THE ADVANTAGE WAY
How to assure measurable performance and business impact from training.
With economic pressures mounting and global competition intensifying, organizations must maximize employee performance, and assure that investments in employee and leadership development are leveraged into bottom-line business results.
Yet studies show that less than 15% of all training has any impact at all on job performance, not to mention bottom-line business results.
BTS provides the answer through its Advantage Way methodology developed by its business partner Prof Rob Brinkerhoff. The Advantage Way provides insights into why many training initiatives fall short in producing the required business impact. It introduces a strategic model for implementing and evaluating training that will allow you to demonstrably leverage training into measurable business results.
