5 Reasons to Use MicroLearning

5 Reasons to Use MicroLearning | Management | Scoop.it

MicroLearning is a form of learning that delivers key concepts in as short an amount of time as possible. It is a short, sharp, just-in-time snippet. I like to think of microLearning as 'short enough to watch standing up on the job'. It's when you need a quick tip, brush up on a specific skill or have a moment to learn about new product between customers.

 

What are the 5 advantages of microLearning?

1.   Timely Learning.

The greatest advantage of microLearning is time. Imagine a manager racing through their day. They have a performance management meeting with an employee but have not had the time to read up on the correct procedure to follow. Or a railway engineer arriving at a broken down train and the broken axle is something he hasn't unbolted for 12 months. Neither of them have the time to scroll through three layers on the company's Intranet, find the LMS, log on and watch the 20-minute module. 

 

What they want is to go to their phone, open an App, and BAM! There is the 3-minute microLearning video. It's all about timely learning.

2.   Speed to Market.

One of our clients is a global Japanese car manufacturer. They require an eLearning module for every new model released. They don't have months to plan for product training. They need learning NOW! What companies require is microLearning with rapid development that matches their timeline for product delivery.

3.   Expiry Date

Learning's expiry date is faster than ever. It used to be that a learning program would last a few years before it needs refreshing but with changing products, people and systems, learning is being discarded faster and needs to be produced cheaply, yet with quality. MicroLearning is a cost effective and fast way to develop training content, making it a win/win for the companies and the learners.

4.   Pictures are powerful

Around 70% of millennials visit YouTube monthly. It is a large part of their life so it seems obvious that we should adapt learning to what they are familiar with. When millennials need to learn something, they watch a 2 minute YouTube video.

Research teaches us that if you hear something, after 3 days, you would have only retained 10% of what you learnt. If you then add a picture to that, retention increases to 65% - that's 6 times better! Using video in MicroLearning makes it stick. Our brain links what we hear to a picture and retention is greater.

5.   Mobile

One of our Pharma clients is investing in Asia. The people they are training in Asia have limited access to computers, but they all have smartphones. How do they train them? MicroLearning. They make it engaging, enjoyable, entertaining and most of all mobile compatible. The training is mobile, so that they can watch it standing up on the job, or sitting on the bus or train.

 

MicroLearning is certainly leading the way in creating new and exciting learning content, whilst making the process easier for both the companies and their employees. Send me a message if you'd like to find out more on our microLearning offering and what we can offer.

The Productivity Tricks Of Seven Successful Entrepreneurs

The Productivity Tricks Of Seven Successful Entrepreneurs | Management | Scoop.it

Successful entrepreneurs have a lot of things in common; one is knowing how to make the best use of their time. When the clock is ticking and they are under pressure to deliver, many have a favourite productivity hack to ensure things get done on time. Here, seven entrepreneurs share their tried and tested ways of being more productive.

 

Create artificial deadlines

 

Business expert and author of The Startup Coach Carl Reader uses a clever technique of creating artificial deadlines to guarantee a productive finish.

 

“One of my favourite tricks is the ‘train journey to nowhere,” he said. “I book a return train ticket, don't take my mobile phone, and set a completion target for the journey. With a clear deadline and no distractions, I find that I often produce more than I would in the office in a whole day. It's great if you can tie this around meetings that you need to travel to, but if not, the productivity boost is well worth the cost of a train ticket.”

Taking a Value-Chain Perspective on Innovation

Taking a Value-Chain Perspective on Innovation | Management | Scoop.it

As a researcher who studies technology use by companies, I wanted to understand what happened. Who kept up? Who fell behind? And why? I considered the fact that while leaders do enjoy economies of scale in the adoption of new technologies, they may also find that adjustment costs — tasks like tweaking processes to match the flow of new software (or vice versa), hiring employees with new skill sets, or coordinating new points of contact across the organization — may increase with scale. Getting value-chain partners on board is essential for innovation and e-business success.

Most of this data is ambiguous and incomplete, so it is very easy for a group to maintain the illusion that it is making an idea real, when in actuality it simply remains stuck in a shared fantasy. This problem is exacerbated when people in leadership roles are highly defended and use staff to serve narcissistic needs in preference to realising strategic aspirations.

Leadership May Not Be the Problem with Your Innovation Team

Leadership May Not Be the Problem with Your Innovation Team | Management | Scoop.it

Last November we published an assessment on HBR.org to help readers diagnose the extent to which their organizations create conditions that favor successful innovation. About 1,500 people completed the assessment, representing organizations across industries at different stages of maturity. Despite enormous attention placed on improving innovation effectiveness, 80% of participants thought their companies were underperforming on this front. Unsurprisingly, those working for older, larger businesses scored lowest in all four innovation conditions: constant energy, creative friction, flexible structure, and purposeful discovery. Here’s what the data tells us about how these HBR readers rate their organizations and colleagues on the four conditions. We’ve also included a few tips to address the lowest-scoring responses in each category. This advice should help whether you’re about to kick off a new innovation project or your team is already off and running.

You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Great Leader

You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Great Leader | Management | Scoop.it

Many people believe leadership is something that's conferred along with a title or attained when you direct a team of people, but true leadership is never about authority or power. It's about helping others grow, and that's something anyone can do.

 

If it's your desire to influence and have an impact on others, you have leadership qualities. And if you can inspire people to do something they thought they couldn't do, demonstrate how the impossible is possible, believe in someone when they didn't believe in themselves, you're already a leader.

 

People don't set out to be great leaders, they set out to make a difference. It's never about the role or the title, but about influencing others, helping and supporting them.

What Leadership Looks Like in Different Cultures

What Leadership Looks Like in Different Cultures | Management | Scoop.it

What makes a great leader? Although the core ingredients of leadership are universal (good judgment, integrity, and people skills), the full recipe for successful leadership requires culture-specific condiments. The main reason for this is that cultures differ in their implicit theories of leadership, the lay beliefs about the qualities that individuals need to display to be considered leaders. Depending on the cultural context, your typical style and behavioral tendencies may be an asset or a weakness. In other words, good leadership is largely personality in the right place.

 

Research has shown that leaders’ decision making, communication style, and dark-side tendencies are influenced by the geographical region in which they operate. Below we review six major leadership types that illustrate some of these findings.
