Most of us have the technology capability in our living rooms to watch a whole season’s worth of TV shows in one day and to watch other shows whenever we like via on-demand channels and our DVRs.

We watch TV programs sans commercials “on demand” and have instant access to information 24/7 via the Web. Today’s employees want that same flexibility when it comes to training.

Four Principles for Global Leaders

Teaching Senior Leaders the Dynamics of Derailment

Derailment is a phenomenon all too common in organizations. Highly successful middle managers are identified as having potential to move up and eventually take on senior-level positions. Yet there are those who don’t live up to that assessment. They plateau below expected levels of achievement, or they reach higher levels only to fail, resulting in being demoted or fired.

Avanade’s Skill Family Revitalization

Next-Generation Learning Content Strategies

Today’s employee learning and development initiatives need to shift from preparing employees to solve known problems, to preparing employees to fill jobs that don’t exist yet. How do we do that? We have to rethink learning content in order to shift the strategic focus of employee development to reflect the broad influences of demographics, technology, behaviors, and future needs of both employees and the organization.

Think Ethics Training Has to Be Boring? Think Again

Humor does not interfere with your ability to educate. The same techniques that keep people watching a TV show after they really should be going to bed can be used to make people focus on your training longer than they otherwise would.
