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.

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. Some sixty 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.

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.

Training For the Worst

Training Survey Says…

When asked what type of training is most effective for soft skills training in areas such as communication, management, and leadership, more than 80 percent of respondents to an American Management Association survey at the Training 2015 Conference & Expo stated that classroom training, including corporate and open-enrollment instructor-led training, was more effective than virtual training.

Bouncing Back

Seems like Mother Nature is on a rampage lately. From flooding rains and stultifying heat to destructive tornadoes and hurricanes and gale-force winds, just about every country in the world has been subject to her wrath. The question is: How prepared are we to deal with these and other disasters both personally and professionally? And how quickly can we bounce back?

L&D Best Practices: March/April 2015

Training magazine taps 2015 Training Top 125 winners and Top 10 Hall of Famers to provide their learning and development best practices in each issue. Here, we look at Microchip Technology Inc.’s strategy for cultural integration following acquisitions.

Top 10 Hall of Fame Outstanding Training Initiatives (March/April 2015)

Each year, Training magazine requires all Training Top 10 Hall of Famers to submit an Outstanding Training Initiative that is shared with our readers in a print issue. Here are the details of KPMG LLP’s Tax Training Redesign and The Ritz-Carlton Leadership Center’s Advisory Services for Hospitals submissions.

A Whole New LMS World

Many current learning management systems don't play well with others. Next-generation learning platforms are designed with consolidation and integration in mind to allow you to keep what you want, and let go of what you don't.

Use It or Lose It?

You might have found just the right image, song, or article to incorporate into your training program, but do you have the right to use it? Being familiar with copyright law is key.

Brand Moments

Everyday life provides many opportunities to build our personal brands through simple acts. But each act creates an impression in the mind of another, and our value to them is either strengthened or diminished.

What Does Credibility Mean to You?

What credibility really means to you could be viewed differently based upon your own standards and the cultural environment that surrounds you.

Grand Master Certification at La Quinta Holdings

The certification drives customer and employee satisfaction and boils down to what the organization does every day as hotel managers and operators. With everything in its place, it is easier for the team to find supplies and makes it easier for them to do their jobs—ultimately taking better care of guests.

Becoming Border Savvy in a Borderless World

It used to be that our organizations would establish borderlines for us in organization charts and strictly demarcated job descriptions. But in organizations seeking to be competitive in a much more complex and dynamic business environment, we each are called upon to construct, deconstruct, and reconstruct boundaries that serve the organization’s purpose at a particular time.

Are Your Employees Unhappy? Here’s How Technology Can Help

Training can provide a chance to engage employees more closely in the organization while giving them greater feedback on what they do. Technology plays a key role as employers turn to the use of corporate intranets, which often combine elements of popular social networks so that workers feel more in touch with their colleagues.

Can Trainers Help Simplify Business Processes?

The tendency to complicate, rather than simplify, relates to corporate culture, and corporate culture usually begins getting ingrained in new employees as soon as they’re hired.
