You would agree that scaling is not an easy feat. 70% of companies struggle when they scale, primarily because of poor planning though also due to a lack of a scalable learning strategy that can cater to the growing business need. Hence it is critical to develop a Scalable Learning Strategy – to train and groom your existing force and to speed up onboarding to support the growing company.
Here are some tips to get you started with creating a scalable learning strategy where training, engagement and measuring efficiency is the base.
- Train: Micro-sized learning is a good pick
Don’t bother with creating homogenous modules and learning programs. Even an hour-long learning session without segments is excessively long. The more modularized your learning content is, the easier it is to update. Calibrate, and package it with other modules to provide comprehensive experiential learning.
- Engage: Pick a platform that makes the learning interactive
Select a platform that helps produce best practice templates, is a fantastic and easy-to-use content production and distribution tool, and allows engagement with the trainees via quiz, discussion boards, and certifications.
- Measure: Performance should be the primary focus
Make learning a by-product rather than your primary aim; the ultimate focus should always be business performance and outcomes. Spend time determining where the challenges are, defining the issues you’re seeking to fix, and considering how to measure and optimize impact.
To keep up with the evolving workplace, learning environments and L&D must evolve. When executed properly, scalable learning leverages the necessary tools and technology to identify and amplify skills, knowledge, and expertise throughout the business.
