HIGH PERFORMANCE LEARNING JOURNEYS ®
Learning is easy
Doing is tough
Learning and development leaders have been barraged for years with a distressing truth: Training does not hit the mark. The October 2016 issue of Harvard Business Review provides a thoroughly researched article that concludes “For the most part, learning does not lead to better organizational performance, because people soon revert to their old ways of doing things.” (Beer, Finnstrom & Schrader, 2016).
Previous research on training effectiveness, and our dozens of impact evaluation studies over the past 30 years, indicate that only about 20% of training “sticks” in improved job performance of managers and leaders. Leaving 80% to scrap. For too long L&D has focused on developing methods and techniques to improve the learning situation, but what about the “doing” situation – the performance environment? After a traditional training we leave the participants to fend for themselves, but when we support them better and more frequently there is a big difference in driving desired business outcomes.
Learning journey designs are the inevitable future for learning and development
More than ever, organizations rely on training to support the execution of strategy and change. At the same time, most training initiatives are too “event” based and do not engage learners in a meaningful and effective performance improvement process. Basically there are two routes for training to go from here – step up or step down.– High Performance Learning Journeys ® is the way to go. And if you want to contribute to business success, it is the only option
Take responsibility for application from training and use methods that bridge the gap between learning and doing.
Just keep on trying to make your ineffective training “events” cheaper and easier to access.
