Using Simulations in Corporate Training

Your Training Edge

We know that simulations in highly technical or dangerous situations are necessities, but why should we consider using simulations in various aspects of business training, such as strategy, operations, or even leadership?

Many times, even in our own professional lives, we find that knowledge is fantastic but that execution and application of knowledge is a little further out of reach.

Why You Should Embrace The Gig Economy For Strategic Advantage

EI Design

But managers and HR departments tend to operate from a perspective of fear, convinced that employees can only complete work if they’re supervised in an office. It makes sense to insist that employees all work next to each other on a factory assembly line.

5 Rules for Successful Microlearning

ATD Learning Technologies

It’s almost inevitable that within the next few decades, Clippy will arise from the dead as a miniature virtual assistant projected on your desk in augmented reality. In this near future, Clippy will compete with Siri, Alexa, and Cortana to coach you through difficult challenges at work. Faced with a future in which AI makes work even less stable, what is needed is a wholesale transition from knowledge work to learning work.

Ten Predictions for eLearning 2008

Tony Karrer

Prediction #2 => Virtual Classroom Tools - Meeting Tool + Second Life Lite A medium size Virtual Classroom / Meeting Tool will announce features in 2008 that are not 3D immersive, but that are more like Mii characters in a 2.5D world.

Agile instructional design

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Instructional design was invented around the time of World War II. Starting virtually from scratch, America had to train millions of men to be soldiers and millions of civilians to make ships and armaments. It’s hard to argue with the concept of planning your work, then working your plan.) Sometimes it’s more effective to imbed the knowledge in the work than to plant it in the head of the worker. Why isn’t Sally at work today?

Thriving in the Net-Work Era

Jay Cross

Join us for a brief look back at the pre-training world and some thoughts about what may lay ahead. Before industrialization, work was local or industry meant cottage-industry. About three hundred years ago, work became an organizational matter. Factories require groups of people working together. Clocks measure working hours instead of the sun. Frederick Taylor uses time-and-motion studies to find the one best way to do individual pieces of work.

Reflecting on the first half of 2009

Jay Cross

Articles: Get Out of the Training Business. Any remaining training staff will become mentors, coaches and facilitators who work on improving core business processes, strengthening relationships with customers and cutting costs.
