Improving Organizational Performance using the Experience API


Published on

People are learning everywhere. Modern and natural learning happens on mobile devices, in social networks, on the job, and via formal assessments. It happens on numerous systems, from Yammer and SharePoint to SkillSoft and Khan Academy. Organizations are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to create this training using old technology standards. As a result, data is stuck in silos and L&D has little to no idea what training is effective or how it impacts business results.

This session provided a brief non-technical overview of the Experience API and showed real-use cases inside organizations. It also covers how to assess organizational readiness, strategic planning, and practical implementation. Participants will acquire the knowledge needed to improve organizational performance using the Experience API.
