Due to organizational time and costs restrictions, Management is motivated to look at alternative ways to upskill their workforce. Self-paced learning combined with practical work-related studies can be a powerful driver towards getting staff skilled in their own time and via their own learning style.
Due to the inherent nature of the KEPNERandFOURIE® problem solving workshop it was a natural transition from the face-to-face classroom approach to that of a blended approach imparting both knowledge and skills using different learning vehicles. Typically knowledge transfer is more effective with self-paced learning and therefore an ideal candidate for online learning.
We have dissected our problem-solving training modules and compartmentalized the contents into sections of knowledge, skills and experience requirements. The knowledge component fits ideally on an online platform and it is complimented by well thought out exercises, case study applications and coaching sessions to form a holistic and exciting training journey. This blended style provides an engaging and participative learning approach.
