  • Optimizing Leadership Training and Development by Leveraging Learning Science Recorded: Sep 6 2018 40 mins
    Todd Maddox, Ph.D.
    By attending this talk, you can bring back to your organization a better understanding of how psychology and brain science can be leveraged to provide a roadmap for successfully training leaders and managers at all levels. In this era of digital transformation, where organizations rely increasingly on cross-functional and deeply collaborative teams, leadership is becoming more distributed and employees are taking on leadership roles much earlier in their careers. Combine this with some of the recent corporate crises (#metoo, unconscious bias, discrimination) and effective leadership training becomes even more important. The overriding aim of this talk is to examine leadership training and development from a learning science perspective—the marriage of psychology and brain science—and to identify procedures that optimize leadership training.
  • The Adoption Gap in Learning: How Brain Science Can Bridge the Divide Recorded: Jun 28 2018 36 mins
    Todd Maddox, Ph.D
    All too often, L&D vendors offer a plethora of tools with no guidance on when to use which tools. The result: weak adoption and sub-optimal learning and performance with no clear path forward. This talk briefly reviews the plethora of exciting new technologies on the L&D market, the psychology and brain science of learning, and a set of best practices for mapping these technologies onto representative learning problems.

    First, we start with a quick tour of the array of technologies available to L&D professional. Next, we offer a primer on the psychology and brain science of learning and discover the multiple distinct learning systems that have evolved in the brain to learn different skills. We conclude by providing an example of an effective mapping from learning tools to learning problem that derives from the learning science.

    By attending this talk, you can bring back to your organization a better understanding of how psychology and brain science can be leveraged to provide a roadmap for successfully training employees.

  • Data and Analytic Strategies for Developing Ethical IT Recorded: Jan 30 2018 48 mins
    Hyoun Park
    Suggested audience: CIO, Enterprise Architects, Data Managers, Analytics Managers, Data Scientists

    IT is broken. Bad data assumptions, legacy technology, poor business decisions, and weak IT management have changed IT from a superstar to a second-rate department that struggles to maintain its seat at the CEO's table.

    With AI, personal data, & business ethics all in ascendence, the need for ethical IT policies has never been greater. Otherwise, companies risk building services and products that fall short of the ethics and trust that they have been given by employees.

    In this webinar, Amalgam Insights explores how current data, BI, analytics, and machine learning technologies threaten ethical IT and provides guidance based on other rules-based frameworks that derive business outcomes, such as the law and corporate legislation.
