The forgetting curve
Not only is the majority of training in today’s companies ineffective, but the purpose, timing, and content of training is flawed.
Education often isn’t so much about learning useful job skills, but about people showing off, or “signaling.” We often learn the wrong things, at the wrong time and we quickly forget the content. Indeed, if new information isn’t applied, we’ll forget about 75% of it after just six days.
What needs to change?
Today’s fast-moving business landscape calls for organizations and their people to adapt to changing circumstances rapidly, and to always be learning. Lean learning supports the adaptability that gives organizations a competitive advantage in today’s market. It’s about learning the core of what you need to learn, applying it to real-world situations immediately, receiving immediate feedback and refining your understanding, and then repeating the cycle.
Lean learning ensures that employees not only learn the right thing, at the right time, and for the right reasons, but also that they retain what they learn.
