Video: Applying the A-model to a business problem

Posted by Julie Delazyn

In a recent post on his own blog,  Questionmark CEO Eric Shepherd offered some insights about the 70+20+10 learning model, in which social and informal learning play key roles in knowledge transfer and performance improvement.

The A-model, developed by Dr. Bruce C. Aaron, helps organizations make the most of all types of learning initiatives – both formal and informal — by providing an effective framework for defining a problem and its solution, implementing the solution, and tracking the results.

Eric’s post, A-model and Assessment: The 7-Minute Tutorial, notes the great feedback we have received in promoting awareness of the A-model and includes a brief video that walks viewers through a business problem  and explains how to approach it using the A-model.

You can check out this video – by Questionmark’s Doug Peterson – right here. If you’d like more details, you can download the white paper we collaborated on with Dr. Aaron: Alignment, Impact and Measurement with the A-model.
