Building Human Capital Strategies

  Leading High Impact Learning (LHIL) 2009

The definition of a great learning experience evolves as organizations respond to the needs of the firm and the individuals within it. As someone shaping the learning environment in your organization, you have to contend with multiple demands placed on development experiences ranging from competency building to addressing urgent strategic issues.

IMD’s Leading High Impact Learning (LHIL) will help you make sense of this landscape. IMD is committed to generating and leveraging knowledge to have real and positive impact on business and society through relevant research and delivery of the most compelling leadership learning experiences worldwide. This is in part why development practitioners of leading companies attend LHIL: to generate ideas on how to build the right learning experience in their respective organizations.
