Activities contributing to learning effectiveness:
- pre-work contributes for 26%,
- the learning event itself for 24%,
- the follow up for 50%;
- 10% goes to the preparation,
- 85% to the learning event and
- 5% to the follow.
In the next slide the causes of training failure are displayed: lack of preparation or readiness 20%, bad learning intervention 10%, application environment 70%.
It builds a strong case to have more of our attention and money spent on the afterlife of a course. Actually, the whole idea of learning being an event is not the right approach. People learn through a period over time in which they soak in knowledge and skills, learn to apply them optimally and adapt to their working environment and job.
