Design Strategies for Transformational Learning

Get smarter and faster before your competition does

Your industry has undergone radical change, and your organization needs to get smarter and faster – now.  How do you know what your workforce needs to learn, and how do you link the learning to your strategic goals and objectives? Most importantly, how do you ensure the learning will position your organization to anticipate and stay ahead of change in the future?

Transformational learning starts with crafting design strategies that align with the needs of your workforce and the organization.

This complex design thinking process includes everything from content curation strategies to enabling anywhere, anytime learning, measuring impact, and more. 

Your design strategies will drive the entire transformational learning process, and will determine how you operate as an organization going forward. If you’re following transformational change in your industry rather than leading it, the future of your business could rest on the outcome.

Infuse strategic instructional design into your process

Strategic instructional design is big picture. That means we need new ways of thinking and doing. We achieve this by fostering collaborative development, pulling from other areas of design for new perspectives, and bringing them to life. Here’s how:

Design learning that sticks through employee experience and learning culture

Ensure your learning design sticks by aligning your business outcomes, knowing who your influencers are, and by being future focused.

It's not Linear design

Rethink your design thinking strategy

A unique spin to this process is that we have blended the human centric focus from design thinking with the rigor of agile development. This ensures that the great solutions are brought to life and don’t die on the whiteboard.

The design thinking process is anything but linear. It requires a flexible, nonlinear and iterative approach to achieve optimal results.
