ServicesWhether you've got a clear idea of your capability development needs or are wondering where to start, we'll help you create learning strategies and solutions that get the results you want.
Strategy & FrameworksYour thinking + our thinking leads to the best approach
By understanding the needs, challenges and opportunities within your organisation, we can ensure the learning strategies we recommend will optimise your business for success, both now and in the future.
That's why, before we embark on your learning and development project, we work closely with you to understand what your business wants to achieve and how your people's performance will contribute to achieving your strategic objectives. Then we design the learning strategy and create an over-arching capability framework that aligns with your strategic objectives.
While our approach is consultative and collaborative, we aren't afraid to ask challenging questions and present fresh thinking.
Each framework results in a different form and presentation style, designed to meet the specific needs and desired outcomes. These could be online or paper-based and might be hierarchical flowcharts, learning pathways, maps or visual journeys, stylised diagrams, interactive tools, etc.
We take a pragmatic approach to capability development, and favour a whole of job perspective where appropriate.
Some of our typical frameworks include:
- Induction Frameworks - from group- or company-wide, through to Business Unit and even Team
- Role-based Capability or Learning Frameworks - with built-in learning pathways
- Industry & Product Knowledge for Salespeople - with the purpose of increasing overall revenue
- Leadership Frameworks - helping your leaders to create high performing teams
Whatever type of framework is created for you, the result is a complete blueprint for success covering all aspects required to meet your strategic learning outcomes.
