  9. 9. Digital Sensei Program Ongoing Measurement and Mastery Knowledgewebb offers an innovative program to ensure your staff continues to develop critical digital skills. Called “Digital Sensei,” we aim to evoke the image of a calm and confident master, who has earned rank by overcoming different challenges and learning sets of practical skills. While there are no punishments for lack of achievement, there are numerous rewards for self-motivated progression. Digital Sensei employs both physical and virtual belt systems. Because the digital skills requirements are different for each job within a workforce, benchmarks are set individually for staff based on job function. Your human resources department and upper management should be able to quantify not just how many hours of training each department/ person has received, but also what important digital skills have been learned and put to use. Knowledgewebb works closely with HR departments to identify each job function within the organization and to develop the best possible list of corresponding digital skills. Knowledgewebb Training | 267-342-4300 | Our Digital Sensei Program was inspired by Aikido, a Japanese martial art that stresses independent discovery and inner strength. Digital Sensei provides a workflow for training, but it also establishes personalized benchmarks and a system for measuring success in staff development. Digital Sensei Program

Knowledgewebb Training | 267-342-4300 | Case study: corporate training CHALLENGE Torstar, one of Canada’s largest corporations, was facing tremendous industry disruption because of social media. Its newspapers, websites and other media brands needed practical skills in engagement, influencer identification and data analysis, as well as basic primers on how various social networks function. Torstar required a company-wide social media curriculum and hands-on training for all staff, from reporters to sales teams to executives.

Torstar is one of Canada’s largest corporations.

Knowledgewebb Training | 267-342-4300 | Amy Webb Cofounder Amy Webb is a digital media futurist and Founder of Webbmedia Group, a digital strategy agency that spots near-term emerging technology trends and develops innovative ideas and strategies for media organizations, Fortune 100 and 500 companies, large nonprofits, universities and government agencies. Clients include American Express, Time Inc, the City of Chicago, the New York Times, the United Nations and many others. Amy is also the Co-Founder of Spark Camp, a next-generation convener that facilitates important conversations on the future of a better society. Fast Company recently profiled Amy and Spark Camp, calling it the ultimate gathering for influencers, where the founders “encourage creative conversations between genius strangers.” Last year, Forbes  named Amy one of the “Women Changing The World,” while the Columbia Journalism Review included Amy on its “20 Women To Watch in Media” list. Amy is the youngest segment of Gen X, which means that she grew up with a computer at home but not the Internet. She was extremely fortunate to have parents who nurtured her early desires to tinker and experiment. As a result, she is uniquely positioned to bridge the divide between digital natives and everyone who got started before the Information Age. While she lives on the bleeding edge of technology, she specializes in relating the changes she sees coming back to business strategy in the present. In 2013, Amy published “Data, A Love Story” (Dutton/ Penguin), a bestselling book about the world of online dating, consumer behavior and finding love via algorithms. Data has since been translated into several languages and has garnered a worldwide audience. Her TED talk about Data is one of the most highly rated of all the TED talks: it’s been viewed more than 3 million times and has been translated into 29 languages.  Management
