In a world of exponential change, those who learn fastest will win.

“Speed of learning is your organization’s competitive advantage. The faster your workforce can learn and apply what they learn, the more likely your company will win.”

The key to success lies in learning faster than your competition in order to seize emerging opportunities first. Start-ups apply Lean principles and Agile approaches to develop new products and services: Through a process of iteration, they experiment to determine which challenges matter and which solutions will work for their customers, before they invest significant time and money.

To develop new learning solutions, adopt Lean approaches such as minimum viable products and sprints

“The important thing is not your process. The important thing is your process for improving your process.” (Agile and Lean coach Henrik Kniberg)

When the MVL has evolved into a product ready for implementation, promote and market it to learners by using social media, reminders, influencers and nudges, as well as traditional marketing methods. To measure and demonstrate the solution’s performance, link learning outcomes to key performance indicators such as customer satisfaction, cost reductions, new client acquisition, and so forth.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
