I have the current pleasure of attending the 2019 ATD International Conference https://atdconference.td.org/ in Washington DC for the next couple of days.

I have some cool new lightweight equipment to record some interviews (which I already have put to good use) and will be sharing some things here as well as on the feed for the show.

Highlights of today include a great presentation from Paul Signorelli, Koko Nakahara, Evert Prius and Amit Nagpal gave a presentation on Implementing Machine Learning and AI in Learning—Global Cases and Best Practices. 

Program highlights:

  • AI and Machine Learning is taking us from the construction industry in Japan, to India, to KLM Cargo in the Netherlands to URI in the United States. A truly global presentation.
  • Fail to Learn. You have to fail to learn. AI is not to replace but enhance the learning experience for the learners. AI does some stuff WITH us not as US.
  • Fact: 46% of job descriptions are obsolete. HR should move from workforce planning to WORK Planning. Need to create or be sure what work is coming in near future.
  • AI will impact ALL types of industries and learning. Even in places where the trainer never thought MY job could be in jeopardy. Change is coming.

Also, I interviewed Paul after the program about his session and then interviewed @HalellyAzulay host of   and author of Employee Development on a Shoestring from ATD Press.    

The interviews will be on this page and on our Talkshoe page soon. 

Looking forward to more interviews and sessions tomorrow.  Follow @tisfortraining or @baldgeekinmd for my updates, or follow the twitter hashtag #ATD2019 for great content

 

Everyone brings something to their organization

If it’s ain’t you, it’s diversity. – Maurice Coleman

On the call were Paul Signorelli, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Maurice Coleman.  We decided to focus on fostering cultural competencies through training and quickly moved to talking about diversity, inclusion, as well as being culturally competent.  We told some wonderful stories to help make our points and there was even some laughter.  Give the show a listen and leave a comment with resources you want to share or thoughts on this topic.
