DESCRIPTIONThe #1 issue facing businesses is a need to innovate. Innovation is fundamentally about learning and how to keep your rate of learning (as individuals and as organizations) greater than the rate of change and greater than your competition. We think (and research supports this) that it is time for a "Paradigm Shift" in talent development & learning. The need for a strategic and systematic approach to talent development is already underway in many high performing organizations - are you ready for these sweeping, even disruptive trends? This presentation covers the latest trends and what we see as "next" practices emerging and how we, at the Business Learning Institute are working to help CPA firms, corporations, government and non-profits with a new approach to talent development and learning designed to get two things - business results and engaged employees who are willing to give you their discretionary efforts!

Innovation = Agile Learning
The right talent at the right time with the right
• Career Path (Ladder) • Competency-based Learning • Curriculum • Compliance Tracking for CPAs • Content – world-class Technical &
Leadership Courses in multiple formats • Context – Line of sight to organization
vision, mission, strategy & culture
Our approach - The Six C’s
Curriculum design by BLI and AICPA using Top 5 Competencies for future from CPA Horizons research and job levels from the BLI “Bounce” Model.
Leadership and Communications were combined and the 5th category
expanded to include practice specialties for firms and functional
areas for corporate.
Examples would include: Corporate Accounting, FP&A, divisional
reporting, shared services, etc. CPA Firms would have audit, tax,
These technical areas would have specific curriculums designed to
meet their specific technical competency needs.
Context - I2a: Insight to Action Strategic Thinking Process
Your Competitive Advantage “It is hard to plan for the long-term future when you don’t know what is going to happen five minutes from now. Today, a competitive edge based solely on material advantage is thin and temporary; the edge quickly becomes the margin. The ability to define the edge, and the ultimate competitive advantage, is found in the smarts, heart and ingenuity of your people. That’s your powerhouse. Tap that, train it, focus it and mobilize it; now you’ve engaged a network and inspired a sustainable shift.
Engagement – Alignment - Commitment
How can we help you keep your L>C?
• Strategy & Alignment • Curriculum tied to strategy • I2a Leadership Academy • BLI Leadership Express - on-
demand leadership support • Social learning In a period of rapid change and
increasing complexity, the winners will be those organizations who can keep their rate of learning greater than the rate of change
and greater than their competition. – Tom Hood
