Sunder Ramachandran


I have been in the enterprise learning space for 12 years with a blend of entrepreneurial & mainstream corporate experience. I have headed the learning function for organisations in Pharmaceutical, BFSI & ITES, led cross-cultural teams, set up learning COEs from ground up, managed learning budgets & led implementation of enterprise wide ‘learning technology’ projects.

I am passionate about using technology for learning, social learning & the possibilities of a connected enterprise. My articles on workplace learning have appeared in print & digital media including Economic Times, Times Ascent, Hindu Business Line, People Matters magazine,,, and National HRD Newsletter.

I usually have more questions than answers and believe that learning is only an ingredient and people don’t care about the ingredients if the dish does not turn out well. My role as I see it, is to align people, processes & technology within the learning function to solve business problems. Through my blog, I reflect on how learning & talent management professionals can respond to this mobile & cloud first world. Things I do well include:

  • Establish & scale learning COEs
    L&D strategy for virtual work environment
    Building learning journeys that are Social, Gamified & Mobile first
    Building & managing learning communities
    Program management of learning tracks & internal marketing of learning solutions
    Managing distributed training teams & facilitator development
