Four trainers and four team leaders are in the final stages of ‘Leadershipand Teamwork’, a blended programme showing how facilitation skills can improveteamwork and enhance business performance. “We were keen to pilot a dedicated resource to test whether blendedlearning could provide effective and efficient training while reducing theduration of face-to-face training,” said Sue Cohen, senior trainingmanager at Grant Thornton. “The main benefit is that the e-learningensures the delegates reach a certain level of knowledge before they come to aworkshop,” she said. The pilot group is now engaged in the final part of the programme, whichinvolves action-based learning activities designed to help the group transferthe learning back to the workplace. “The pilot group preferred the blended approach to either puree-learning or face-to-face training,” Cohen said. “The process hasraised cultural issues for Grant Thornton, which need to be overcome – notably,how we create a conducive environment for delegates to access e-learning attheir desks.” www.balancelearning.co.uk Previous Article Next Article Grant Thornton tests for the right balanceOn 1 Mar 2004 in Personnel Today Comments are closed.
