Symposium is available at:


Last week, Skillsoft announced the availability of a new infographic developed with  Chief
Learning Officer (CLO)
magazine that celebrates the publication’s 10th
anniversary and illustrates the evolution of learning and development during
the past century. Skillsoft, and CLO designed the infographic to provide readers
with a visual tool that highlights key moments and trends in the history of business
learning, training and development. The infographic demonstrates how technology has caused a shift toward
collaborative social learning and reform of traditional models.

infographic highlights many industry milestones, beginning in 1914 when manufacturers became among the first to develop internal
training functions. It also includes when corporate universities were
developed, the naming of the first chief learning officer and the introduction
of the first academic program to focus on chief learning officers – a graduate
degree in organizational learning.
