David James is Chief Learning Officer at Looop, where he helps businesses use a data-driven approach to solving business problems with Learning and Development.

In this episode, David argues how using data and a resource-based approach to supporting employees can help the traditional L&D function evolve in response to the demands of the digital age.

The key Ding! moments from this podcast are:

  • The danger of L&D in organisations being simply a conga, where everyone has a great time dancing but where the development isn’t data-driven;
  • The importance of providing learning opportunities that people actually need, not those that the organisation wants them to have;
  • The need to remain focused on the intended outcome of development, and make the ‘learning’ as timely and efficient as possible, and
  • The value of making the culture of an organisation visible to employees through the use of digital resources.
