by Amos, Grace E., M.S., Pepperdine University, 2018, 76; 10839715
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to explore perceptions about the future of the Chief Learning Officer (CLO) role in the corporate organization from the perspective of current and former CLOs. For this study, Chief Learning Officer is defined as the top leadership role held in a corporate organization that oversees the functions of learning and development, talent development, and/or training. This study summarizes data collected through semi-structured interviews with ten CLOs from a variety of countries, industries, and company sizes. Overall, four key themes emerged from the study: 1) a perceived trajectory of the CLO role, 2) opinions about the CLO title, 3) specific approaches to driving learning strategy, and 4) characterizations of the alignment with human resources. Suggestions for practical and scholarly implications are provided.
