  6. 6. Our Opportunity in Learning Our experience with customer site visits, customer requests, monitoring cases and external benchmarking indicates that the Leadership and Learning portion of the OD&L CoE requires a strategy and structure to meet the critical learning needs of the business and position learning for the future. 6 What We Have Found Critical Learning Needs  Lack of effective ways for knowledge sharing and knowledge transfer  Over reliance on instructor-led training which is costly, especially for those on direct labor  Excessive mandatory training requirements compared to our peers – redirect unnecessary cost and time charging to much needed ‘people manager’ and other capability building  Employees and front line supervisors are not aware of the development options available to them  The ability to find immediate answers to solve business problems and increase performance  Maintaining business capability during times of increased retirements, reductions in force, and attrition  Cost-effective and efficient delivery of learning (e.g., shorter course length, alternative delivery times, different delivery modes)  Establish a learning environment that our future workforce expects
