L&D: Chasing Right Outcomes With Wrong Outputs

November 2, 2017 6 comments

One never knows how having a good conversation with a friend and respected colleague like Mark Britz can uncork a brilliant idea for a blog post that I had not planned to write. We were discussing the painfully slow adoption by L&D organizations of the illusive performance paradigm. We both blog and always search for the right words, and that’s when Mark dropped a statement that flung a craving on me to write this blog:

“L&D is chasing the right outcomes with the wrong outputs!” Read more…

Point-of-Work & ADDIE? Say It Ain’t So…

October 30, 2017 13 comments

My recent post  70:20:10 – Myth or Legend? roused a few readers to offer up some really solid comments, and there were a few that left me feeling like I was at a NASCAR race and just shouted “Ford Rules!” Now if you’ve never been to a NASCAR race, let me tell you this about that…every fan has a favorite make of car and nothing shall come between them and their brand…except maybe a case of Budweiser! And so it seems is also true with training design models. And rumor has it that with enough tequila, even the hard-core will abandon ADDIE. But should they? Read more…

7-Right Things Road Map for Sustained Workforce Performance

May 25, 2017 Leave a comment

My most recent post addressed the concept of ACCESS to working knowledge at the Moment of Need and often at the Point-of-Work as being essential to drive tangible business results. In that post I included a list of 7-Right Things that, in essence, provide a road map of sorts to accomplishing holistic discovery and support for intentional design. Unlike the narrow scope of a Training Needs Assessment, tracking down the truth behind the 7-Right Things enables us to include the entirety of the learning and performance ecosystem we should be embracing with our solutions. This practice is critical given that training alone cannot drive performanceonly potential. Read more…

Going Ninja & the Covert Art of Hiding 70:20:10

March 24, 2017 1 comment

After surviving in the L&D profession for over thirty years, I continue to ponder what is it going to take to trip the trigger that deploys the training air bag? C’mon, man! We’ve tried everything known to humans so far…we gamify, we MOOC, we micro, we burst, we space, we go virtual, we go mobile, we asynch, bi-synch, tri-synch, and…and…and it’s still training, and we continue to follow the same road map to achieve the most effective training outcomes using myriad methodologies and technologies. How many times will we endure the collision with a proven reality…yes…a documented…self-inflicted reality…at levels 1 & 2…that training, in and of itself, only drives potential? Read more…

Micro-Learning Is Bigger Than You Think…And Not Just For Learning

December 29, 2016 21 comments

I was recently drawn into a discussion on LinkedIn while trolling one of my groups to comment on a topic “How long should micro-Learning be?” Great question and timely since micro-learning (ML) seems to be receiving a lot of press lately. My answer was simply, “It should be long enough!”  Hey now…that’s better than the stock performance consultant response of “It depends!” But it does depend…it depends on whether you are looking through a training lens or a performance lens.

Are You Just Paying Lip Service to 70:20:10?

<Rant  Alert> yeah…another one…

Now why would anyone ask an accusatory question like that? Likely, no one would, but hey…check out this point of view. It might be a worthy question to ask given the failures of our current Training Paradigm to actually sustain workforce performance.  I mean seriously; based upon how we clutch our current Training Paradigm to our chests like a flotation device in a water landing you’d think workforce performance depends entirely upon our ability to capability. Sorry guys…the only thing we “train-in” is potential. Performance only happens at the Point-of-Work. Read more…

Red Wire/Blue Wire & the Explosive Failure of Training

February 4, 2015 4 comments

The down-lights were all turned on and illuminating the island in the middle of our kitchen when my wife turned the corner and saw me immersed in a creative moment. The red wire had just been inserted into the sausage when she stopped in her tracks; hands firmly planted on her hips with that this-better-be-good look on her face; and she let fly, “What the heck are you doing?” Read more…
