Corporate Experience

Below is a sample of relevant work experience, which we have gained over the past 15 years. We invite you to review this section to see how closely your training challenge is to some of our other clients even though your industry may be different.

CLIENT: Avnet Computers - February 1992
CHALLENGE: Develop an innovative approach for increasing business opportunities.
SOLUTION: Develop an interactive performance support tool to allow potential clients to identify, select and assemble computer systems that meet their needs, and generate a purchase order.

CHALLENGE: Propose a strategy for the development and promotion of a Learning Center.

CLIENT: Canadian Forces College - November 2001
CHALLENGE: Canadian Forces College provides a nine-month instructor-led "Command and Staff (CSC)" course to 88 officers per year. Recent studies recommended an extension of the program to 390 officers.  Maintaining traditional delivery options was no longer viable. The challenge was to determine the most cost effective method of delivering training to meet growing needs.
SOLUTION: Conduct a detailed analysis of the CSC course. Evaluate the feasibility and costs of delivering the nine-month instructor-led course using traditional, distance learning and blended (residential with distance learning) approach. 
RESULTS: A blended delivery option (residential with web based training and mentoring) was recommended. The recommended option allowed the Canadian Forces College to use existing facilities - with minor modifications - for the delivery of training. In addition to over $22 million in up-front savings for a new school and residence extension, annual recurring costs were reduced by $6 million, while reducing the number of additional staff by 30%.

In addition, standards for the design, development and management of technology-based courses, changes to existing processes and a communication plan were recommended.
RESULTS: A detailed document (blue print) that outlines success factors, up-front investment, annual costs, resources and changes required to successfully implement the Virtual Learning Environment. Funding for the proposed plan was received and implementation is presently underway. 
 
CLIENT: Canadian International Development Agency [CIDA] - July 1999
CHALLENGE: Develop a strategy for the delivery of informatics training to CIDA's employees abroad.
