Resources

We’ve been doing learning and development for what seems like ages. In the past 27 years we’ve been fortunate to work with – and learn from – some pretty smart folk. Here you can find a series of articles that capture some of the things we’ve learned. We’re sharing people.

Towards Total Training

Lots of companies describe themselves as learning organisations but often the initiatives they take don’t go far enough to change behaviour. Towards Total Training outlines a series of activities which – when linked together – help people to do things differently and do different things. 

Forget Social, think Shopping – Building a Transactional Network

Lots of learning technology companies have embraced social media. Enabling learners and employees to share their knowledge with others seems like the holy grail of training and with widely available platforms like Facebook, it’s suddenly so simple. So why do so many social media-style platforms for learning fall flat, with ordinary bods so reluctant to post anything at all? Perhaps we’re trying to apply the wrong model. Maybe the way shopping sites work is a more useful way of using web 2.0 than ‘liking’ something on facebook. Click here to pay with a Tweet or a Facebook mention

We can all give up – 70:20:10 has arrived

It would appear we learn most from our experience in the workplace. Are trainers now redundant? Is the classroom a luxury we can no longer afford? The rise of popularity of the 70:20:10 model suggests there’s scientific proof that we’ve been getting it wrong all these years. But closer examination shows that that the original concept requires more traditional training inputs not fewer. The quick fix may be less rapid than we’d like to believe. Here’s how to use 70:20:10 correctly.

The learnworks Manifesto

learnworks is driven by some core values about what makes learning and development work. Our manifesto outlines those values.  It describes what we believe in in relation to workplace learning and development.

We think most of this is common sense – it’s just that sometimes sense isn’t all that common. If you share our beliefs and values, get in touch and let’s see how we can work together.
