Learner Needs Discovery

Learner activities that further your business needs

At Allen, our goal is to constantly evolve our approach to training and learning in order to meet the ever-changing needs of today’s learners while anticipating the needs of tomorrow’s learners. As professionals working for one of the top training companies, it’s important for us to evolve and adapt to meet the changing needs and expectations of our learners.

Let’s face it, without learner engagement the goals of a training initiative will not be met. In the corporate training industry we’ve been faced with a colossal challenge: to successfully engage a new generation of learners.

While having all of the bells and whistles of the latest in social networking may seem exciting, if they don’t further your business objectives, then they are only bells and whistles. With our training consulting services at Allen we are able to first determine what those needs are, and then we match them to types of learner needs. We break learner needs into four distinct types:

  • Information: Convey a message or provide reference
  • Comprehension: Increase knowledge & recall
  • Skills: Develop new skills & apply them in context
  • Performance: Demonstrate mastery by performing simulated work

Most clients are a combination of three or four types of learner needs. Identifying this combination allows us to develop the appropriate activities and modules that impact and motivate learners. We take each learning audience and build activities that will solve their learning needs. As a result, you know you’re engaging learners and achieving training ROI, not just offering them the latest technology. And while Allen will make sure your outcome furthers your needs, we have the technology to back up any solution you settle on, regardless the complexity.
