Maxmize the Impact of Learning
by J. (Jay) Bahlis, Ph.D., Eng.


On February 2nd, Nancy Williams (with Booz Allen Hamilton) and I presented a paper at the ASTD Techknowledge 2007 Conference on strategy used by Booz Allen to meet the training needs of its expanding workforce – expected to reach 20,000 by 2008. The abstract with a link for downloading the paper are presented below along with a long overdue announcement of our new web site


Maximize the Impact of eLearning


Like the rest of the training industry, Booz Allen faces the trend of “if you build it, nobody comes.” Although the classroom version of the course “Developing an Award Winning Proposal” has a six-month waiting period, low registration for the online version, which was well received by participants, caused cancellation of several of the online sessions.


To meet the challenge of developing e-learning training that addresses their global expansion and also attracts and retains learners, Booz Allen conducted an in-depth analysis of target groups and training programs as well as the costs and ROI of alternative training. By understanding the costs and potential impact of blended delivery options, Booz Allen was able to make informed decisions on training choices—avoiding costly errors, making the most of resources, and maximizing the impact of e-learning programs by focusing on training initiatives that develop skills aligned to business goals.
