The Three Levers of a Successful CLO

Infopro Learning

In “The Three Levers of a Successful CLO” guide , we define these levers and why they matter most to the success of all leaders in the L&D organization. Successful learning and development can set a company apart from competition, better engage and train employees, cut costs related to workplace inefficiencies, and create a lasting competitive advantage. But, it is the job of the CLO to take a bigger picture view of their organization and to not solve for individual problems.

Innovation and the CLO

CLO Magazine

The CLO Role. Given these conclusions, the CLO is in a great position to make a difference in innovation. So, what can the CLO do? There are many opportunities to foster creativity and the CLO should drive programs ranging from suggestion systems, idea contests and improvement projects to teaching creativity, brainstorming and design thinking. The CLO should also sponsor programs such as innovation champions, innovation labs and innovation task forces. Jack J.

CLO Apps, Please!

CLO Magazine

Imagine if we had an open learning app format that allowed a CLO to select an app that would work safely and securely on top of and with most learning systems. This could be a high-function app and cost $9 per person. I am sure the AARP would buy an ad on this app, subsidizing its cost. This could be free or cost $1 per device. Imagine a robust and ever-changing CLO app page, with apps for learners, designers, managers and, of course, apps for the CLO.

Hiring a Chief Learning Officer?

Your Training Edge

I have found myself in discussions with a number of companies that are seeking a Chief Learning Officer (CLO), or the equivalent. What has surprised me is the hesitancy of the companies in taking the ‘step’ to a true training program, and hiring the CLO who would be responsible for it. It seems that many of these firms [and their management] look at training as a ‘cost center’ and has minor or irrelevant impact on the profitability of the firm.

Workers up and down the organization weigh the opportunity costs of their time constantly. That makes the opportunity cost for learning seem high.

If you’re in doubt, it’s a good time to reevaluate the opportunity cost of your learning programs.
