How Walmart’s Training Programs Evolved — Chief Learning Officer

An interesting perspective on how Walmart’s new associate training programs were developed:

“Belch was convinced he could create a course that would work for Walmart, though the potential scale of the project was daunting. Walmart wanted STRIVR to create programs that could be run in all 200 learning academies, which are training centers attached to larger Walmart stories. And eventually, the retailer wanted to roll it out to 4,000 locations. ‘It was important that STRIVR be able to scale their solution to meet our needs,’ Kessan says, ‘because we needed to get a handle on training 1.2 million associates.’”
