Better Learning

Next Generation HR is embedded in the business by facilitating strategic renewal, implementation and optimization through learning. We call this Better Learning.

Better Learning combines individual and organisational development to achieve business results. Explore the many ways in which Better Learning solutions can help elevate the impact of new or existing executive development programmes, Learning initiatives or the entire Learning function.

Better Learning is a core building block to establishing a Next Generation HR capability. It provides new ways of application-based learning for improved impact and agility. Better Learning Solutions are line-led, issues-based and output focused, creating a powerful combination of world-class subject matter expertise, innovative programme design and business application methodology.

They are embedded into the business strategy process and integrate individual and organisational learning and change.

Our clients use different levels of Better Learning Solutions to achieve their objectives.

Business School

Improve the business impact of your existing Business School Programmes.

Many companies use traditional Business School Programmes to develop their senior executives. Increasingly companies find these programmes fall short of expectations in delivering real  change and organisational impact.

Our Business School Booster Programmes do just that. They boost the impact and relevance of your existing Business School Programmes by connecting the academic content to your specific business agenda, ensuring application of content by participants to individual needs and business challenges. This can include 3 phases:

  • Pre-programme work
  • Interaction during classroom delivery
  • Post-programme application

This involves close co-operation with your learning team and the respective Business School to guarantee seamless delivery.

The outcome is an improved return on learning through real change.

Our experts will work with you to co-create powerful learning solutions from beginning to end - from business analysis to design and delivery - right through to embedding the new capabilities and measuring their business impact.
