The Six Most Important Things You Can Do to Make Learning More Valuable.
It doesn’t matter how great your training is. It doesn’t matter how much people learn. If learning doesn’t get transferred and used to improve performance, then, from the business’s perspective, the training failed. Learning transfer has moved into the forefront of issues in training and development. While new technologies have given us greater options than ever for delivering content, learning transfer remains the Achilles’ Heel of training and development. If learners don’t transfer and apply what they learned to their work, then their performance doesn’t improve, and the learning produces little or no value. In this session, you will learn the six most important things you can do to drive transfer and make learning more valuable. You will be introduced to the 6Ds used by the most effective learning organizations to guarantee learning transfer:
D1: Define Business Outcomes
D2: Design the Complete Experience
D3: Deliver for Application
D4: Drive Learning Transfer
D5: Deploy Performance Support
D6: Document Results
You’ll find out how organizations around the world are using The 6Ds to drive business results from training. You will learn new tools and practical ideas for implementing the 6Ds as well as the opportunity to ask questions and to share best practices with other learning professionals. And you will be able to:
- Explain the 6Ds concepts and their importance to their learning and business colleagues
- Takes immediate steps to implement 6Ds concepts in in their organization
- Increase learning transfer and the business impact of training in their organizations.
