Engaging Learning Interventions

Learning And Development Strategy

​A world-class learning strategy is about more than just great onboarding or leadership training; it's about seeing the opportunity to improve talent retention by providing growth opportunities. It's about increasing trust and employee engagement through targeted learning interventions. It's about thoughtfully partnering with external vendors to make your job easier.

Learning and Development is not only needed to onboard new hires or to keep your team trained on new systems and processes or develop new and existing senior staff in the skill of leadership. 

Learning and Development Strategy

Planning and developing learning interventions can put a substantial strain on your organization. ​Not sure where to start? Not sure what you need? Let's talk.

Providing your teams with opportunities to continuously grow and advance can be a key to staff loyalty, increased trust and greater profitability.

Planning and developing learning interventions can put a substantial strain on your organization. Where do you start? What do you need to develop versus where are you able to purchase off-the-shelf training programs or learning content?

Our Methodology

We start with a comprehensive gap analysis and Action Planning exercise, and then work together to identify your key training needs. Part of this process includes identifying where a job aid or environmental change might be more efficient than training (and save you money!).

​Then we look at options for how to best provide the training. This might include curating content, accessing asset libraries, delivering live group programs, or custom designing training solutions to suit your needs.

Following a thorough Gap Analysis and Action Planning exercise, we help you identify training needs. We will also identify where less expensive environmental changes or development of job aids can do the trick for you.

Learning and Development Consulting

We ​work with your internal stakeholders, including training teams, human resources, and subject matter experts (SMEs) to find and deliver the best solutions that meet your budget and timeline. 

Experience has shown that hiring external help can deliver projects faster and more effectively. As an external consultant we are removed from your day-to-day business activities and focus on the business need. This accelerates the process, adds a neutral perspective to the identification of your gaps and provides easily overlooked solutions that can save you time and money.

Director Education, Vision Critical

Petra Mayer joined our training team to kickstart the development of a comprehensive certification program. She set up the project fundamentals, undertook a benchmarking study and needs analysis, followed by the instructional design of a program syllabus for 7 courses. Petra then supported our team in the development of our pilot eLearning course, including scripting and lesson creation. She was paramount in our successful launch of the pilot program and the roadmap for our training team to roll out the remaining courses of the certification program. Petra never takes her eye off the overall goal while maintaining full attention to detail. She provided us with strategic direction as well as showed great flexibility to adapt scope and approach in our fast-changing environment as a technology provider.
