Building the bridge between business & education: between performance success & education competency

Education costs are rising, student debt is overwhelming, and more people are questioning the value of education. In fact 32 percent of Americans 25+ have baccalaureate degrees and just 10% have associate’s degrees. A recent post stated that “a fourth of the country’s workforce—more than 36 million adults—fall into the category “some college, no degree.” … Continue reading

Competency is about performance success

Competency-based education (CBE) is focused on getting people proficient faster. More importantly CBE is a clear description of what a person can do and to what level. CBE is the common language that training, and education, should be using aligning with their internal, and external, business & industry partners. And this conversation is vital especially … Continue reading

Competencies and assessment strategies

Recent posts have centered on the skills and attributes we expect our future colleagues to have. How will they get there and how will we know? How do we design L&D experiences with the goal of having assessments be “competency-based? “While there are many definitions of competency, most of them have two common elements: The … Continue reading

Competencies we need to succeed in the future – a follow up

I asked for ideas on what competencies a future learning and performance professional will need to succeed in the next 5-10 years and led a session at the Learning Solutions Conference in March focused on Who Is the Next-gen Worker (and Are We Ready for Them?).  With the advances in social media, technology, and mobile … Continue reading

Strategically Social is tactically terrific!

I had several personal responses to my last post that can best be summed up as, “me too!”  One person recounted an internal client who had to have a CBT although what really was needed was a job aid the workers could hang on their badge lanyards for quick reference!  It was a reader who … Continue reading

It really comes down to performance…

I been talking with a number of people recently on topics such as creating a community of practice (CoP), expanding professional development programs, and integrating talent management into learning past compliance.  In all of these discussions someone has brought up the need to develop and deliver “training” programs.  When I dig into the question a … Continue reading

Time to reflect, renew, and engage!

Happy 2013 and farewell 12!  I had a year filled with learning, filled with change, and have entered 2013 with a deeper understanding of what matters most (well, to me!) in the world we live in.  As I look forward to this new year I want to share the five key lessons that are defining … Continue reading

Will collaborative and cooperative make you coherent?

Conversation in and around IQPC’s 14th Annual Corporate University Week had a common theme focused on where the learning professional and the Corporate University belong in today’s 70-20-10 learning model (“Business is changing – are we keeping up?”).  There was a lot of talk about how the corporate “U” has its traditional structure of “colleges” … Continue reading

Are you missing the conversation?

That is what “Social Media” (SoMe) is to me, an opportunity to create, provoke, and reflect on conversations.  However a recent discussion found me on the side against SoMe when my colleague was waxing poetic on the interactions, the threads, the discussions, the variety of topics, the breadth of people involved until I asked, “but … Continue reading
