Taking a blended approach to developing your managers by integrating a digital hub of on demand learning and development resources will deliver greater business benefits than traditional methods alone. This is because it will:
Reduce training costs. Offering great online management training means that you can reduce the reliance on more traditional (and expensive!) development interventions.
Increase workshop engagement. You can ensure that everybody is fully prepared and on the same page before starting any formal training. They can use the digital hub to complete any pre-course questionnaires, read relevant materials, watch videos or listen to podcasts.
Improve the application of learning in the workplace. Blending formal training with just in time online management training will allow your managers the space and time to reinforce and apply the knowledge they have learned, in a way that works for them.
Enable managers to continually learn and grow. Having a digital hub of learning resources means that your managers can access virtual management training from anywhere, means they can continue with their learning long after the training has finished.
Give you insightful analytics about your managers. You will be able to see what they are learning, where they are excelling and where they are struggling. This will enable you to spot future stars as well identify anyone who needs a little extra help.
