Extended Enterprise Learning: L&D Drives Value Beyond the Workforce

The success of an organization does not always rely solely on the people who work there. Businesses have a network of customers, partners and other stakeholders who can have a tremendous impact on outcomes. However, for many of these companies, leveraging learning to enhance these relationships is a missed opportunity.

One of the main reasons this opportunity is missed is because the extended enterprise is such a disparate and varied web of audiences, each with its own needs, outcomes and relationships to the business. Take all the challenges L&D teams face with internal learners and multiply them by ten.

It is critical to get a handle on delivering effective learning experiences to these groups. For customers, it provides an opportunity to ensure they know everything they need to know to achieve success with a company’s products and services.
