Corporate learning and development is a crucial aspect to a company’s ability to grow and keep up with the times. New processes, business methods and technology are invented on a nearly daily basis in the 21st century, and keeping up has become part of the ecosystem of business to a point where it’s an industry and science all to itself.
There are a lot of obstacles to overcome with this process, such as strategy, cost effectiveness and the like, but one of the problems that no analyst or strategist seems to want to address is the need for tools to aid in the learning process beyond the abstract.
This has resulted in learning remaining relegated to the domains of literature, pseudo-classroom environments and tedious training sessions with rigid guidelines. The truth of the matter is that few people really learn practically from these methods, with a more hands-on approach being the most viable, especially for busy professionals who haven’t time for traditional study and classrooms. Fail to mention, these archaic methods are time consuming in an environment where time is indeed money.
In the spirit of this, we propose an alternative for corporate learning and development which resolves this conundrum. On top of solving the learning method itself, this will also resolve in part the strategy and cost of implementation issues as well.
Meet WalkMe, the all-in-one tutorial creation suite. WalkMe is an interpreter-based software platform designed for point-and-click programming and design, and for integration into web services such as SaaS platforms and websites.
WalkMe integrates natively into the web architecture, as native web components such as AJAX and HTML5, making it compatible with any given browser or operating system without and muss or fuss to get it operational. So, the first issue of implementing the tutorials and hands-on training is resolved, as pretty much anyone can design tutorials with tis simple yet powerful system, and pretty much anyone can interact with it, due to its cross platform nature.
Second, WalkMe’s native integration grants it the unique ability to interact directly with whatever structure is hosting it, meaning that it can directly and automatically demonstrate a given process for a user. This can also be partial, meaning that as a user tries to learn a process, it can fill in the gaps, smartly, until the user is completely versed in operating the given demonstrated process themselves.
This hands-on learning ability, with WalkMe’s infinitely complex or infinitely simple scope of function, makes the learning process generally more accessible and straightforward for most people in an organization, and allows them to continue to get work done while they learn, as WalkMe can live inside actual live software.
WalkMe’s intelligence allows it to also smartly report progress of individuals or collective groups as they learn, so leadership can determine where extra time is needed in training in an organic and dynamic way, without rigid metrics or grading systems needing to be implemented.
With WalkMe’s programmability, all kinds of organizational learning models can be implemented to levels never before possible, especially systems like gamification.
On a cost efficiency perspective, WalkMe’s affordability on top of quality means your organization’s learning process will have the ROI accountants have longed for, and an effectiveness unparalleled by traditional training techniques.
With the deprecated learning methods out of the way, WalkMe makes planning the strategies much easier as well, reducing the issues with man hours and differences in learning techniques. As said before, it also compliments to extended levels many new learning models, allowing strategists to plan new hybrid models or existing models into their training strategies with fewer hang ups than ever before.
In short, WalkMe is the answer to implementing training with expertise, allowing for various learning capacities within an organization, and being very cost effective and efficient when conducting the previously monstrous task of corporate learning and development.
