Are we missing a HUGE opportunity?
With Bob Mosher
Wednesday, September 11th, 2019
101 Federal Street, #2600
Boston, MA 02110
6:00pm – 8:30pm
Did you know that within the first 48 hours of your employees attending a traditional training or learning event, their knowledge retention drops to 33 percent? Did you also know that research now shows that nearly 80 percent of learning in the workplace takes place informally? So why are training departments still spending the vast majority of their budgets on formal training efforts? Everyday L&D is being pressured more and more to show an ROI, or Return on investment, for the dollars spent in “training”. Performance Support can help us move into the workflow and measure impact in ways training alone can never do. It also has a profound effect on training events, often reducing them by up to half the time needed, while making them even more impactful.
This session will address the methodologies behind Performance Support (learning while doing), and how it can help us have a different level of conversation with those we serve and help us influence the effectiveness of the business in remarkable ways!
In the session you will learn:
About the Presenter:
- What are the 5 Moments of Learning Need;
- What Performance Support is: methodologies and concepts;
- What does Performance Support Look Like relative designing a 5 Moments of need solution;
- What are the design considerations when integrating Performance Support into an existing learning approach;
- How Learning Groups interact with the enterprise when they begin providing Performance Support solutions.
