Lisa and I have made it to the ATD International Conference in Salt Lake City to kick off a weekend and week of learning! We are excited for our full day workshop tomorrow, education sessions and happy hour on Sunday, and book signings and demo session on Monday.

Speaking of demos, we all want to see the LCD model in action. As we head into the tail end of the year (can you believe it?), many of us have either already onboarded a new group of employees or are ramping up for our organizational initiatives for 2022. With many organizations staying remote, or considering a remote/in-person hybrid option, the need for flexible, tailored, learner-centered onboarding programs will remain a top priority in order for organizations to stay competitive.

Last month, I sat down with Ali Knapp, President of Wisetail LMS & LXP, to discuss how to use the Learning Cluster Design model to design onboarding. Here’s a clip from our conversation below:


Some key takeaways from our conversation on onboarding include:

  • Why onboarding is historically a one-and-done event
  • What learners really want out of their onboarding
  • How to target on-the-job behavior change so learners can achieve productivity

We’d love to hear from you – what does your onboarding strategy look like for 2022? What changes are you making to make sure learners get what they want and need out of this experience? Join the conversation on LinkedIn.
