Beta Program, Email List, Acquisition - A Case Study in What Not to Do

Tony Karrer

A company with a very good product (the leader in its category) asked its leading users to participate in a Beta program right around the time they were acquired. The acquired company established a listserve mailing list and put all of their top users on the list.Here a few of the emails (there are about 80 in total), but you'll get the idea: Dec 8, 2005 Once the beta is ready I am sure they'll let us know first. May 22, 2006 I believe that the prior Beta program is gone.

Making 70-20 Learning Visible

Fort Hill Company

After the war they were recruited to “program” ENIAC, the first general purpose computer in the world. Since no one had ever programed a computer before there was no “10” or formal learning they could attend to learn how. So by definition they had to use 70 (learning by doing) and 20 (social learning) from each other to discover how to program. Bill and Paul are using 70-20 learning because there was no one else in the school that knew how to program.

High Performance Learning with 70-20®

Fort Hill Company

My objectives for integrating 70-20 into the programs addressed the formal, social and informal learning aspects (10-20-70 learning model) of the program.

Fort Hill Company

Our first two blog posts in this 3-part series focused on the benefits of moving away from the “course mindset” and moving toward a “learning campaign mindset” that drives stronger participant engagement and performance improvement. It happens in-person through conversations, meetings, programs and events, as well as online via social media outlets like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, and on collaboration technology like Yammer, Jive and 70-20®.

Learning Campaigns: Driving Engagement and Performance Improvement – Part 1

Fort Hill Company

This will be a three-part blog series that will examine learning campaigns from three perspectives: 1) participant engagement; 2) performance improvement; and 3) social learning. One strategy that supports the shift is to transform training programs into learning campaigns. Charles Jennings, co-founder of the 70:20:10 Institute in Europe, recently discussed this shift in his excellent blog: From Courses to Campaigns: using the 70:20:10 approach.

Challenge: Make Informal Learning Visible & Valuable

Fort Hill Company

If the power of 70-20 learning is to be harnessed in support of organizational goals so L&D can extend its reach beyond the delivery of formal programs (the “10s”), a first step is to make informal and social learning visible and recognizable.

User-Generated Content is Going to Set Your Digital Learning Apart

eLearningMind

It can take the form of product reviews, blogs, forum posts, job aids, product and company wikis, and even case studies. Start small: Invite a handful of employees to contribute to a company blog or encourage them to be active on an organizational forum. You can’t rely on user-generated content completely for digital learning, but it can supplement any program or course. Imagine that you’re spending a leisurely day shopping at the mall.
