Episode 1: The Start of Something New

Justin Lombardo on How the CLO Role Started

The chief learning officer role was born out of necessity. Visionary business leaders looked ahead and saw a problem: a future driven by innovation but an organization lacking in the essential skills. So they hired the first CLOs to take up the charge - but their success was never guaranteed. Veteran CLO Justin Lombardo was there at the beginning and recounts what that moment was like and how the role continues to evolve to meet the needs of modern organizations. Plus, Justin and host Mike Prokopeak, editor in chief of Chief Learning Officer, explain exactly why the world needs a CLO podcast.
