I have no time for learning and training.”, “Must I attend this training?
We hear the complaints of learners. But what are we doing about it?

Many studies and experts tell us that training and learning must focus on improving performance. However, performance improvement has always been a nebulous or difficult goal to achieve through training and learning programs. Bersin by Deloitte has released a recent study showing that training programs rank the lowest in the list that learners use to obtain knowledge to improve work. The highest source of knowledge is from connections within the organization.

Skipping learning and accelerating expertise is the new “buzz”of new platforms, solutions and learning thought leaders. However, most solutions are stuck with “learning content and its tools and mindsets” and not on accelerating expertise.

In this session, we will discuss the following :
  • What is significantly different about focusing on performance or expertise?
  • What are the different types of expertise researches that have been found to work in rapidly changing organizations?
  • What compelling transformation must content undergo?
  • How do you help learners think and build expertise and not just learning?
  • How do expertise development tools such as framing, channeling, sensing, problem-solving and others accelerate expertise?
  • How do trainer, designer and coach skills get overhauled to become expertise accelerators?
