What Are You Measuring?

Posted by Bill Crose on September 13, 2019 at 11:33am 0 Comments

A lifetime ago, my training department colleagues and I were satisfied with training data. We cranked out the requested ILT programs plus the "flavor of the year" content, we kept a busy training schedule, and made sure the coffee was always the right temperature. When accused of not delivering effective training because the learners didn't perform as they were trained, we took refuge in our management support role and not ultimately responsible or accountable for LEARNING or productivity.…

Segment 6(17) – Implementation Now (Today would be fine)

During Georgia LEARNS 2015 Segment 11 Sunil Narang asked us to think about simplification.

His question reminded me of the Boston Consulting Group TED Talk - Smart Simplicity.

Simplicity was emphasized in Georgia LEARNS 2016 - and while easy to articulate (simplify) it is not necessarily easy to implement.

The six rules of Smart Simplicity form a component of the Accountable Learning Organization model that are used to help us collaborate for speed of implementation - while improving quality and flexibility.

Each panelist will be asked to respond to how "Smart Simplicity" relates to their application of the Accountable Learning Model to a current problem (one of the 10 defined on 2016 or a different one of their choice.)

Here is a link to help you learn about the six rules -

Here is a more recent video - much more highly produced - and ironically - much more structure and process oriented!

Looking forward to meeting you all here.

Looking forward to the discussion! It is all about gaining kowledge. Regardless of where you are in your framework, MOVE to a better vantage point! Don’t overwork it, just make sure what you invest is worth what you will learn.
I believe people worry about win/loss ratios. Mine is actually pretty low. I try A LOT of things that do not work. However, when I LOSE, I lose small. When I WIN, I win BIG. So, I worry much more about PROFIT/LOSS.

I am not afraid to invest small to answer a question or to disprove a hypothesis (that is the scientific method, right?). I just won’t bet the farm without reducing uncertainty. It requires framing the right problem, managing a network, trying things that may be wrong to pivot to profitability.

It NEVER means stalling. Standing still is the death of innovation. Your competitors are certainly moving - racing - past you. You will cease to exist.
