Making learning ‘stick’...
Training is a major investment for your business – so it needs to deliver concrete business benefits and real performance improvement.
However good a training programme is though, we all know that when the pressure is on it is difficult for people to apply that learning back at work.
Even when we are enthused and motivated by great training and with the best intentions to try out new approaches, the realities of day-to-day business challenges can get in the way.
So – how do we get new skills to stick and measure the results? Well research* suggests we should be investing more in follow-up activities…
*Dr. Brent Peterson, CEO of The Work Itself
So, we have designed PROMPT! – a multi-lingual, web-based tool, available via smartphones, tablets and PCs which supports both participants and their managers in making learning stick by…
- Allowing participants to log SMART development goals and action plans directly into a friendly web-based system (eg during a workshop or following a performance review) using a PC, tablet or smartphone
- Automatically ‘prompting’ participants on a regular basis to review their plans and update their progress
- Providing the opportunity to seek/offer online feedback and coaching – especially useful if people need more help, new ideas or simply encouragement!
- Accessing online pre-work, training materials and hints and tips via a Resource Library – encouraging use of the system as a single source of learning material
- Allowing individuals to share success stories and training companies to post hints and tips using PROMPT directly or via Twitter, Linked-In and other social media tools
- Evaluating the impact of their actions for themselves, their teams and the overall business
- Evaluating the positive impact of individual goal progress for themselves, their teams and the overall business
- Providing management reporting so that the business can readily evaluate the impact of the training without complex and time consuming processes and identify the specific ROI of any training activity
PROMPT! is a web based tool hosted on a secure Greenbank server, so there is no software installation and no internal IT setup or support required. It can be tailored to your specific organisational needs and be accessible 24/7 requiring only a web browser and internet connection to work.
