Did You Just Hear That Millions Is Wasted On Ineffective Training?

Did You Just Hear That Millions Is Wasted On Ineffective Training? | Leadership Pipeline Development, Talent Enchancement | Scoop.it

In the past fortnight, CIPD released their Learning and Talent Development Survey 2013. The survey results show that 74% of organisations in the UK currently use eLearning, but only 15% report that it is one of the most effective training methods available to them. I suspect the numbers are similar around the globe.

 

So how much of an organisation’s training budget is spent on the development of eLearning? Recent IBIS research shows that $26 billion is spent globally on eLearning or 13% of all training expenditure. Why are so many organisations continuing to invest in eLearning modules if it is not the most effective way to train their people? The same CIPD study also found that only 31% of organisations reported that most employees completed an eLearning course. Immediately the true cost of that “cost-effective” eLearning module exploded. How can the ROI be justified to any CEO or CFO?

E-learning can be effective, but only if part of a package.  The lazy way is just to spend money on it and forget the briefing, follow through, coaching, etc.  Just like it is with cmpanies that spend money on courses without all the other poaarts of the effective learning package.

 

I other words, it's not so much the elearning but the corporate mind set that is the big issue in my opinion.

Great comment David. I agree that eLearning can offer some benefits when it part of a complete blended learning solution. I guess the survey shows that too many organisations are relying purely on an isolated module and they are then disappointed when they don't see change/improvement they require.

After exploring the ineffective nature of asynchronous learning (think Moodle and LMS) the author proposes that synchronous learning (webinars for example) are the way to increase participant retention AND reduce cost.  When thinking of creating a culture of PD in your school, what questions does this research uncover?

Leadership lessons from a bowl of porridge | The Learning Factor

Leadership lessons from a bowl of porridge | The Learning Factor | Leadership Pipeline Development, Talent Enchancement | Scoop.it

 

Let’s face it, change is a pain. My wife loves to cook and decided she wanted a Thermomix for her birthday.  Although there is no appliance she doesn’t already own, a Thermomix was what she wanted. If you are novice like me, buying a Thermomix is like buying a BMW for the kitchen (almost as expensive), however we gave her what she wanted.  “Happy wife, happy life” has been a long held motto of mine after I learnt it from our local Italian deli owner.

 

Since then we have been experiencing amazing quality cooking like I have never had before. BUT (and there is always a but), I didn’t understand this German technology at all. There it sits on the kitchen bench all shiny and proud, but to me scary as hell. Like a loyal blue heeler cattle dog, who loves its owner but bites any stranger who approaches it.

 

Just after it’s arrival my wife, a born and bred teacher, attempted to show me how to make scrambled eggs. There were more keystrokes to remember than attempting to join two photos together using Adobe Photoshop! In the end I promptly made a mental note – “avoid the blue heeler”.

What I learned about leadership from my bowl of porridge.

"As leaders our job is to inspire and show our teams the vision of what they could be after they embrace change!! Hmmm, something to ponder over as I eat another bowl of porridge."
