Your Success depends on Faster Learning
2010/10/05 Leave a comment
When there is chaos in alsmost any social or commercial situation it is the fast learners that succeed, those who can quickly assess the current state of affairs and determine where to focus their resources, skills, time and attention. It is no secret that your success depends on your customers learning faster and if they succeed by learning faster, then you will succeed too.
Change, New Products, Mergers and Acquistions
Whenever there is market change or chaos it is important to understand that customers will demand new value from products that they consume and the producers or re-sellers that provide them. This is natural and in order to accomodate the needs of your customers you will have to tune existing product or deliver new products or buy a company or merge with another company.
Any or all of these processes demand high levels of learning for success.
An idea requires that its creator learn and in order for an idea to be assessed and manifested in a commercial form more people must learn about it and how to blend it into their existing processes, structures and relationships. Indeed the process of manifesting and idea into a product and taking it to product requires more time at learning than manufacturing.
The process of marketing and sales is actually the trasmission of learning from seller to buyer.
How we learned to Learn Fast
We learned about learning over seven years from self-directed adult learners who, in our experience, align objectives to content, tools and measures to learn quickly and effectively. We then we combined our learnings with commercial internet marketing software and techniques normally used to align customers, products and content.
The SpeedSynch fast learning methodology that resulted from our work with self-directed adult learners focuses on aligning people, content, tools and technology when and as needed to facilitate learning.
Alignment is the core value delivered by SpeedSynch software and techniques though the approach is unique to traditional academic learning methods as we avoid traditional command and control perspectives in order to facilitate self-directed learning.
This is what we do.
SpeedSynch Fast Learning
Since 2003 SpeedSynch’s fast learning classes have been delivered and refined into a proven process that consistently delivers high value learner results by explicitly using facilitators to broker expertise in learner groups.
It is our practice to encourage learners to learn our fast learning process to acquire new skills quickly and then deliver the same skills to other learners and three factors are at the core of the SpeedSynch fast learning methodology;
SpeedSynch fast learning consistently delivers excellent results as facilitators broker expertise and content within groups to achieve desired outcomes while group members simultaneously learn and work.
Neuropersona tools help learners view content, tools and measures from multiple learner perspectives to accelerate learning. Neuropersona perspectives employ semantic concepts combined with analytical perspectives that combine numbers and stories.
SpeedSynch internet marketing techniques employ fractal perspectives to increase the value of corporate performance analysis, business and competitive intelligence, product and business model innovation and scenario analysis to mitigate risk mitigation and broker value. The unique element of SpeedSynch fast learning is the internet marketing software and internet marketing techniques used to align learners, content and tools to speed up learning according to their objectives and measures.
SpeedSynch Fast Learning is Proven
SpeedSynch delivers accelerated learning value by employing the principles of Andragogy formulated by adult learning pioneer Malcolm Knowles, who emphasized the self-directed focus and the tendency of adult learners to take responsibility for individual or group decisions.
SpeedSynch Learning Platform
This is a sample of what our learners achieve with our SpeedSynch learning platform, and this is an overview of our approach–
Facilitators help adult learning groups assemble according to need and introduce topic frameworks, content, tools and provide guidance as the groups simultaneously learn and work. Our facilitators provide ‘blended’ guidance on-site, telephone or via the internet and learners employ any facilitator reviewed tools and techniques according to their objectives and the content encountered during their group learning journey.
SpeedSynch accelerated learning leverages Social Media platforms which are now the preeminent content creation spaces. Learners create content as they navigate digital spaces according to their objectives and perspectives.
Technology employed during the learning sessions may be very simple such as sketch pads and white boards or complex like computers, browsers and other software applications or decision support systems available to or requested by clients.
SpeedSynch Learning Groups
Groups of 4 to 6 people may be combined in a cluster of 3 to 4 groups.
Typically a topic is set externally for learners by employers or community organizations or learning services providers. The learning approach and content focus is set by learner groups created with members whose skills and experience complement each other, their objectives, content and tools.
Learner groups learn a topic framework, review content, tools, techniques and examine associated best practices related to the topic. Facilitators or other group members may contribute additional material as group learning proceeds. Groups simultaneously learn and work towards creating an analysis in the form of a document or material to support an oral presentation delivered at the end of the class sessions.
The topic framework is a ‘sandbox’ or flexible container that holds examples of desired learning outcomes, reports or presentations, learning content, tools, resources, a learning process outline and class schedule. Learning presentations are delivered by groups to the facilitator and class members.
Facilitators deliver a learner value proposition for the learning topic and course objectives, the topic framework and help assemble learning groups. Facilitator guidance and commentary is offered as needed for content or tools to support group learning and ‘home work’ or other preparation.
