Constant trends and changes have become normalized in this day and age, and is not slowing down anytime soon. The distraction has forced the organizations to outline business transformation plans by keeping all the changes in mind.

The key transformation triggers include seismic development in technology, customer demand, and a swing in globalization where developing economies are making a huge impact, as well as the questions of regulatory compliance.

According to Deloitte, “The business transformation is an opportunity to describe a bold desire which goes beyond the incremental changes, the opportunity of rethinking your business as well as working models to provide breakthrough values.” Further, it makes clear that strategic decisions are incredibly impactful on company growth, functionality, and provides indications of the improvements which need to be made.

Transformation Drawbacks

Too many businesses are mistaking the transformation implementation, with over 50% failing to accomplish their anticipated business objective, according to KPMG.

The drawbacks include:

  • An introvert culture, where information and knowledge aren’t shared
  • Failing to create speed, sustainability, flexibility, and agility
  • Not associating all the employees in the transformation
  • Rating business transformation as a special event
  • Responding to alterations, rather than being proactive as well as ‘holding’ the transformation
  • The final drawback is a huge one. As per a McKinsey survey, the firms who have failed to involve front-line staff and line managers, merely 3% have achieved transformation success.

So, employees are the key to workable culture change. It will not be possible if the organizations do not involve their people in the transformation.

Kick Start Your Career with Microlearning

To grow a successful business career, an all-inclusive approach is required. Some new ways of working need to be discovered across the whole organization. Microlearning can easily do that. Let’s go through some ways how Microlearning can help you kick start your business career.


Results are also a starting point for Microlearning. Using a ‘Results-First Model’, Microlearning asks about what assessable career goal you wish to achieve. What behaviors do you need to study to achieve it? What knowledge do you need to affect the interactive changes?


Microlearning fits into the contemporary business model whereas the workforce becomes dispersed and businesses progressively use freelance talent. It promises consistent and cost-effective learning for everybody, despite location, through devices and PC’s. With flexible and remote work expected to grow, learning which is ineffective on the responsive front will fail to add value to your organization.


Implementation of Microlearning using adaptive platforms like SC Training (formerly EdApp) or Axonify fulfils the modern career requirements. Every employee learning ‘must-have’ knowledge is required to make behaviorial changes at their individual pace. These platforms send extra learning content to learners who require it, whereas speedy learners might race ahead unconstrained. Microlearning utilizes bite-size content as well as game mechanics which make the learning fun and engaging.


Everyday learning of 3 to 5 minutes keeps your knowledge fresh. This fits into your workflow, as well as the potential for knowledge to be accessed on demand. It is important at times when employees are busy, and when it is hard to constantly put time aside for lengthy training.


Microlearning delivers constant and updatable learning and is incredibly proactive. This helps learners to initiate their own career transformation.


Microlearning is cautiously made to implant knowledge deep into learners’ long-term memory, bringing about behavioral changes – the key to driving improvements and transforming cultures. This uses learning methods that are scientifically verified to help the brain take in, retain and apply knowledge appropriately. These are retrieval practice, spaced repetition, and confidence-based valuation.

Expecting, as well as keeping on top of, changes is important if you desire growth in your career today as well as in the coming years. In today’s digital era, it needs tech-powered solutions. Microlearning can reach everywhere to engage everyone. This reaches people quickly and keeps them updated, which is exactly why Microlearning is an ideal fit for career development.
