Managers play an important role in a team’s learning initiatives.
With the introduction of a dashboard, managers can keep track of learning activities and the performance of their respective teams.
Managers can view the summary of learning activities that the team undertakes in a specified time period. Senior Managers can even view the team structure and compare how different teams perform.
Managers now see a Compliance dashboard that details the team’s overall compliance status. Managers can view learners who are non-compliant in selected learning objects. They can also identify those learners whose compliance deadlines are close.
With the new Dashboard managers can now view the top 5 skills in their respective teams. This gives them an understanding of the expertise levels of the team. And they can now identify employees talented in certain skills. Managers can also drive learning activities aimed at a set of skills. They can use the Adobe Learning Manager Skill Tracker to set up goals, forecast skill completion and suggest recommendations.
Managers will immediately see the Manager dashboard when they log in.
