MOBILITY: LET'S NOT PHONE IT IN!

MOBILITY FOR TRYING TIMES

If you thought that was a joke about mobility for practice periods, you got us! But seriously...

Even in the most romanticised view of great teaching, movies get one thing right: the way you teach on a daily basis is different from when you teach at a challenging time. In the climax of the story, the teacher doesn't just summarise the lessons of the year, but in fact provides well-timed advice - different advice from the rest of the year.

There's no denying that even very real learners need a different kind of support, maybe even challenge-training to be able to perform at certain times. These trying times could be the early stressful stages of talent building, the rollout of some large impact initiative, an organisation-wide change, or even a new regulation mandating changed behaviour.

At such times, your learners need more than a single classroom session and maybe even something more than just training interventions – they need continuous support in multiple forms that they can bank on anytime, anywhere. That’s why you may want to consider mobility for better support.

WHY YOU NEED TO LEVERAGE MOBILE FOR PERFORMANCE SUPPORT

Performance support is actually not meant to be lifelong learning, it is simply just-in-time information accessed at a point of time, situation and location. It can be used to perform a task or make a decision and then forgotten – if you like!” This pragmatic post explains when you really need performance support, the role it plays in learning and how mobility can be effectively leveraged for robust performance support.

MOBILITY AND OFFLINE LEARNER MANAGEMENT

The typical context in which learners access training from within the cyber and physical boundaries of the organisation, poses no challenge any more. However, organisations which have to deal with a remote workforce or a workforce that is on the move (for example, a field sales force), face some interesting new problems.

The perspective of embracing 'failure as a good thing' never fades away; there are just ebbs and flows in the conversation about it. But, there is one remarkable group which has done far more than just talk - they positively celebrate failures and reframe them intelligently! That's Improbable Research. But what are the Improbable Research people about?

Our goal is to make people laugh, then make them think. We also hope to spur people's curiosity, and to raise the question: How do you decide what's important and what's not, and what's real and what's not — in science and everywhere else?

Talk about being remarkably focussed and getting it spot on, more so than even most training organisations!
