Nestlé USA pilots communities of practice on Q2Learning platform

Falls Church, Virginia, USA. Q2Learning announced this week that Nestlé USA will use the xPERT eCampus platform to pilot community of practice (CoP) sites for several small workgroups within Nestlé University.

The company says initial CoPs will focus on topics of interest in blended learning, including ways in which Nestlé can leverage blended learning to support company-wide initiatives such as leadership and safety training.

Tim Lybarger, Manager, training & development, at Nestlé University said: "We're really pleased to be working with Q2Learning as we try this new enabler of virtual communities and collaborative learning.

"We have great hopes of improving both the efficiency and the quality of our global team initiatives. Q2Learning has provided the kind of support that has been essential in helping us navigate the complexities of the new technologies and approaches."

Bill Bruck, lead solutions architect at Q2Learning, said: "Like so many other organisations we work with, Nestlé is looking at ways that it can leverage technology to support the strategic goals of the company.

"We're excited to be a part of their exploration and are looking forward to partnering with them as they move forward with implementing communities of practice and blended learning initiatives."
