About
As organizations plan for 2022, they must ensure their employees and partners are skilled in a cloud-centric world. Lots of ink is spilled on the essential need to do this, but how is it done successfully? There now is a greater understanding of how people learn – especially in workplace settings. “Challenge-centric learning” is emerging as an innovative alternative, where learners receive the hands-on experience configuring, scaling, and troubleshooting any real-world cloud situations that they need -- rather than lean-back presentations that have been proven to fail time and again.

Join this VB Live event to learn how organizations can apply a challenge-centric learning mindset across many technology stacks and scenarios to get more from your learning programs. And access learning in a timely manner while staying under budget.
