Designing for Transfer

The need

Designing and delivering training that maximises on-the-job results

Producing relevant learning is essential but insufficient. Clients and key stakeholders want the benefits of applied learning, not just the learning itself. They want enhanced workplace performance and positive results! Consequently, training effectiveness and credibility ultimately depend on the extent to which learning is successfully applied in the workplace

This program is based on an extensive review of 30+ years of research into the drivers of learning transfer. It will clarify the business case for addressing transfer and the essential levers for maximising on-the-job results. You will learn about the barriers that prevent or inhibit transfer and key factors that influence learner motivation to put learning to work. The primary focus is on how to integrate transfer of learning into program design and delivery using strategies that harness manager/leader involvement and strategies that directly influence learner behaviour
