In Partnership With AstraZeneca, Scrimmage Is A 2019-20 ATD Excellence In Practice Award Recipient
Minneapolis, MN - ATD (Association for Talent Development) has announced Scrimmage client and partner in learning, AstraZeneca, as a recipient of the prestigious 2019-2020 Excellence in Practice Award, in the highly-competitive category of Learning Technologies.
AstraZeneca’s oncology training team is being recognized for the success of its OTD mobile learning application (powered by Scrimmage) utilized by the division's US sales personnel. The practice has realized over $2M in cost savings and additional revenues with several new efficiencies, including: streamlined onboarding processes (reduced sales readiness from 15 to 6 weeks); easy administration and backend capabilities (and less reliance on external support, especially for time-critical updates); the facilitation of a best-in-class train-the-trainer and leadership development program; and a continuous, always-on mobile learning instance, reducing the need of costly in-person meetings and trainings by 30% alone.
“This announcement marks the 2nd year in a row that ATD has recognized Scrimmage, its technology and our clients’ successes,” notes Derek Lundsten, CEO of Scrimmage. “We are extremely proud of our team in supporting the unparalleled initiative, endless creativity and tremendous achievements of the entire oncology training team at AstraZeneca.”
“Your teams should be quite proud of its accomplishment! ATD’s Excellence in Practice Awards program,” notes Erin Strider, Senior Project Manager, Communications and Awards for ATD, “recognizes exemplary practices in workplace learning and talent development. This year, we received over 220 entries across 13 categories. Awards are being presented for proven practices that meet a demonstrated need, have appropriate design values, are aligned with other talent strategies - and deliver sustained, clear and measurable results for their organizations.”
The Excellence in Practice Award winners will be recognized at the upcoming ATD2020 International Conference & Exposition in Denver, CO. The ceremony will be held Monday, May 18, 2020.
