Link’spiration™ – A chance to be surprised and inspired by unexpected connections

At year’s end, there is always talk of what was trending and what will be trending. For us, we’d like to share a little of what we’ve been doing and what we’ll keep doing to help all our clients in their efforts to help their people learn.
Social: We are always taking the concept of water cooler talk and making it meaningful and accessible through training and performance support. There is a lot of innovation and work to be done in connecting portals and learning management systems to larger social platforms—we are ready for it.
Analytics: There is a lot of talk about talent and performance analytics. We are talking about it too. We have had breakthroughs with our clients this past year as we’ve designed portals to track and incentivize learners, and we are only getting started.

Information Design: It is not longer if, but when in the decision to take training mobile. We often recommend initial forays into mobile be for performance support. And in order to cater to all devices and all audiences (we make it look easy), we’ve been solving needs by incorporating responsive design into our layered performance support solution. But, we want to design for the experience, not just the device.
