A Letter From the CEO
As we round out the first decade of the 21st century, the global financial situation remains
tenuous. Organizations continue to try and do more with less, and there is an increased
demand for higher-level skills in strategic leadership, Project and Program Management,
Business Analysis, Risk Management, Information Technology and Lean Six Sigma.
Welcome to IIL’s 2011 Learning Catalogue!
While many economists are hopeful that we will see some signs of recovery in 2011, the job
market remains more competitive than ever. Building on your knowledge and “polishing
your edge” are now not only critical to success… they are critical to survival.
In spite of economic difficulties, new technologies continue to change not only the way we work, play and
socialize, but also the ways in which we plan, learn and share ideas. The 193% increase in e-book sales from
2009 to 2010 and record numbers of tablets, smartphones and 4G devices are just a few signs of the progressive
migration, across industries, toward the virtual space.
More and more, learning is taking place virtually, globally and collaboratively. People all over the world are
connecting online and learning through virtual communities, peer-to-peer networks and social media platforms.
In anticipation of future learning trends - and in response to our customers’ needs - IIL has doubled our focus on
our Virtual Classroom offerings and self-paced on-demand learning products. We have enhanced our Learning
Management System to make it more participatory and enable you to better define your development goals and
track your progress.
