L&D Makes Learning An Experience At ATD India Summit

INDIA SUMMIT 2017

ABOUT INDIA SUMMIT


At the third annual India Summit, hosted by Infosys on its Bangalore campus, speakers and attendees
tackled a perennial learning and development (L&D) problem: how to make training an irreplaceable part of an
organization.

In his opening remarks, Krish Shankar, group head of HRD at Infosys, highlighted the benefits of gamification—
knowledge sharing that’s coupled with fun activities. He also pointed out the advantages of making experiential
learning the heart of the learning process.

Continuing in the same vein, Sardek Love, certified facilitator and president of Infinity Consulting,
challenged attendees to do more than simply impart knowledge. Manufacturing a learning experience, he said,
was key. Love also noted that organizations must focus on the 25 percent of content that participants are likely
to implement on the job.

However, most training programs don’t close skill gaps in the workplace, according to Jaideep Gerald, the COO
of certification-training provider Simplilearn. He discussed four steps to help L&D practitioners make training
more relevant to learners:

• Spark their imaginations


• Personalize training
• Cultivate their curiosity
• Celebrate their success.

Attendees also had the chance to share their own experiences during an intensive brainstorming session lead
by Smitha Murthy, head of organization development at Infosys BPO. During the session, participants answered
questions about how they designed and measured training programs, and the role L&D played in their
organizations. One of the key challenges facing L&D, the session revealed, is establishing the business case for
training.
Appropriately, the summit then featured a panel discussion on learning as a key business driver. The panellists
talked about the importance of incorporating new technology into learning, speaking the language of business,
and keeping abreast of trends and changes. Additionally, I spoke about some of the practices and ideas we’ve
implemented at Infosys BPO, such as: Project Communic-Care, our Junior Management Leadership Program, a
learning lounge, learning kiosks, and a cloud-based learning platform that helps people use technology to learn
and makes learning autonomous.

During his closing speech, Raghavendra K, senior vice president and global head of HRD at Infosys BPO, echoed
the sentiments of the other speakers. He stressed the need for L&D practitioners to adapt to today’s dynamic
and globalized economy, and to ensure that training initiatives truly support learners.

August/September 2018
Mumbai and Bengaluru

The Association for Talent Development (ATD) returns to India for the Sixth annual ATD 2018 India Summit in
Mumbai and Bangalore in partnership with MCI India and Infosys BPO. The theme of this year’s event is creating
a culture of learning and innovation.

According to our recent research report, we explore how robust cultures of learning are distinct hallmarks of
organizations that consistently produce the best business results—companies that lead the world’s markets in
revenue growth, profitability, market share, and customer satisfaction. However, this research also shows that
despite the obvious benefits, only 31 percent of organizations have well-developed learning cultures.

This is why this year’s India Summit will focus on how organizations and talent development professionals can
build a culture of learning and innovation to drive business results. You will hear from award–winning global and
Indian companies to learn the best practices for how they’ve successfully built a culture of learning and
innovation.
