Through a blend of learning methodologies, the R&D Learning Curriculum delivers educational solutions via e-learning, instructor-led courses, and offerings from strategic external partnershipsto help our associates cultivate their careers and reach their fullest potential.
A Focused Curriculum
Alcon R&D believes that associate development is a combination of job experience, mentoring and coaching, and formal education and learning. The results-based approach of the R&D Learning Curriculum supports Alcon R&D objectives by focusing on four tracks:
Alcon R&D utilizes a Core Team approach to product development. We help associates better understand how to successfully contribute and manage projects within a team environment, while also teaching them how to effectively lead both cross-functional and functional teams.
Associates can further their knowledge and skills with respect to the science of the eye, while also learning the foundational sciences of R&D.
In addition to understanding the R&D strategy, we arm our associates with the knowledge needed to implement the necessary processes and tools to support Alcon’s business strategy and objectives.
Understanding the scope and complexity of the regulations governing our industry is an integral part of R&D. We are committed to the safety, efficacy and quality of all of our products, and work to ensure we meet stringent internal safety standards, as well as those required by regulatory agencies globally.
