Deep Needs Analysis
Highly effective instructional design begins with thoughtful, deep needs analysis. Once we have absorbed all we can about your organization, your industry, your learners and their environment, we build upon our knowledge of adult learning and the wisdom of renowned management thinkers to craft your customized program.
Relevant, Engaging Material
We provide participants with relevant activities and ample opportunity for reflection and discussion. Materials, examples, and scenarios will be based on the unique challenges faced by your learners. We follow a number of well-proven design principles intended to boost retention. Our overarching strategy is to follow the maxim:
“Hear it, see it, discuss it, do it.”
A Mix that Works for You
Your program will include a mix of methods and media that fits your learners well. It may include in-class, online, webinar, networking, video, podcast, resource hub, and more. Each instructor-led program includes a facilitator guide, PowerPoint presentation and participant materials, all designed and developed by our expert learning professionals. Our eLearning programs will include all the scenario-based interactivity, games, quizzes, videos and narration that serve the program’s learning objectives and fit your budget.
What to Expect
We work closely with you throughout each instructional design project, clarifying objectives, creating scenarios, confirming tone and ensuring a quality result. With each project, we work to maximize:
- Interest and engagement with the materials
- Retention and application of skills
- Return on investment for your organization
