Training is dead. Long live learning.

Traditional entrepreneurial training is on the brink of extinction. Face to face training is below minimum level. Don’t you realise that? What about the online training? It is rather complicated to have the scheduled participation. Appointees to this online training are not waiting in their workstation for instructions concerning what to do and how to do it.

Tendency has changed and now they are those who actively exchange knowledge, making the process more realistic and usable.

In the Human Resources field and in consultancies, training is not part of the management. This is simply something to share. We are creating platforms in which questions are asked and answered. Knowledge is shared, because the only useful knowledge is the one which is shared through interconnected brains. (Punset quotation).

Training catalogues are a disuse formula, because the long term methods have just disappeared. Repetitive training actions have just been transformed in a banal absurdity. The employee just faces new challenges every week, and requires ad hoc learning methods.

Time is money, and leaving the workstation means to leave your duties behind for the search of an inspiration or a support. Letting down employees is dangerous and could lead to future refusals in participation.

There are neither expensive nor cheap trainings. Training is cost-effective. It provides a highly valuable return: To solve complex situations and to provide key elements of success. This drives to have, in a progressively and almost unnoticeable way, more talented employees and more competitive companies.

It is something not studied but discovered. Long PWP presentations, online training through endless slides and multi-option questions have given way to gamification and the experience learning. These formulas hook up participants and make participation grow exponentially.

Internal communication and training will not be different functions anymore. Where is the border between these two elements? Knowledge is applied information. If strategies of both elements are aligned and share means and channels, employee will get a more effective service and more consistent information.

Here the challenge goes….  Do you enroll in it?
