Sometimes even your best efforts don't produce the targeted behavior change or business outcomes your learning solution was created to solve. Not every project will be a rousing success so it's important to know what to do when things don't go as planned.
It can be tempting to point fingers and look for reasons outside of your control as to why things went wrong. Maybe you feel that you weren't given enough time, resources, or information to do the job. However, what's needed now is a level head and a willingness to work together across business units to fix any identified issues and turn things around. A deeper analysis can always be completed afterwards.
Here's how you can turn things around:
I had the opportunity to interview with Cornerstone and discuss how we use their Learning Management System at Accolade. For me the biggest benefits are it's reporting and curriculum management capabilities.
At Accolade, we make sure that the content we develop can be used across the organization. Instead of tying a module to a specific customer we do our best to make the materials generic so that they can be re-used within multiple learning solutions. We'll then address customer and role specific content in additional self-paced learning objects or during practical application scenarios. Having the freedom to leverage content across the organization has helped us to rapidly respond to learning needs without having to create multiple versions of materials.
Feel free to read the case study if you'd like to learn more about how we leverage Cornerstone's capabilities at Accolade.
The last entry in my series of instructional games is Lyrical Genius. Learning a new language can be difficult, this game attempts to inject a little bit of fun into the process. Players are asked to listen to a clip of a popular song and match words on the screen with the correct lyrics.
