Planning and managing are key competencies for developing effective workplace learning and performance improvement solutions. Planning involves front-end needs assessment and analysis to ensure that the learning and non-learning solutions identified align with the business and performance needs. Effective management of all stages of the initiative maximizes expectations and the ROI for the organization.
Learning professionals design and develop blended learning components which may encompass self-directed learning as well as facilitated learning in the traditional classroom, in the virtual classroom and in the on-the-job environment. The key considerations in choosing the best way to design, develop and deliver the content for each component are determined by the required learning outcomes and desired performance.
Delivery or facilitation of learning can take place in the physical and virtual classrooms and in the job environment. Instructors and facilitators know how to keep learners engaged and they motivate reluctant learners by using a variety of instructional methods, media and examples relevant to the group. Excellent delivery also includes the skills to present ideas in a clear, concise and dynamic matter, and to facilitate effective group process.
FKA’s Consulting Services has designed and developed over 2,300 hard and soft skills programs which have covered varying subject areas and course formats, including: on-the-job, self-paced, instructor-led, self-directed, multimedia and e-Learning. FKA has worked and continues to work with a wide variety of organizations, including all sectors both public and private—across the globe—helping them to design and develop programs uniquely tailored to achieve higher levels of performance and competence.
At the core of our Consulting Services is our patented Instructional Systems Design (ISD) Methodology. This robust instructional design methodology guides the processes of needs identification, analysis, design, development, implementation, evaluation and validation and can be applied to all types of learning initiatives (classroom, self-directed, e-learning, blended, hybrid, synchronous, and asynchronous). FKA has continually developed, refined, and applied this methodology to thousands of clients for more than 50 years.
