We design and develop training in a variety of modalities, including e-Learning courses, videos, print documents, live workshops, virtual, instructor-led training webinars, gamification, simulations, certifications and assessments, to name a few.
We take a blended approach to learning rather than a didactic approach; and we conduct interactive workshops, which keep participants interested and motivated. Our learning solutions include multiple opportunities for application and reinforcement and are sustainable and measurable.

Principles of Adult Learning
Learning has its earliest roots in cognitive theory, which has been followed by most courses in the past. Now, advances in technology, such as digital simulations, make it possible to construct knowledge through personal experiences instead of traditional learning methods, rather than acquiring it. Simulated scenarios bring training to life and let learning explore in a risk-free environment mirroring the real world.
We adhere to the principles of the ADDIE Model in the design, development and implementation of training programs (e-Learning, workshop, WebEx, etc.). All deliverables include clear, concise learning objectives.
We also align with Clyde Freeman’s best practices for case-based learning, and ensure all case studies:
- Tell a compelling story
- Focus on an interest-arousing issue
- Are set in the past five years
- Create empathy with the central characters
- Include quotations
- Are relevant to the audience
- Are conflict-provoking
- Are decision-forcing
- Have broad applicability
For every training topic, our in-house instructional design team works to anticipate the situations in which learners will use the information. For that reason, we use real world-based scenarios at the center of our instruction. While many training deliverables can be designed using a situated instruction approach, there are certain training deliverables that are designed to impart foundational knowledge. These deliverables, however, should be part of a more comprehensive experience and continuum of learning. Our methodology allows us to deliver a strong, blended solution which increases the impact on performance.
