What force separates the winners from the losers in today’s marketplace?

The same force that has shaped survivors throughout history — change!

Since the beginning of time, it has been those who have learned to control change that have prospered.

How does an organization acquire the skills and knowledge to meet the challenge of change?

Through TRAINING !

A successful company needs managers and planners who can see the potential of the changes taking place around and within the organization. Only then can they utilize that potential toward meeting company goals.

And a successful company needs skilled employees at many levels to implement changes, operate new technologies and, keep systems operating.

There is no longer a question of whether to train. Today, the question is how to provide training that is both effective and efficient. And today the answer to that question is clear — E-LEARNING !

e-Learning is efficient! It is available 24×7 by anyone from anywhere with a high speed internet connection.

e-Learning can be effective, as long as the programs have been designed by knowledgeable instructional designers. In addition to accurate and complete subject matter content, the e-Learning that works uses a multi-sensory media design that speaks to the learning culture of most Americans born after 1960. Above all, the design is built around optional word-for-word audio that allows both the fluent readers to read and the less-fluent readers to listen.

Winning companies are embedding e-Learning into their “change for success” strategies. And, that’s what will continue to separate the winners from the losers.
