Since It All Began As Informal Learning …

… Targeting the Right Performance for Formal Learning Is Critical

I recommend a solid Governance & Advisory Structure of people and of processes and metrics that make sense to that enterprise.

One example – to help you understand where I am coming from … and later why …

LD Goverance Structure Example

This is where Command & Control and Collaboration happen.

Don’t like Command and Control? So that Resource do not necessarily go to where they are most critically needed … and perhaps go Wherever?

A Review from 2001 …

“Guy Wallace has done it again! After demystifying the ISD process in his lean-ISD book, he tackles the corporate training and development system and puts it in a business-focused perspective. Whether you are in-house or serving as an external consultant, you will find Guy’s model an invaluable tool for enterprise training and development.

This analytic and design process ensures that you dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s when moving your company or client to Learning by Design, not Learning by Chance. The elegant clockface model helps you develop a clear picture of any organization and clearly helps you map out how best to effectively manage all the elements of the enterprise. Once the elements are mapped out, the model, through enclosed assessment and prioritizing tools, helps determine where and when to put corporate assets to maximize corporate return on investment.

This is a must-have book for any consultant or organization that is concerned about improving the performance of their organization through improving processes and competencies.”
