    The complete foundational program for designing outcome-based training.

    Discover all of the tools necessary to develop powerful, bottom-line focused training. Using a human performance improvement approach to instructional design, you will learn best practices for conducting a needs assessment, job/task analysis, and course design and development using templates exclusive to ATD. Leave with a structured step-by-step process that can be immediately applied to the development of your own training programs.

    Developed for participants new to instructional design or for those who want to gain a comprehensive skill set, this is the complete workshop for designing outcome-based training. The program content is based on key knowledge and actions defined by the ATD Competency Model Area of Expertise for Instructional Design. You will leave knowing how to design a complete program that aligns with your business goals, including participant guides, instructor guides, and other materials. In addition, you will have an opportunity to work on the design and development of your own training program throughout the workshop.

    Why You Should Attend:

    • Gain a strong foundation in the needs analysis process to ensure your training initiatives are aligned with organization goals.
    • Develop engaging instructional events that take human memory and learning processes into account.
    • Create participant guides, facilitator guides, and supporting materials using templates provided in the workshop.
    • Ensure your training has the impact you and your organization expect.

    What to Expect:

    • Pre-Work: Choose one of your current training programs to work on during the workshop and read the ATD Infoline "Basics of ISD Revisited."
    • Homework/Intersession Work: For the online program, intersession work includes a weekly online discussion forum, where you will post assignments and engage with your peers.
    • Supplemental Resources: This program includes tools and templates to help you apply what you learned on the job.
    • Technical Requirements: The online version of this program is conducted in the WebEx Training Center. Special software is not required. You only need a standard web browser and telephone or VoIP capability to participate. There are no technical requirements for the face-to-face program. In addition, it is strongly recommended to use a desktop or laptop computer as using a tablet or phone severely limits your ability to fully and actively participate in the program.

    Most exceptional leaders intentionally engage in habits and even hobbies that improve creativity and innovation, boost personal productivity, build empathy and understanding, increase personal credibility, and positively impact the morale and enthusiasm of others. We’ll explore the habits of leaders such as Bill Gates, Padmasree Warrior, Eric Yuan, Sheryl Sandberg and other top leaders, and how these habits support inspirational and visionary leadership.

    This interactive session will help you strategize about the habits that support your own professional goals:

    • Explore habits of leaders that support creativity, innovation, and diverse perspectives
    • Examine habits of leaders that build empathy and emotional intelligence
    • Evaluate habits of leaders that allow leaders to build morale and engage others

    The Effort Effect

    Why do some people reach their fullest potential, while equally talented others don't?  Why do some give up in the face of failure, while others find failure motivating?  According to a Stanford psychologist, you'll reach new heights if you learn to embrace the occasional tumble.    

    Join your fellow colleagues as we explore and discuss.  Our discussion will be inspired by an article from Stanford Magazine.

    • Alliant International University, 1000 South Fremont Avenue, Alhambra, CA 91803-1360 ~ Building B, Room 101/103 & 102 for pre-paid dinner

    The Association for Talent Development-Los Angeles Organization Development Special Interest Group, OD in LA, and Alliant International University invite you to a simulation workshop:

    Socio-technical Systems (STS) Interventions:

    Why They’re about to Become Important Again and How They Work

    with Cris Hagen, MA


    Thursday March 28, 2019 at Alliant International University


    Cutoff for dinner registration is 9 a.m. on 3/22..

    Walkins welcome for program at 6:50.


    • 6:00pm Self-paid dinner through OD in L.A. and ATD-LA
    • 6:50pm Introductions: Meet the speaker and the participants
    • 7:00pm STS and the “Flying Starship Factory” Workshop
    • 9:00pm Adjourn

    OD practitioners understand the notion that an organization is a “system”, and that changes in one part of that system can have consequences for other parts of the system.  Changes in the compensation system can impact productivity and sales in unpredictable ways.  A new software program can promise improved efficiencies, but if isn’t accepted by workers this promise will ultimately fail. Unless proposed improvement projects examine and address changes to the entire system, they result in piecemeal changes that fail to achieve intended benefits.

    Sometimes, an old solution becomes new again. Over half a century ago, in a somewhat unlikely setting – the coalfields of Yorkshire, England – the “socio-technical systems” (STS) intervention approach was born.  Today, with the advent of artificial intelligence and “co-bots” working with humans, STS is making a comeback.

    Early descriptions of STS failed to offer OD practitioners a “roadmap” to apply the theory to the design of work systems in order to realize the joint benefits of increased productivity AND increased worker satisfaction.

    At the March 28th OD in L.A./ATD-LA event at CSPP, you will get an experiential introduction from Cris Hagen to a set of tools for analyzing a work system and designing solutions to achieve measurable improvements to both productivity and worker satisfaction.  Come prepared to participate in “The Flying Starship Factory”, and experience first-hand the impact of work design on productivity and morale.  Learn about the Variance Matrix and the GAIL analysis and how these tools can be used to identify improvement opportunities. 

    Cris Hagen, MA, has worked in Organization and Leadership Development for over 35 years.  He has led numerous successful large-scale change initiatives that involve implementing new systems, culture change, and improving employee engagement. Cris has led internal OD and Leadership Development activities at San Diego Gas & Electric, Rockwell International, Prudential Healthcare, Semtech Corporation, and Ixia Communications.  As a consultant, he has led change management and culture change initiatives for companies such as The Walt Disney Company, Beckman Coulter, STERIS Corporation, Applied Materials, Farmers Insurance, Amgen, and Southern California Edison. Cris’ passion is leadership coaching and designing and facilitating leadership team building workshops.

    [Please note: This meeting is the 4th Thursday.]

    When you think about social media, what big players come to mind – Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram? A recent survey by Pew Research Group revealed that the single most widely-used social platform in the United States is not Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or Instagram. It is YouTube. People flocking to YouTube are not just people under the age of 30. YouTube’s users are people from every age demographic on the planet. YouTube referrals generate more average sales revenue per visit than Twitter. YouTube’s conversion rates rank third among all social media platforms. The fact that YouTube is not top of mind for most professionals and businesses means that it represents a powerful digital marketing opportunity for those who embrace this ubiquitous digital platform. Learn how to take advantage of this disconnect and use this medium as a premier talent development tool.

    Please bring your laptop or mobile device. This is a hands-on session.

    On completion of this session you will:

    1. Identify why developing a YouTube and video strategy is imperative for internal and external clients.
    2. Develop skills to exponentially increase the number of subscribers to a YouTube channel.
    3. Identify how to competitively position your organization and its value proposition on YouTube.
    4. Develop skills to use YouTube to acquire new talent development clients.
    5. Identify how to deliver training content in an engaging and compelling manner.
    6. Evaluate how ranking on YouTube is different from ranking on Google and why you should care.
    7. Comprehend how Search Engine Optimization rules have dramatically changed in 2019 and how to use them to your advantage.
    Program Agenda:
    • 6:30pm-7pm Registration, Networking and Dinner
    • 7pm-8:30pm Introductions, Program and Q&A
    • 8:30pm Informal Networking

    Come ready to engage in conversation with your colleagues. Group yourselves informally based on your interest in a particular topic (topics compiled by Annie Liao, Former Director Educational Outreach, MakerGear 3D Printers). There will be plenty of time before and after the group discussions to mingle, meet new colleagues and share news at this mid-year milestone. Bring a deck of business cards!

    Small Group Discussion Topics

    Leveraging Learning as an Incentive for Employee Retention: With employee turnover rates climbing, L&D leaders can play a strategic role in increasing retention. Discuss how to demonstrate the cost of attrition to an employer to get their buy-in, as well as explore ways to position learning opportunities as an employee benefit through messaging and value propositions.

    Overcoming the Challenge of Limited Time: So many training needs, so little allocated time! Discuss ways to increase learning opportunities through various micro learning opportunities and on-demand options. 

    Evaluating eLearning Trends: A discussion about emerging trends, and what's working and what's not worth the attention in the eLearning space. Use the opportunity to share rubrics individuals use to determine whether or not emerging technologies or trends are worth incorporating into your development plans. 

    None of the Topics of Interest to You? Start your own small group conversation!

    By 2020, nearly half (46 percent) of all U.S. workers will be Millennials (Lynch, 2008). As a talent development professional, what are you doing to engage these learners? Still doing the same lecture and expecting learner’s engagement? Try jazzing up your training by incorporating virtual reality (VR). VR offers an immersive environment that enables all generations of learners to improve skills and change behaviors through realistic practice. 

    Boingo Wireless has used VR in its teambuilding training to build cross functional communication and stronger relationships. And, VR technologies have become more mainstream. Learning professionals should consider how they can use it in their own organizations.

    At this session you will:

    • Explore how VR can impact the stages of group development
    • Explore how VR can impact global talent development
    • Explore how incorporating VR with training will strengthen the talent pipeline
    • Discuss ways to incorporate VR into your learning projects
    • Discuss the skills gap and how incorporating VR in training can fill it

    Your Facilitator

    Join us at the Boingo headquarters as Anthony Lewis, Director of Learning & Development facilitates this exciting event. Anthony has over 30 years in the talent development industry, a master’s degree in leadership, and many industry certifications such as emotional intelligence, DISC, Situational Leadership, coaching, train-the-trainer, instructional systems design and organizational development. Primarily working in the corporate sector, he specializes in creating development programs for all levels. He has created several results-oriented programs such as using virtual reality in a team building course and creating an innovation skills course to support the annual hackathon. Anthony has been a member of ATD-LA for more than 15 years. He has contributed to the chapter’s growth by managing the mentoring program and as chapter president in 2016, earned three prestigious awards, Sharing Our Success, CARE and Chapter of the Month.
