March 2014: Simulation Develops Results Focused Leaders at Fortune 300 Company

new research about how people learn

In my previous life as the head of Alltel University, and owner of its leadership development programs, I went in search of a capstone training event for the program we designed for 300 Directors and Vice Presidents across the organization. Having provided 360 assessments, external coaching, and internal workshops to this group on its Core Leadership Values, I wanted an immersive experience that would build strategic thinking skills and adaptable decision-making in a competitive and dynamic environment that would test participants behaviors against the Values, as much as their Executive acumen.

July 2013: Now You CAN Have it Both Ways!

new research about how people learn

Back in 2010, David Milliken and I engaged in a spirited debate here in this blog. We explored whether skill practice through eSimulations was as effective as live role-play in a classroom.

As a quick recap, I argued that there are important aspects of live role-play that could not be replicated in an eSimulation. These include live coaching on non-verbal aspects of the learner’s delivery such as voice-tone, pace and body language.

David, on the other hand, correctly pointed out some of the problems with live role-plays that eSimulations address better. These include the challenges of extreme variability in the delivery of the “other player,” such as people “playing extreme hard-ball,” or just not taking their role seriously and thus depriving the learner of a real opportunity to practice the skills.

January 2013: It’s Not a Game. It’s Gamification. How Blueline Simulations is creating new levels of learning retention.

new research about how people learn

I try not to care about FourSquare. The simple location app, which my teenage daughter helpfully loaded onto my iPhone, encourages me to “check in” every time I go to Starbucks, to Kroger, or to the hip new restaurant downtown.

Help me. I can’t stop. Every time I check in somewhere, I earn points and am able to compare my activity against my friends. I even earn “badges” for dubious achievements such as “checking in at three places after midnight.” And it is a source of some kind of misplaced pride that I have been named “mayor” with the most check-ins at Nashville International Airport’s gate C-9.

November 2012: Do You Really Know What Your People are Thinking?

new research about how people learn

At Blueline, we have set a high bar for creating cutting-edge interactive classroom and electronic training. Yet oddly, the fastest-growing service in our business is something we refer to as Blueline's Voice of the Business (VOB) Process.

Maybe it isn't really odd at all.

It's a little funny (and a lot scary) that some custom learning developers suggest that they can do a thorough needs analysis in just a few hours. I guess that might be okay if you are developing a simple training program.

September 2012: Going Mobile: Learning's New Holy Grail?

new research about how people learn

In a short time, our world has changed. We now have the ability to create interactive elearning content and publish it on mobile devices, including iPhones, using HTML5. Within a few months I am absolutely confident that Blueline's designers will be able to distribute our award-winning computer based elearning and esimulations via every mobile device imaginable.

But just because we can, does that mean we should? (That's a great question that one of the characters posed in the movie Jurassic Park. You may remember what happened to them.)

August 2012: Are You Feeling The Pressure to Deliver Training ROI?
Here's an Idea for You.

new research about how people learn

Return on investment, it's a pressure that everyone I know in training is feeling these days.

Sure, a clear ROI has been the Holy Grail for training and development for years. But these days it's different. In this economic climate, there is a heightened sensitivity to cost and to delivering maximum return to the business.

As a training professional, how do you answer the ROI question when your boss comes calling?

Special ASTD Onboarding Issue: Step Ahead of the Competition
with Strategic Onboarding

new research about how people learn

Watch the faces of your employees next time you tell them they need to learn business literacy.

Okay, so you're telling folks that your people are your greatest asset. That's a great start. How well are your behaviors and processes backing you up? In this pressure-cooker environment with increased competition, changing customer behaviors, constant technology advancements and economic uncertainty, now is a great time to leverage that "greatest asset" as a real differentiator.
