Every business wants results in order to build and sustain a competitive advantage and keep the business moving forward. To achieve this, businesses should start by understanding that learning does not lead to sustainability but rather that learning is sustainability.
To get the best out of your business, you need to get the best out of your people. And, to do this you not only have to empower and inspire them by training and communicating with them in motivating and engaging ways but you also have to consider the unique way in which adults learn. Research on adult learning clearly showed that “adults in their daily lifelong learning normally learn from other adults. Persons with some limited literacy skills can help others in their group to learn literacy skills through participatory methods.” (Rogers: 2002, p9)
This White Paper commences with a detailed discussion of Learning Maps. First, it defines a learning map emphasising the classic characteristic of a map: that it is directional with a clear goal. This is followed by a discussion of the importance of design. The section concludes with an analysis of the benefits attached to a learning map.
From there, the Paper moves on to discuss the seven ways in which learning maps will increase employee effectiveness. It highlights the fact that Learning Maps can be used as a learning solution for a variety of business challenges some of which include but are not limited to: onboarding and induction, brand engagement, change management, customer service touchpoints, health and safety hazards strategy, visualization, and process improvement.
