G5. Learning and Development for a Mobile-First World: A Case Study in Innovation

For LINGOs, a consortium of human relief and development organizations, mobile training is essential. LINGOs creates learning solutions and initiatives for NGOs around the globe.

Last year, the consortium discovered that non-financial managers who work in remote or developing areas of the global south were often being asked to prepare budgets, manage accounts, interpret financial data, and related tasks—all without training or support.

That led to LINGOs developing a certification program and toolkit of educational resources focused on basic financial management. While face-to-face training and certification test preparation are important pieces of the program, mobile-first training is essential for reaching non-financial managers.

That is an issue many large teams face: How can we build training for any device and deliver it quickly, easily, and consistently to a global workforce? In this talk, Mike Culligan explains how he’s tackling the challenge.
