business because the role of L&D is to solve business problems. It’s not so much a matter of where you are. It’s more about where you are linked to.
  • ‘For us as an organisation, we’re moving very much from big curriculums to experiences, events and a much more agile way of working. We’re looking at not building these massive, great tanker ships, but building little assets, mini-ships, that we can deploy really quickly and that you can put together in a different format. If you build everything quite modular and in sections, people can find a personalised learning path through it…’ Sarah
  • One of the biggest challenges for any sort of organisation is to make its training look as good as what everybody is accessing outside of work
