Factors of success in corporate training

After an interesting introduction by the Chairman and by Cornelia Kunert from Zurich Insurance, Mujibor de Graaf held an engaging presentation on key success factors in corporate training. According to Coursepath’s co-founder and CEO, three main factors are to be considered to deliver relevant training to employees and partners:

  • Acknowledge that people learn differently nowadays
  • Prevent learner procrastination
  • Do not forget course developers’ needs

Learning at work does not follow the traditional way any more, where a concept of “More information = more motivation” was followed.
