Reduce the Capability Gap with Technology-Based Learning

Of all the things that keep leaders up at night, one of the most challenging is the “capability gap,” that is making sure the right people are with the organization, in the right roles, and with the right skills to move the business forward.

How can leaders assess their organization, to reduce capability gaps and build their competitive advantage? A strong place to start is with a role-based talent development program that encompasses consistent onboarding and ongoing learning experiences. I shared seven benefits of technology-based learning in this guest blog in Columbus CEO.

Why aren’t we doing better with mobile learning?

Speaking of mobile, last week we were pleased to be a part of #GuildChat on Twitter. The engaging chat was hosted by the eLearning Guild, and focused on the topic of mobile learning design. If you missed it, you can view the transcript online.

This Friday’s topic is Serious Games and Gamification. We’ll be there at 2 p.m. EDT and hope you’ll join us. Look for @AmyFranko to provide her tips and insights.
