Don't Panic - Fast Track Your Learning! Enabling Success With Mobile Technology.


Today, it is more common than ever to have to reposition strategies and pivot learning programs to accommodate quick shifts in business. Don't Panic! A mobile learning strategy is your answer to always be as nimble as your business demands and the life sciences environment dictates. This session walks you through how to implement a complete mobile technology solution to easily fast track a new training program, onboard new hires and support an existing workforce across regions in a highly-fluid environment. Case in point, emerging biotech companies awaiting FDA approvals are suddenly fast-tracked, shifting entire business strategies. Several key training and onboarding programs at the center of this challenge will be explored for their design and execution, along with subsequent adjustments, successes and surprise outcomes.

As (Further) Background for the Session:

With business moving quickly today, particularly in the life sciences, it is imperative that learning and development programs mirror the same rapid pace. Thus, real-world use cases from key emerging biotech firms will come into play, as they are routinely at the forefront of this challenge. Specifically, these pharmaceutical houses had new therapies that quickly became fast-tracked by the FDA - meaning approvals and product launches became imminent. However, an exact timetable remained unknown, which created a unique training challenge.

Step-by-step processes and best practices to fast track these new hire and sales training programs using mobile technology will be explored, along with showcasing next steps and how they pivoted into success stories.
