Companies today are confronted with an unprecedented pace of change in their environments. This requires continuous organizational learning and adaptation of outdated strategies, processes, or structures. At the same time, successful innovation allows trend-setting companies to reap enormous benefits.

However, although change has in many businesses become the only constant, many employees and even many leaders still perceive it more as a threat than as an opportunity. That’s why the Corporate Learning Function has an important role to play as a force of innovation and change inside the company, both on the individual and on the organizational level. On the individual level, the learning function can enable change by imparting concrete new competencies or skills, but also more abstractly by conveying a learner’s mindset. On the organizational level, the learning function can act as a two-way channel for dialogue on needed changes between the different levels of the organization.

How the learning function has to be designed as a role model to fulfill this catalyst role? Our host Siemens AG has innovation as one of its core values and a pioneering spirit at the heart of its vision. It will show what its corporate learning organization is doing to deal with these aspirations in the fields of both, leadership development (Siemens Leadership Excellence), and business learning (Learning Campus). Openness to change can be shown by deploying innovative didactic approaches and learning technologies. Proximity to the business allows the learning function to be a partner in building new strategic competencies and in identifying needs for change at an early stage.

Highlight of the Day

  • The workshop will be led by Achim Wolter, Chief Operating Officer, Siemens Leadership Excellence. The Siemens view on Innovation and Leadership will be shared by Nicolas von Rosty, Head of Corporate Executive Development.
