Tampa, Fla., May 14, 2008 — Paradigm Learning announced today that it will be co-presenting with Expedia, Inc.,at the 2008 American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) conference in San Diego, Calif., on June 1 from 1:45 to 3:00 p.m.

The presentation, titled How to Accelerate Your Manager’s Learning, will focus on several learning objectives, including the development of a leadership competency model. Participants will learn how to do the following:

  •     Define the skills and knowledge necessary to develop successful managers and leaders in an organization.
  •     Translate these skills and this knowledge into a highly effective leadership competency model.
  •     Develop evaluation criteria for the selection of training partners who will complement the organization’s curriculum and in-house expertise.

When Expedia separated from its parent company in 2005, its priorities became standardized manager training, business acumen, and consistent learning objectives across global and company brands. It took Expedia less than two years to successfully globalize its corporate learning function for building management and leadership skills. At this session, you’ll hear how that was accomplished.

Paradigm Learning will join Expedia in this presentation to talk about business acumen, business games and simulations, and discovery learning as components of Expedia’s overall training strategy.
