The Big Questions Answered:

How does the Performance Pathway Builder work? What can the Performance Pathway Builder be used for? Not every organisation has the desire, or indeed the means, to launch itself straight into the online arena with a massive fiscal commitment. Some organisations may have already begun the journey, blending their learning and development programs into the online arena – while still thinking about how they can develop their learning programs more effectively. Learning Technology is difficult in the sense that as each year passes the options become more and more varied. With varied options comes the need for flexibility and with flexibility comes the need for more of a “building block” approach to portal thinking. The days when organisations simply looked at Learning Technology to provide a platform whereby they could deliver some eLearning and other online initiatives designed to support the general L&D requirement, are long since passed. Learning Technology providers should now be offering highly cost effective, flexible solutions which are quick to implement and intuitive to use. Key to TWM’s Performance Pathway Builder is that it has been developed and tested in partnership with some of TWM’s leading blue

chip clients, paving the way for a wider market who have the need to provide rapid pathway solutions in areas such as on boarding and induction, getting job ready, compliance training, CPD, technical training, career development and leadership development. Are pathways easy to create? TWM’s Performance Pathway Builder is very straightforward to use. You can deliver and deploy a learning solution to your target audience quickly and efficiently. Pathways are also easy to update, allowing you to maximise change opportunities. How many pathways can I create? You can start off with 10 pathways, but you can have more! The Performance Pathway Builder grows with your business and your needs. How do learners access a pathway? TWM provide you with a ‘portal entry’ and you can make pathways available to everybody or to specific groups. Pathways are web based and can be accessed online via PC or mobile device. They’re your pathways, but TWM take care of all the hosting.

How easy is a pathway for the user? Each pathway provides a clear and manageable route through a subject, giving the learner the opportunity to put everything in one place. Your pathway can be split into easy, manageable sections. You can create a Pathway Introduction and ‘editable’ roll overs for each piece of content allowing you to give tips to the user. What content can I include in my pathways? The Performance Pathway Builder tool provides you with an up to the minute solution for suggesting and tracking on the job activities, informal learning as well as also facilitating the formal. You can link in your TWM hosted learning content such as videos, articles, workbooks, exercises and audio clips or you can link to tasks that the user has to complete as part of their pathway, perhaps on an external website. This provides increased variety and flexibility for the learner and the creator allowing all types of learning to be captured. There are no limits to the amount of content that you can assign to a pathway section. What if my content is progressive? Simple! You can lock down individual sections so that they’re only revealed upon completion of the last section.

How do I know if content has been completed? TWM’s Performance Pathway Builder supports a culture of self-paced development and most of the content that you link to your pathway can be auto-verified by the user as read, watched, listened to or done. Some content types however, can be set for manager sign-off and some (such as exercises) require the learner to have successfully gone through the material. Can I review learner progress? There is full tracking of progress for the individual, their line manager and the L&D Manager to allow each group to measure progress, understand what has been done and what is left to be completed and report high level results to the business. How do I recognise more important aspects of the Pathway content? Each piece of content can be weighted from 0.1% upwards, to make up the total for the pathway. This allows you to recognise effort by assigning importance to certain pieces of content. Some content can be nonmandatory, allowing you to provide extra resources to people who want to learn more. Certificates? Yes…the Pathway Builder can award bespoke certificates TWM’s Performance Pathway Builder can automate the process for recognising successful completion. You can assign certificates to your pathways that are customised for your business. Upon 100% completion of a pathway, a user can be presented with a ‘Congratulations’ message (editable by you, of course) and an option to download their personalised certificate.

What can the Performance Pathway Builder be used for? We’d like to think we know a little about the issues L&D professionals face in today’s L&D environment. Many of them are solved by TWM’s Performance Pathway Builder “The Economic Pressure” It’s not always easy to get the strategic buy in commitment to L&D initiatives. Budgets seem constantly to be heading downwards – ‘required needs’ are heading upwards. Increasingly, the emphasis is on getting people up to speed quickly and effectively, focusing on talent development and reducing recruitment costs. The Performance Pathway Builder will solve this problem “The Speed of Change” Your people need to rapidly embrace and understand the changes that your organisation is experiencing – not fight against it. Your organisation needs to build on its agility and speed of adoption of change.

The Performance Pathway Builder will offer real support “We All Learn Differently” Nobody denies that the rise in ‘social learning’ is having a profound effect on how people are developing. There is a real appetite for personal growth, but how do we get the most from social learning for the benefit of both the individual and the business? How can we measure ‘on the job’ learning activities to demonstrate success and ROI into the learning process? TWM’s Performance Pathway Builder measures learning “We Need to Motivate and Keep People” Lack of skills in the workplace is at the heart of the L&D mission, but learning initiatives need to motivate as well as develop people. TWM’s Performance Pathway Builder motivates

“We Need to Make Sure Our Line Managers are With Us” Getting line managers involved in supporting their learners is critical. They need to encourage, promote and support their people. TWM’s Performance Pathway Builder actively supports and engages line managers “We Have Different Learning Needs In Different Places in the Country” Tailoring learning to just one person’s role or level offers huge benefits and so does the ability to do this anywhere, at any time and in any language. Online learning is not only TOTALLY accessible – it reduces the environmental impact of learning and development as well. TWM’s Performance Pathway Builder ensures social, formal and informal learning can be accessed anytime and from any place.

Customer Engagement Behaviour Analysis

...a powerful tool for increasing the performance of any Sales Team

Customers respond positively to behaviour that shows the salesperson understands the customers’ values Launched just 18 months ago, TWM have been successfully marketing their Customer Engagement Behaviour Analysis tool with impressive results. Here TWM CEO, Philip Purver, explains in a little more detail, how the online tool is deployed into a sales team to make a massive and measurable contribution to increased sales success.

The way we behave exhibits values, beliefs and priorities, and dictates how people respond to us. The ability to adapt sales behaviours to a variety of different sales situations is key. Customers respond positively to behaviour that shows the salesperson understands the customers’ values, beliefs and priorities. This has been demonstrated time and time again in sales training sessions.

It’s important for a salesperson to rapidly identify the needs and drivers of the person to whom they are selling. They need to be able to adjust their behaviour to respond to these needs and drivers, if they want to achieve higher sales. TWM’s Customer Engagement Behaviour Analysis (CEBA) tool has been successfully used with companies such as HP and Europcar and proved this.

For example, customers may value attention, personalised service and quality. In this type of situation, sales behaviours that focus almost entirely on emphasising the benefits of a product are unlikely to be successful.

Sales situations differ, customers differ, customer needs and expectations differ. Sales coaching and development, needs to be focused on showing people what to do in various situations. Most people can behave in ways, even highly atypical of them, for short periods of time. This is the key to successful selling and adapting to the changing world. If your organisation needs greater sales success - CEBA should be considered.

However, the customer may start to see the salesperson as someone who shares their values if the salesperson shows behaviours like: • Being systematic, checking to avoid mistakes and risks • Being thorough and careful and paying attention to detail • Acting with integrity • Documenting what the customer says and ensuring proper answers The two of them appear to be on the same

wavelength and the customer is far more likely to want to do business with the salesperson. Another customer may believe that service should be taken for granted and may principally be concerned about what the salesperson can do to help solve some of the problems in their business. The appropriate behaviours in this type of situation may include: • Investing time to understand the underlying nature of the customer’s business • Researching problems or opportunities of which the customer may not be aware • Actively encouraging customers to talk about their business issues • Analysing the customer’s business processes Sales behaviour can be measured and so can customers values and expectations. Such measurement shows where the behaviour is congruent with what the customer values and where it isn’t. We often see sales people behaving in a way that is poles apart from what their customers’ value. For example, perhaps the customer values personal help, time spent to understand personal and business needs, creatively researching solutions to problems and

seeking opportunities and the salesperson, oblivious to these needs, continues offering the latest off-the-shelf product in a technical and impersonal way. For more information on how to enable your sales teams to sell more successfully by measuring your sales teams behaviour and that of your customers, please email info@theworkingmanager.com

Good News for public sector training! Training for Public Sector bodies, as required – without the need to tender on each occasion is the big win from Premier Partnership’s public sector framework contract. TWM are working closely with Premier Partnership, one of the UK’s leading Public Sector training providers, with their recently awarded Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO) Managed Training Services framework. TWM will make an extensive catalogue of learning available to the public sector via a bespoke built learning portal. As one of the UK’s largest public sector procurement organisations, ESPO negotiates a range of EU compliant contract arrangements, aimed to get customers dealing directly with nominated suppliers. Premier Partnership specialise in public sector training at a national level and the company has been awarded this framework contract, which will enable public sector bodies

to call off training as required, without the need to tender on each occasion. The nature of this contract means all public sector bodies are free to use the service without any further public procurement exercises. The service will provide organisations with all elements of their learning needs through the managed supplier model. Premier Partnership will act as the managed service for the contract, as well as managing the quality of the service. They will provide a proportion of the training, with the remainder being provided by a rich mix of training organisations with a track record in supplying learning to the public sector. Hosting a reception for senior public sector training professionals at London’s Learning Technologies Show, David Pearson, Marketing Director at Premier Partnership said: “The framework will enable local authorities and the wider public sector to save substantial sums from their training

Tracy Capaldi-Drewett, Commercial Director at The Working Manager said “TWM’s portal will ensure that Premier Partnership can meet the specific needs of the public sector and enable learners, their managers or learning leads to quickly search, identify and book on to a range of public and organisational specific courses or request specific events”. Initially intended for use by local authorities within the UK, the Framework Agreement will be open to all eligible public bodies in the UK. These will include organisations such as Public Health, Police, Fire and Rescue Services, Registered Charities and any Central Government Departments and their agencies wishing to access the Framework.

• How many other organisations are interested in using the framework? • What is the cancellation policy? • When is the Learning Management System (LMS) booking system ready to view? • Will I be able to access eLearning directly through the LMS? • Who will be able to access the LMS and book learning? • How will available learning be presented on the LMS?

Major Benefits of using the Framework • Quick & Easy To Use: This Framework is already EU/UK Compliant. The procurement work is done, so there’s no need to run a full EU tender. • Suppliers: All listed on the framework are assessed during the procurement process for their financial stability, track record, experience and technical & professional ability, before being awarded a place on the framework. • It’s Free: There is no charge for using the framework.

• Pre-agreed Conditions: No need to worry about what terms & conditions to use, they’ve all been pre-agreed under the framework and will underpin all orders placed. • Cost Efficiencies and Savings: Directly and indirectly, by eliminating the need to deal directly with a multiplicity of specialist training organisations. • High level of management information available: Helping to improve budgetary information and allowing engagement activity to feed into decisions around corporate training policies, strategies etc.

Who can use the ESPO framework? The framework is available for use nationally by any public sector body in the UK including but not limited to: • Schools & Academies • Local Authority Establishments

• Police & Emergency Services • NHS & HSC Bodies • The third sector including unions and Registered Charities
