What challenges to you currently face?
How do we measure outcomes?
Managerial barriers – business rules and attitudes
Trainer capability and attitude
Content not perceived to have value
No protected learning time
Miss selling by managers ( mandated learning as interesting)
Enagement with learning
No senior management buy in or lead by example
Not integrated into other offerings
Bad experiences in past
Please see examples in resources (last page) of how other
organisations have addressed some of these issues
Greatest supporters across different forces included Project managers, in force learning mentors, chief officers, area commanders, trainers, learners
This same list also appeared in other forces as the greatest gatekeepers
Via the elearning advisory group - can you start to encourage peer to peer engagement across forces eg get an engaged chief officer to create a podcast interview that can be used with others etc
Sponsors within the force
Local learning ChampionsEngaging Stakeholders – Who and why?
Own specific initiatives
Incorporate learning as part of solution
Influence management & define success

Participate in training
Motivate, engage and support
Ensure local relevance
Examples provided – using management to help define outcomes at the beginning
so that they are engaged before you get to demonstrating value
Use learners in design process
Use pilot evidence (from peers) to engage others in the main role out
Review your last pieces of communication to your audience
( email, promotion web site etc)
Put a red line through any jargon - what are you left with?
( learning jargon or technology jargon)
