Purchasing Learning Technologies

Given that trainers are in the education business, how “educated” are we about one of our most significant purchases: technologies for learning?

Continuing Training magazine's exploration of awareness of learning technologies, we look at survey results on how trainers prepare for and participate in the purchasing process.

Training For the Worst

Emergencies happen. They can happen to anyone, anywhere, any time. Every week, somewhere in the world, there is an extreme weather event. Sometimes Mother Nature just rises up, and there you are in the middle of an unavoidable situation. Some situations are more predictable than others.

Disasters - whether manmade or the result of nature - are bound to occur, no matter how finely tuned a business is. Resilience training is key to making people more capable of bouncing back quicker and emerging stronger from these shocks and stresses.

Content Under Pressure

Game 7 of the World Series. Home team is down by one run, with a runner on third. Bottom of the ninth. Two outs. Two strikes. A bead of sweat trickles down the batter’s cheek. He tightens his grip on the bat and shifts his stance slightly. His eyes narrow. Ninety feet away, the pitcher stares in, then winds up, leg kicking high.

Today's employees often feel like they work in a pressure cooker that is ready to explode at any given moment. Some organizations are implementing training programs to help their employees better manage that pressure and improve their performance in the process.

Content Under Pressure

A Vicious Circle

By curbing the inclination to act impulsively, you can improve relationships and avoid entering the stress/rudeness vicious circle. 
 

Try Commandments Instead of Goals

Resolutions—goals and intentions—are important. But there’s an implied sense of “optional” in them. Instead, here are 10 commandments I’d like to live by.

Cracking the Successful Corporate MOOC

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) must be well tailored to company objectives, tightly embedded in the corporate context, and designed with learner engagement and motivation specifically in mind. 

Training Managers to Be Coaches

A successful coach helps employees to find solutions themselves, which can improve their performance and free managers to focus more on their own jobs.

Focus on Hong Kong

When delivering business training in Hong Kong, the key is to provide the theoretical concept briefly, followed by plenty of practical application and examples.

Ensure Safety First

Online safety training— provided in an employee’s native language and with localized content— is key to creating a successful safety culture in a global organization.

Training Agile at Scale

Few organizations have transformed from traditional software development methods to Agile on the holistic scale undertaken by PayPal. Training played a key role in accelerating transformation success.

Go Beyond Buzzwords

Make your communication count—start by fact-checking your statements and steering clear of jargon.

The Ethics of Training Customer Service

The trust of a customer (a.k.a., learner) starts with the trustworthiness of the service provider (a.k.a., trainer). Trust is as vital to acquiring competence as it is to buying goods and services.

Sticky Notes: Resource Planning 101

In the business of training, like every business, competition for limited resources is fierce nowadays. That makes good ongoing resource planning more important than ever. There are several steps to keep in mind.
