Among some of our area of experience and expertise include:
Less Administration– There is less to think about when organising public training in comparison with In-House training, as the training company is responsible for the whole event. Location, equipment, finding the right trainer and caterer for refreshments are all handled by the company. If you engage our services, we will also manage all booking forms and cancellations – leaving you with even less to worry about!
External Networking– Public scheduled training allows your employees to socialize with people from other companies and backgrounds. This can be useful for networking as useful contacts can be made that could be might be referred at a later date. The other big advantage is that people from other companies and backgrounds will likely offer different approaches and viewpoints – therefore giving even more to consider in the training session and more to learn. It is always useful to keep up with best practice in the industry.
Lack of Distractions– Once you have sent your employees on a public scheduled course, they are free from any responsibilities of their usual day to day activities. Employees simply won’t be able to be dragged out of the training if something comes up as they won’t be in the building. Therefore you know all of your employees will have nothing to stop them from spending all day and all of their attention on the training. Also, a break from familiar surroundings can help invigorate people and help them focus.
Variance– An external trainer on a public scheduled course who has little ties or knowledge of your company may be able to give a fresh perspective to any issue without being bias. They will likely provide recommendations that are completely different to what you are used to in your company that can help broaden your understanding of a subject. This new insight will be helpful in your communication back to your company.

Once the solution is identified and agreed upon, the client's team will be trained accordingly with continous assistance in the implementation - to achieve progress and positive results for the long term.
E-learning is gaining popularity and for a good reason. If done right, it can produce great results by decreasing costs and improving performance. Also, unlike a onetime classroom session, the e-learning course is available for others. This includes the static e-learning course as well as any ongoing conversations in networked communities.
Recently, I had a conversation with someone new to e-learning and it struck me that she didn’t fully understand the value of e-learning. I think this is common as more people are joining the world of e-learning. Understanding e-learning’s value helps you make the best decisions about when and why to use it.
Improved training costs. Producing learning content is time consuming whether it’s online or not. With e-learning, each time the course is accessed your return on investment improves because you are dividing the fixed production costs by number of uses. You also have savings through decreased travel, reduced material, and hopefully improved (and more efficient) performance.
Decreased material costs. Let’s say you have to train how to arrange equipment in a sterile environment like an operating room. If you had to use the real environment, it would be costly. Even setting up a fake environment has material costs and labor. By creating the environment online and letting the learner practice, you never have to worry about the costs associated with set up, use, and clean up.
Increased productivity. Because e-learning is not bound by geography or time, you can control training’s impact on production by training people during down times. In addition, with the current economy, you’re asking people to do more with less. So e-learning is a great way to give them the tools and skills needed to enhance their performance.
Standardization. You may have a great facilitator, but that’s no guarantee that the courses are presented the same across sessions. E-learning allows you to create a standardized process and consistency in the delivery of content. It also compresses delivery time. I’ve combined e-learning courses with facilitated sessions. E-learning delivered consistent content. Live sessions were interactive case studies that applied the information.
Real-time access. Live learning events require that those who participate align their schedules to the training calendar. E-learning eliminates this because the course can be accessed anytime, anywhere. This can also happen without Internet access. I saw a Red Cross demo where the learners accessed the content on a PC out in the field and uploaded their results when they were back online.
Freedom to Fail. Let’s face it, real learning requires some failure. But no one likes to fail in a classroom full of other people. E-learning lets you fail without fear . This encourages exploration and testing of ideas. With the right feedback you create a great learning environment. Worst case, you can always start over. Something you can’t always do in class.
Improved retention. The combination of multimedia and instructional design can produce a very rich learning experience that is repeatable. Throw in some good practice activities with feedback and you have a learning environment that’s going to help your learners retain the course content which will produce results.
Personalized learning. Look out the window at your parking lot. My guess is that you’ll see a dozen or more different cars. They all do the same thing, yet we have personal opinions about what we want to drive. The same for learning. Learners want control. E-learning allows you to offer control to the learners in a way that classroom learning doesn’t.
Ongoing access to resources. If you take a class in the real world and need a refresher, you better hope that you took good notes. Otherwise, you’re out of luck. That’s not the case with elearning. Ideally, you continue to have access to the online content and resources to brush up on what you learned.
Knowledge management. Many people see elearning as only the authored courses. But elearning includes all sort of online technologies. If you incorporate some of the tools that allow collaboration and conversation, you can capture organizational knowledge that is available for future learners.
Encourage sharing. The foundation of a learning community is built on sharing what you know with others. This is where incorporating a forum or wiki really adds value to your elearning. Depending on how the course is structured, you can encourage sharing of resources and insight gained from the course.
Employer of choice. People want opportunities to grow. A cafeteria with high fat foods is one way. Another is a catalog with all sorts of elearning courses. This allows them to explore other opportunities in the organization. During downtime, it would be great to spend fifteen minutes learning to better manage meetings or improve working with peers. Offering these opportunities to learn makes you a place people want to stay.
More specifically, what is a project? It’s a temporary group activity designed to produce a unique product, service or result.
A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources. And a project is unique in that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal. So a project team often includes people who don’t usually work together – sometimes from different organizations and across multiple geographies.
The development of software for an improved business process, the construction of a building or bridge, the relief effort after a natural disaster, the expansion of sales into a new geographic market — all are projects.
And all must be expertly managed to deliver the on-time, on-budget results, learning and integration that organizations need.
Project management, then, is the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to execute projects effectively and efficiently. It’s a strategic competency for organizations, enabling them to tie project results to business goals — and thus, better compete in their markets.
