Turning uncontrolled ‘Disruption’ into a Practical Transformation Agenda
We are currently producing a whole series of training Video programs which can be accessed on-line. I love the whole process from working on the key ideas to developing story boards, detailed scripts, graphics and shooting and editing video footage.
Learning is a Core Competence
The competitive differentiator for any ‘high flyer’ rising through the organization is based on the ability to adapt, learn and be flexible by adopting solutions based focus. We support that assertion and deliver the means to achieve those skills.
100,000 Learners for 2020
Our purpose is to examine, analyse, finally distil and communicate our experience, acquired skills and knowledge via a huge data bank, and equip people in all sectors and walks of life, and increase our student base to over 100,000 by the end of 2020.
Managing Disruptive Change
The challenge that faces today’s businesses and organisations is huge in comparison to what has gone before. In order to maintain current performance, you have to be sure that your people are well equipped to not just deal with the demands of today but also to be prepared to take on the challenges of tomorrow. As well as providing structured learning in formal settings we also believe we can support people in solving complex issues with our on-line contribution, including the use of our on-line Learning Management System equipping people to be certified in Business Transformation inclusive of certification in Lean Six Sigma at Yellow, Green and Black Belt levels.
Little Time for Formal Learning
People no longer have the luxury of time to attend courses lasting several days in a far off location. The learning needs to take place here and now – in their business, so they can learn in teams with their colleagues or even at home and in their communities.
We recognise that most people nowadays are time poor, and often the only way they can improve their core skills base and knowledge is to allocate time to access on-line content such as videos, audio, case studies, published articles and best practise handouts, exercises and instant quizzes that capture best practise and useful tips that way.
Global Learning in Change Skills
It seems to be working for us. We have only just started in this process and already we have over 4,000 students online in over 70 countries using our video training. Over 180 have completed certification and a further 340 are working towards certification in Business Transformation and Lean Six Sigma.
Our Learning Message – 100,000 Learners by 2020
Not an immodest target – we plan to organise and distil best practise in learning and change management and inform, debate and discuss communicate experience, core competencies, skills and knowledge via massive shared database to equip people in all sectors and walks of life and increase our student base to over 100,000 in 2 years.
Join and support us on that Journey
We are currently signing-up organizations and key people who want to be part of this learning journey. We already have the software and delivery. We are keen to access leading organizations and their OD Change practitioners and HRD teams for their participation.
Basically, we are inviting organizations to volunteer key staff to undertake research and explore the learning with their teams. We are looking for opportunities to develop further materials to deal with the age of Disruptions (this article may interest you).

Some years ago we committed to a new vibrant project by working with Jeff Whitecross from Quadrille. I have worked with Jeff Whitecross for over 25 years when we started out with VHS training videos on Quality Management and Culture Change.
Most of the videos were of me talking at conferences and running workshops sessions in corporate settings and marketed them as accelerated learning packages in those days. We worked on everything from Leadership Culture Change, TQM to Personal Effectiveness, Group Problem Solving and Team Empowerment.
Issues: Turning uncontrolled ‘Disruption’ into a Transformation Agenda
Our current preoccupation is dealing with the taming the torrent of ‘organizational disruption’ to create a disciplined flow of learning and change based methodologies and on-line and formal learning opportunities and solutions.
