Special Interest Groups (SIGs)


 EFMD's Special Interest Groups are highly focused problem-driven learning groups that allow members to mobilize the collective intelligence of the Learning & Development community to build solutions to common challenges.

The EFMD SIG design is based on a "problem centric" collaborative approach in which a temporary community tackle a set of agreed shared challenges. EFMD provides high level experts to facilitate the process and a member of the community (prime peer) is initially identified to raise and highlight current challenges. 

A practical approach and methodology is used with a workplan that is agreed with participating organisations at the start of the SIG. The outputs from the SIG are a set of tangible deliverables such as defined strategies and approaches, roadmaps, tools, case studies and output from expert research and advice.

The outcomes of each SIG are shared with the wider network (EFMD members and non-members) through the Future Series Webinars, which are available throughout the year.
