Are you prepared to face the potential disruptors to your learning business? Or – even better – are you positioning your organization to be the next big disruptor of your market?
Return guest Tom Morrison, CEO of Metal Treating Institute (MTI), is a highly-sought after keynote speaker, and author of multiple books, including most recently, The Dash: Making Sure Your Obituary Won’t Suck. And a key concept that he speaks about is around the idea of “uberization” – a term based on the highly successful market disruptor that we all know, Uber.
In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Jeff talks with Tom about the concept of uberization including how it applies to learning businesses and how to avoid being “uberized”. He also talks about what MTI is doing with their highly successful e-learning and certificate programs to solidify their niche in the market.
