Last week, Celeste Villalobos Tahamont, Senior Program Manager at Google, presented at the ASTD Golden Gate Chapter. She gave us a behind-the-scene view of the redesign of EDGE, a leadership training program at Google that serves over 600 levels 3-5 engineers annually. Here are highlights from Celeste’s presentation: Before the redesign
  • EDGE was an off-site, vendor led leadership training program
  • 2,000 engineers have gone through the program since its launch in 2006 through 2009
  • Program contents remained the same from 2006 – 2009 although the business world had changed significantly during that time
  • Used some Googlers facilitators to facilitate the training

Imagine what your leadership development program would look like if you could source most of your contents from the Internet, for free. What? Source content from the Internet? How do I sell this program to my managers and employees if it’s not built by our team in-house or bought from a reputable vendor? Did I hear objections already?? Well, Google did just that. At the ASTD Golden Gate Chapter's program last week, Julie Clow at Google presented to a full room of eager L&D professionals in San Francisco about the future of leadership training–learning in the "cloud".
