Effective and efficient learning:

to make your organisation fit for the future.

Your organisation will only thrive in the coming decade if it can change faster than its business world is changing. And do this at lower cost than competition. So getting more business benefit from your learning and development money is of paramount importance.

Just putting in a better, high-powered training alone may even hurt your bottom line. After all, shoehorning a Ferrari F1 engine into your Volkswagen might sound great pulling away from the (more…)

We have the technology

We already have all the mature, sustainable and affordable technology we need in areas like renewable energy, water, food etc.  So what has stopped us from already having a fully sustainable economy and civilisation?

Simply that we have a gap in our social technology. Globally slower innovation in social technology (how people work together towards an objective,  and in how our markets work,) than in physical or chemical technology. We in tetraLD, along with a growing number of other people, (more…)

The start of a new era: Futurproofing your organisation.

We are at the start of a new era. See this video and discussion for the triggers for this blog entry.

The latest addition to this is the TransferLogix tool, which step-changes how training gets transferred into high-performance on-the-job behaviours. And it does this by first getting solid data on what is working and not working in the training.

This is a new to the world instrument, so we’ve just spent 3 days with  in London training and planning for TransferLogix’s future in (more…)
