#TLDCast Open Forum with Brent Schlenker

Today was an open forum as everyone makes their annual journey to DevLearn in Las Vegas. Because of our amazing community, we landed on a great topic. Jonathan Rock wanted to know how others learned from other departments in the business. We quickly landed on marketing as the department with the most in common with the digital content creation of a modern training organization. And the concept of a “Brief” in marketing can easily be applied to L&D and helpful in gathering the information we need to create the “story” that most accurately reflects what the learning solution should be.

We also discussed translation issues in L&D as Marco Faccini is currently joining us while experiencing an event in China.
