ASTD no more
MAY 8, 2014
The American Society for Training and Development has ceased to exist. In 1947, it came to life as the American Society of Training Directors. That left out lower-level trainers so development replaced directors in a name change and the doors were opened to everyone in the training business. Vendors of packaged training courses filled ASTD’s exhibit halls.

Review of ASTD International Trade Expo
MAY 11, 2012
With great anticipation I entered the huge expo at ASTD International show earlier this week. In the past this show has been heavily geared to instructor led training in the corporate space. If you think they used the ASTD app and wrote down some notes, I think you would be surprised. would love to see a survey from ASTD sent one week after the show to attendees asking them what vendors they visited online with specific requirements that they did so, without visiting the ASTD app, ASTD online site showing the exhibitors and their web sites and the heavy book.
ASTD International Conference Day 1 Wrap-Up
MAY 20, 2013
Welcome one and all to the wrap up of the ASTD international conference and expo. It was an exciting first day, with lots of vendors hitting the entire training spectrum. Ideal for sales training and point of sales. Why hasn’t ASTD figured out how to do things right. Once again, ASTD dropped the ball. Apparently there must be a huge demand for scalping ASTD badges or hood winking ASTD for access into their show. If I could give ASTD a grade it would be a massive F. First day cool product of the show. Leapfactor. Frustration Factor.

Stop Evaluating Training!
MAY 2, 2013
Proving the effectiveness of training and showing ROI is no walk in the park and still keeps L&D up at night. Kirkpatrick’s evaluation model has long been the holy grail of training effectiveness measurement to businesses. The key message from his talk was to Stop Evaluating Training the way we currently tend to. The rest is ‘unrealized value’ of training.

Three Great Takeaways from ASTD 2012

When I registered for the ASTD International Conference & Expo 2012 over a month ago, I planned to write a recap post for two reasons: First, it’s a chance to share what I learned so people who couldn’t attend might learn something from my experience.

When Instructor-Led Training is No Longer a Sustainable Model
MARCH 26, 2013
We have tons of technology at our disposal, but the majority of companies still use some form of instructor led training (ILT) — 59.4% to be exact, according to the 2012 ASTD State of the Industry report. Limited time available for employees to complete training. Employees in most organizations are getting an average of 32 to 40 hours of total training time per year.

Why Blended Learning Is Really Just Blended Training
MARCH 20, 2012
Blended learning is a hot phrase in the training world, and it usually refers to a mixing of traditional face-to-face classroom facilitation with computer-based modules — usually self-paced online training. Blended learning extends training beyond a single “event.”. 2. Blended learning saves money by reducing the travel and work-stoppage costs of classroom training.
What Will Corporate Learners Remember from your Training?
MAY 5, 2014
Here is Part 1: How confident are you that learners really remember what they learn from training delivered in your organization? Sometimes the goal of training is not about changing learners’ knowledge or skill. Instead the goal is to verify that learners completed the training. In these instances, you may equate course completion with “ef- fective training.”

Back for another installment of the ASTD international trade show. In this amazing episode we find out that not all mobile devices are really mobile (according to a vendor), the new six letter word is Tin Can, mobile only products still exist, my game is your game and ASTD did not offer a breakfast for us.

The 0% Solution to Learning
The Peformance Improvement
FEBRUARY 22, 2012
In this kind of culture, formal classroom training is superfluous. Brinkerhoff makes this point in his writing about measuring the contribution that training makes to learning and performance improvement. He argues that the isolation score, that indicator of how much training contributes to performance results, should be zero. Training is always an expensive solution.
