The Learning Council Chapter Tool documents decisions made regarding the purpose, membership, structure, and standing agenda items for a governance council made up of business and HR leaders that guide the direction, content, programming, and decision-making of the learning and development function. It is designed to both communicate and clarify the "who, what, and when" of the council as it meets to provide leadership and business input into the ongoing operations of the function.

How to use this tool

After a learning council has been chartered with members identified, the council uses the tool during its initial meeting to guide the discussion and decisions regarding the governance of the council itself. It serves as a single document that captures all significant decisions regarding how a committee of leaders will oversee and guide this business-aligned learning and development function.
