A Taste for Growth: CLO of the Year Rob Lauber

CLO Magazine

To solve Yum Brands’ challenges, CLO Rob Lauber has created a learning strategy that helps the business and employees grow, making him this year’s CLO of the Year. From 2006 to 2009 he was on the national board of directors at the American Society for Training & Development, or ASTD, and was chairman in 2010. He is on the ASTD board selection committee and was chairman of the committee from 2010 to 2012. 2008: ASTD treasurer.

The 0% Solution to Learning

The Peformance Improvement

The implication of striving for an “isolation score of zero” is that the whole organization owns learning, not just HR and the CLO, and when the organization needs performance improvement, training is not the first course of action.

ASTD groks informal learning

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Informal Learning was the theme of Tony Bingham’s keynote presentation at ASTD’s International Conference and Exhibition in Washington this month. To my surprise, he brought up a recent article I wrote for CLO magazine on the importance of making connections.

Will at Work Learning

The Northern New Jersey ASTD Learning Leaders Forum has invited me to speak at their October 15th meeting. Advice for learning leaders (CLO''s, training directors, etc.).

To whet the appetite, we created the following video interview, separated into separate videos.

Manager's Role in Learning and Performance Improvement

The Peformance Improvement

This is the question I will be answering in an ASTD-sponsored webcast on September 24, 2013 from 1:00 p.m. Managers have control of their own learning, not corporate trainers, HR, or a CLO. What should be a manager’s role in employee learning?

#ICE #ASTD2013 conference recap

Challenge to Learn

So my first ICE ASTD conference is finished. I was happy to hear that content management is in the top 10 of attention points for CLO’s. ICE ASTD 2013. As said, my first ASTD conference. What do I think of it and what are the trends I see. Let start with the trends.

E-Learning: An Impossible Dream?

eLearning 24-7

You see in Linkedin groups – go check out the ASTD Linkedin group and see how many times they focus on ILT vs WBT. Until a few years ago, ASTD didn’t offer a standalone E-Learning conference, yet e-learning has been around for more than a dozen years. ASTD is not the only ones. E-Learning (web based) has been in existence for more than 12 years, yet its impact in terms of the masses is still relatively low in comparison with other training approaches.

Then, on 12 Oct in Laguna Niguel at the CLO Fall Symposium , I’ll be joining with my ITA colleagues Jay Cross and Jane Hart to talk about controversial issues for CLOs. I’m still not done, as I head later that week to DC to speak to the local ASTD chapter with a talk on mobile learning and a social learning workshop. The travel schedule is booting up again, and I’ll be hither and yon speaking about this and that for a good part of the coming two months.

The Big Winner: OpenSesame on the Road Hoodie Contest


After spending our 2010-2011 conference season handing out OpenSesame hoodies at DevLearn, ASTD TechKnowledge, Learning Solutions, the CLO Symposium, ASTD International Conference & Expo and eLearning DevCon, we decided it was time to find out where those hoodies had spent their summer.

Timing is Everything

Jay Cross

Think about it at the next CLO Symposium. A landmark study by ASTD and IBM interviewed CLOs and CxOs at 26 leading companies across 11 industries (see The C-level and the Value of Learning , T+D magazine, October 2005).

If We Had To Do It All Again

CLO Magazine

There’s no specific right way to become a CLO. That’s what makes the CLO role so vibrant. Whatever path you take, there are some key competencies you need to succeed as a CLO. It focuses the CLO on performance and outcomes that are important to the organization, and it helps CLOs translate learning into business imperatives that appeal to and are understood by the decision-makers and influencers in their organization.

Or you may have entered the learning world through a professional qualification from the CIPD, ASTD or some other national or regional awarding body, or through a College or University diploma or degree.

The Picture Is Bigger Than It Appears

CLO Magazine

Our 2012 CLO of the Year, Pat Crull, group vice president and chief learning officer of Time Warner Cable (TWC), certainly exemplifies this kind of visionary, holistic leadership. As the company’s first CLO, she built it from scratch, taking ownership of TWC’s organizational-effectiveness efforts and diversity and inclusion practices along with learning and development.


Top eLearning Sites?

Tony Karrer

And there are sites like ASTD that go well outside the world of eLearning. e.g., ASTD (which has good traffic), CLO Media (which doesn’t seem to have good traffic volume) Sites that I can’t get accurate numbers separate from the base site. Learning Circuits is part of ASTD.

What Can You Expect in 2013?

CLO Magazine

According to the 2011 ASTD State of the Industry report, many organizations are investing in technology-based delivery systems and methods, relying on technology to deliver content through social media tools. The CLO role is shifting from a learning mindset around a curriculum to a mindset of developing a highly proficient workforce to support the business.

Essential Reading (and Other Skills) for Staying Ahead in the Learning Space


Another way I stay current is by networking with industry professionals, attending conferences, and participating in discussion groups on Linkedin, the CLO Network and on #lrnchat , a Twitter chat of learning professionals.

Learning Circuits The online publication of ASTD which contains articles written on a variety of topics centered around online learning. And of course ASTD's T&D Magazine contains good information about learning and development as well.

On the road again

Clark Quinn

However, I haven’t been on the road since early June for any conferences , after running a workshop at ASTD’s international conference and then presenting at DAU/GMU’s Innovations in eLearning Conference.


Give Back to the Profession

CLO Magazine

The American Society for Training & Development, or ASTD, does its part by recognizing a top dissertation each year. But we need to shrink the world — make the truly best practices more widely known and accessible by all,” said Nancy Lewis, former vice president of learning at IBM and former CLO at ITT. Security Associates, a uniformed guard company, earned a best practice award from ASTD. Capture learning professionals’ knowledge and keep up with new leaders.

He is an influential voice in the IT training industry, speaking at conferences and participating within industry associations such as CLO Magazine, CompTIA, ASTD, The E-learning Guild and The Masie Centre. On May 21, LearnTrends will be hosting an eLearning Tour Event. This is designed to take you on a quick tour of different examples of what's happening out there.

The CLO focus in this case – i.e. catch the balls as they’re thrown over the fence and run with them - is understandable but it’s certainly neither an optimal nor sustainable strategy. The CIPD Value of Learning study mirrored the earlier IBM/ASTD work.

Establishing Connections on LinkedIn

eLearning Blender

I started off by joining the ASTD, and CLO groups and I think I'll look into the eLearning Guilds group next. Everybody talks about how great LinkedIn is so a while back I set up an account to see what everybody was talking about. And that's about as far as I went, I set up an account then didn't really know what to do with it. I found that without connections it's hard to make any use out of it. So that raises the question; how do you establish connections on LinkedIn?

Competency Models, Mindhacks, Training, Experiential Learning, Twitter, SharePoint, and Order
