Practical Training Transfer Quarterly Review

Published: Thursday, August 1, 2019

Every quarter at PTT™ we summarize all of the social activity we have been doing and review events, books, training, and anything else which can be useful to the L&D community. In this quarter's edition we have:

    1. ATD ICE session summary - Goodbye learning events. Hello high performance learning journeys
    2. Focus on Performance session summary by Promote
    3. A review Rob Brinkerhoff's latest book - Improving performance through learning
    4. A review of our experience of taking Will Thalheimer's latest course - Performance-focused smile sheets

We've also included our learning transfer benchmark research. It provides some interesting insights into how companies deploy learning transfer to get great application results from learning. It's worth taking a look at that if you're thinking of using more learning transfer or starting out creating learning journeys. 

If you like what you see in the benchmark research, then you can also contribute and get access to all our free online content, and a personalized report showing how your industry uses learning transfer. All information you supply will be confidential, and we won't ask you to supply company, client or participant details.

Thanks, and have a great day.

About the Author

Ian Townley partners with senior HR and division managers to find ways to make learning as effective and efficient as possible, creating strategies to overcome costly learning application barriers. When these strategies are implemented, they can justify investment in learning and demonstrate how and why learning transfer can improve business results.

Ian believes that learning application problems are not the same nor equal. It’s surprising though, he says, how often learning strategies can slip into the common misconception that one type of learning transfer solution solves all problems. Instead, he works with learners to develop a bespoke design approach that focuses on their needs and overcomes learning barriers to deliver the promises and potential of learning for the learner, their team, and the organization.
