“Today’s complex, always-on business environment has created an increased desire among learners for more informal learning opportunities.”
Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) October 27, 2015
Harvard Business Publishing today announced the release of LeadingEdge, the premier source for leadership and management content. LeadingEdge is a digital resource designed for leaders at all professional levels to be able to easily access, share and curate world-class thought leadership from Harvard Business School faculty and other renowned business thinkers published in Harvard Business Review and Harvard Business Review Press.
Learners are consistently asking for more informal learning opportunities and accessing content on their own. LeadingEdge is continuously updated with the latest business thinking, concepts and frameworks that business leaders can immediately apply on the job. They can quickly find, save, organize and share articles, case studies, videos and online learning experiences with their colleagues. Leaders can use the solution as an educational resource to improve their leadership skills and to drive initiatives within their team, while learning and development professionals can use LeadingEdge to fuel both formal and informal leadership development programs that meet the needs of today’s busy learner.
“Today’s complex, always-on business environment has created an increased desire among learners for more informal learning opportunities,” said Ray Carvey, executive vice president of corporate learning and international at Harvard Business Publishing. “While there is no shortage of content available, what has been missing until now is a seamless way to connect high-quality content to learning styles and business strategy. LeadingEdge provides this mobile-first solution with world-class thought leadership and curation tools for learning and development professionals to help individuals continuously learn and thrive at their own pace.”
LeadingEdge is designed as a complement to Harvard Business Publishing’s portfolio of award-winning leadership solutions and is a springboard to help organizations:
- Fuel Formal Learning: Use content from LeadingEdge in the virtual, blended and live courses and programs they design and deliver.
- Sustain Learning: Offer access to LeadingEdge to reinforce and sustain formal learning.
- Drive Self-Directed Learning: Provide company-wide access to LeadingEdge as a resource for self-development and discovery-based learning across all levels.
- Support Effective Teams: Provide managers with a resource they can use to kickstart discussions with team members to drive performance and strategy execution.
- Spark New Ideas: Staff at all levels will easily find ideas and concepts that they can apply to their work toward meeting organizations’ strategic and business goals.
“This is a great enhancement to Harvard Business Publishing’s offerings! We are planning to use LeadingEdge as an integral part to support our blended learning approach, whether it’s as support of our leadership development programs, or as a critical tool and resource within our own Leadership Academy to really drive the learning for the topics that we have identified as being critical for our business practices,” said Corinna Davis, Leadership Development Manager at InterContinental Hotels Group.
“Organizations are finally shifting their focus from merely ‘training’ learners adopting a more continuous approach to development. In fact, more mature L&D organizations deliver 50% more learning via experiential, social, and on-demand methods than less advanced ones do,” said Dani Johnson, Vice President of Learning & Development Research at Bersin by Deloitte.
LeadingEdge was designed with mobile learners in mind, so while the experience is optimized for mobile, learners can access, organize and share content from any device and any location with the same seamless experience.
