The Challenge

Over the last few years, transitioning from traditional instructor-led classroom training to a virtual and eventually a hybrid model posed significant challenges for organisations worldwide. This is the story of how a leading global corporation navigated the complexities of managing diverse training programs, assessments, and hands-on practice sessions across multiple vendors. The company sought solutions to the challenges of consolidating training records, ensuring effective skill application, and providing comprehensive learning audits. Implementing a ‘learning operating system’ transformed their approach to training, enabling seamless integration, tracking, and assessment of learning outcomes, thereby significantly improving deployment efficiency and reducing the rate of skill application rejection by 45%.


Navigating Training Complexity: The Challenge of Unified Learning Metrics

The transition to hybrid training models, which got a huge boost post-COVID-19, brought to light the inefficiencies in tracking and assessing the training outcomes of employees. The organisation faced several key challenges.

Fragmented Training Records

With training delivered by multiple vendors, there was no consolidated data on training attendance, assessments, or hands-on practice. This was making it difficult to evaluate the full scope of employee learning.  

Inconsistent Hands-on Practice Tracking

Despite recognising the importance of practical application, there was no system in place to monitor or evaluate the extent of hands-on practice undertaken by employees across different training sessions.

Limited Assessment of Training Effectiveness

Reliance on attendance and basic assessment scores failed to measure an employee’s ability to apply learned skills effectively, leading to uncertainties in deployment decisions and skill application on real projects.


Strategising a Unified Training Solution: The Approach

In response to these challenges, the organisation sought a solution that could streamline the management of training programs, consolidate data across multiple vendors, and provide a reliable measure of training effectiveness. Techademy proposed its advanced ‘learning operating system’, capable of organising Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) and Instructor-Led Training (ILT) from multiple sources, integrating features for:

 
  1. Unified Training Records: a single platform to record and access data from all training sessions, including attendance, assessments, and practice hours, regardless of the vendor.
  2. Homogenised Assessment and Practice Monitoring: standardisation of assessment methods and tracking of hands-on practice to ensure consistency in evaluating employee skills and readiness for deployment.
  3. Comprehensive Learning Audits and Recommendations: the ability to generate detailed reports and recommendations for deployment based on a holistic view of an employee’s training journey, including learning, practice, assessment, and application.

A Seamless Solution for Training Management

The operating system solution was meticulously designed to address each facet of the training management challenge:

Centralized Data Management

By creating a unified platform, the organisation could now efficiently track and manage training records from multiple vendors, ensuring all data, including attendance, assessment scores, and hands-on practice hours, were easily accessible.

Standardised Assessments and Lab Environments

The platform provided standardised assessment tools and homogenised lab environments for practical exercises, enabling consistent evaluation criteria across all training programs.

Real-time Tracking and Recommendations

Advanced analytics within the platform allowed for real-time tracking of learning progress and the generation of detailed recommendations for employee deployment based on comprehensive training outcomes rather than just attendance or basic assessment scores.


Impact

The implementation of Tecahdemy’s operating system impacted the organisation’s training and development process in several ways.

  • 45% enhanced Deployment Efficiency: With a more accurate assessment of employee skills and practical application, the organisation saw a 45% reduction in deployment errors, ensuring employees were better prepared for their roles.
  • Unified Learning Experience: Employees benefited from a cohesive learning profile that consolidated all training activities, assessments, and practice sessions, enhancing their overall training experience.
  • Optimised Resource Allocation: The standardisation of training assessments and labs facilitated cost optimisation across training programs, allowing for a more effective allocation of learning and development resources.
  • Data-Driven Decision Making: The L&D department gained valuable insights from comprehensive training records, enabling data-driven decisions for future training initiatives and skill development strategies.


By implementing this comprehensive operating system, the organisation not only streamlined its training management processes but also significantly improved the effectiveness of its learning and development initiatives, setting a new standard for corporate training programs.
