Video interview with Ken Taylor, President of Training Industry, Inc.

We recently attended the Training Industry Conference and Expo (TICE) in Raleigh, North Carolina. At the conference, we conducted a number of interviews with learning and development leaders from major organizations to share over the coming weeks on the JPL Learning Solutions video blog.

Training Industry, Inc. produces the conference so attendees can share ideas and explore innovative solutions that drive performance results. As the organization’s president, Ken Taylor is at the center of the industry and has a unique perspective on its current state. He sees investors attracted to businesses focused on closing skill gaps and improving the performance of their customers.

With the changing landscape of training companies, technologies and innovations, corporate executives rely more than ever on their learning and development leaders to help them navigate. Ken has found that when L&D leaders provide solutions that improve performance results, executives are ready to support their efforts.

Cloud technologies are enabling new solutions to fill performance gaps. Innovative learning and development leaders are using them to have a significant impact on performance.

The combination of cloud technologies and big data is also enabling long sought after capabilities. Just as marketers analyze data from customers, Ken sees training leaders analyzing usage data and applying insights from this data to guide future investments.

Through its research and publishing platforms, Training Industry, Inc. has the pulse of the latest in learning and development and performance trends. With its magazine, ongoing webinars, white papers, research and Certified Professional Training Manager program, Ken sees Training Industry continuing to grow in relevance and impact.
