A recent article on Training Industry.com addressed predictions in training for 2011. One of the predictions was the role of learning leader shifting from being a program manager to a solution architect. As opposed to the training manager managing, he or she may well become a “Learning Architect” who “designs innovative approaches for employees to access knowledge, when they need it, in relevant chunks, no matter where they are.”
Here’s how Team Powered Success can help those Learning Architects.
The basic Team Powered Success program can provide a team with the essential tolls within a 12-hour period; usually the team meets weekly for one hour and then implements what they have learned, “off site,” as it were.
However, the basic program can be separated into the aforementioned “chunks.” Here’s how. Every team we work with takes the Team Success Survey at least twice during the program: once early on and again before the program concludes. The purpose is to show the team the progress they have made. We offer the Survey free to prospective clients.
When they have completed the survey (anonymously), we send them a Summary Report and suggest specific actions to move their team through the stages of team development. [As shown on the sample page above, of the five members of this team only three agreed with the question. Sounds like grounds for discussion!]
They can select the entire program or select recommended “chunks” depending upon their needs and available time. We can use the essential tools within Team Powered Success to help teams find solution, as the article suggests, “not in event form, but in the form of knowledge objects.”
