What Gets Measured Gets Managed.

Training

Teaching the tricks of the trade from how best to perform specific disciplines, to establishing processes in line with best practices and raising corporate maturity to a higher level requires knowledge and most of all know-how – unless of course you are looking to take the long path, learning all from scratch, through all the failures, some of us have already been through for you.

How training can help you

Reading a book can give you knowledge, but transforming that knowledge into know-how requires training, experience or preferably both.

How we help you

We are helping a lot of our clients in creating their policies, procedures, instructions, internal standards and controls. As a whole, this constitutes their governance framework, giving them the means to be accountable, to document and show that they are in control and comply.

We can help you in defining the right governance framework for your specific company, and once it is ready, we can help you implement, monitor and maintain it in the organisation.

Learning anything will normally take you through a set of generic steps or levels. Such levels could be described using Bloom’s Taxonomy, covering your ability to:

  1. Remember
  2. Understand
  3. Apply
  4. Analyse
  5. Evaluate
  6. Create

How far you would need to go depend on your role and how you are going to be using it. Some topics, might be advanced, and just being able to remember them when they become relevant, could be our objective, as it helps you focus on what you need to learn more in depth now, and only start looking at the more advanced stuff once it is relevant, and you have gotten some experience using the more basic skills.

In all our training we define clear learning objectives, and plan accordingly. This enable us to make the training relevant to the employee’s or manager’s job, role and level of prior experience. We doing this with a strong focus on usability, the employee’s and manager’s ability to start using what they have learned straight away.

What the results will be

Establishing training of your employees and managers may be a big push enabling you to get your processes up and running. Starting new processes like Enterprise Risk Management can be a heavy and tricky task.

E.g. would having your organisation’s managers trained in basic risk management disciplines and helping them integrating this into their regular tasks, give you a huge push in the direction of getting risk management up and running throughout the company.
