Implementing Successful Training in the Consulting Industry

The Consulting industry is constantly changing and shifting in nature, which is why it is essential to implement a successful training strategy for your employees.

Unexpected events, such as the Great Recession of 2008 and 2009, can have detrimental impacts on the Consulting industry, whereby firms must be resilient and agile to cope with these shocks.

The importance of agility can be grasped through the development of an employee training strategy, which conditions employees to be organised and prepared to move with change. A method of training that provides this opportunity to consulting firms is the practice of microlearning. Mobile learning enables employees to have continual access to new, accurate and relevant information, constantly accessible for users.

Complex concepts and mounds of information presented to learners is broken down into parts, in order for employees to have a complete and holistic understanding of essential content. This is achieved through the breakdown of information into small bursts and exposed to learners in strategic intervals, known as spaced repetition.

This strategy is sustainable and has been proven effective by learning and development experts globally. For its maximum success, it is crucial to properly implement microlearning by adopting an mLearning LMS, such as SC Training (formerly EdApp). An LMS with a good authoring tool will provide a plethora of benefits to users in the form of unique features. SC Training (formerly EdApp) provides users with a vast library filled with various ready-made templates, only requiring you to import your great content! Our templates are designed to be interactive, providing employees with an immersive learning environment in which they are able to thrive and flourish in their respective roles.

The Consulting industry never sleeps, reinforcing the cruciality of giving employees access to mounds of information, which is in digestible form and presented in bite-sized chunks. Its form eradicates the possibility of cognitive overload, which refers to the inability of humans to absorb all presented information. It is fact that the average human being cannot withhold more than 3-5 new pieces of information at any given time, emphasising the need for the gradual education of employees.
