NovoEd Launches LXI: Free Learning Change Management Certification for Executives

New Virtual Course Helps Leaders Measure the ROI of Workforce Development Initiatives

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — NovoEd, the leading social and collaborative cohort learning platform, welcomes its first executive participants on Oct. 9, 2023 to LXI: Learning Experience Impact — a new, free certification course designed to help leaders demonstrate and promote the business value of workforce development initiatives at their organizations. LXI follows the LXD: Learning Experience Design course by NovoEd, through which more than 35,000 people from six continents have elevated their skills since 2016.

Participants who complete LXI will earn the exclusive free change management credential for learning, HR, and talent professionals available today. “In LXI, executives will gain the ability to apply and measure intentional change management techniques to better instigate efficiency, production, and innovation across their companies,” said Todd Moran, Chief Strategy Officer of NovoEd. “In so doing,” Moran continues, “they will also be equipped to promote the business value of L&D programs to their bosses, to their boards, and to C-level executives outside of the learning suite.”

LXI participants will interact with other leaders from around the world through discussion, feedback, and interactive activities with key industry thought leaders whose work has been featured in The Harvard Business Review, MIT Sloan Management Review, and The Wall Street Journal. The course will also include a live session with Dr. Melvin Smith, Professor in the Department of Organizational Behavior and Faculty Director of Executive Education at the Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University and co-author of the book Helping People Change (with Richard Boyatzis and Ellen Van Oosten).

The two-week experience, which includes 4-7 hours of learning, is compact and easily incorporated into professionals’ schedules using both live and asynchronous instruction. In the course’s capstone project, participants will create a Learning Impact Report designed for learning and non-learning audiences alike with impact metrics that demonstrate the ROI of learning initiatives at their organizations.

“LXI presents a unique opportunity for L&D leaders to cultivate new skills that help them solve their most complex organizational transformation challenges,” says Scott Kinney, NovoEd CEO and Chairman of the Board. “We are excited to welcome our first participants in October and look forward to welcoming many more in future cohorts.”
