How AutoNation is Driving Real Results with New Sales Training
Wednesday, July 17th, 1:45 - 2:45 Eastern

Interpersonal skills often take a back seat to more focused business-process training in e-learning. Can e-learning help produce measurable improvement in interpersonal skills without a large investment in classroom time?

Participants in this case-study session will learn how a two-day ILT course was transformed into a blended learning curriculum using highly interactive, scenario-based e-learning modules that reduced classroom time by 50 percent. Using the Successive Approximation Model (SAM) process for development, the company created customer negotiation simulations for sales associates, allowing them to practice techniques in a safe environment as often as they needed. You’ll learn how the company piloted and measured specific business-performance metric outcomes and how they compared with a control group, as well as learning about the adoption of the new learning methods by the sales team.

Attendees will learn how:

  • to effectively use e-learning for soft-skill development.
  • to overcome skepticism from leadership, trainers and learners.
  • to measure business outcomes from soft-skill training.
  • the SAM process iterative approach for development helped produce these results.

Presented by:

Kenneth Gregson, Senior Director, Variable Operations Learning & Performance – AutoNation
