The Future of Learning is e-learning and your Next Competitive Advantage

2,046 views

Published on

CEOs say learning is important and so do employees, so why aren't more doing it?

The research is clear 84% of global executives ranked employee learning as important. 76% of employees and opportunities for career growth. 87% of millennials say professional development is important.

But that is contrasted by the lack of time. Gallup reports that 70% of the workforce is disengaged and the pace of today's business has most workers feeling overwhelmed which makes traditional in-class learning just another thing to distract them.

That is why we think e-learning is a new source of competitive advantage.

e learning increases employee engagement, raises productivity, and can be done on their own time and schedule. Consider some of these stats:

1) Elearning reduces learning time by at least 25 to 60 percent when compared to traditional learning;
2) 18% boost in employee engagement;
3) Every dollar invested in e-learning results in $30 increase in productivity - that is 30X Return.
4) It increases skill retention better and longer than traditional classroom training.

Advances in technology and learning are coming together to truly transform what and how we learn. As Hood says, “In a world of rapid change and increasing complexity, the winners will be those who can keep their L>C. That is, their rate of learning greater must be greater than the rate of change and greater than the rate of their competition."

The MACPA’s Anticipatory Organization: Accounting and Finance Edition, or AOAF, is the first nano-learning program for CPAs that meets these innovative new learning standards. The program combines three- to four-minute, single-concept videos with rapid application exercises to accelerate learning of complex competencies in less time than traditional CPE programs. It was developed by international futurist and best-selling author Daniel Burrus and recognized by Accounting Today magazine as one of the 2016 Products of the Year in the learning category.

The research is clear 84% of global executives ranked employee learning as important. 7 6% of employees want opportunities for career growth. 87% of millennials say professional development is important. e-learning can be your new source of competitive advantage.

  12. “Even though you access the course through your computer, it is nothing like computer based training (CBT). It was more like watching a number of great TED talks and after each short video, you helped the learner apply the concepts to their role. It changes how you view strategy and leadership by targeting how to think instead of telling you what to think. We were able to distill some very complex concepts, frame them in a manageable and meaningful way, and allow the user to tailor the lessons to their own field. It resonated with me far better than I expected a course delivered through this format ever could. Well done!” - Adam Dalson Major USAF www.blionline.org/ao Anticipatory Organization:Accounting and Finance Edition (AOAF)
  13. AOAF recognized as 2016Top learning Product “Everyone keeps telling accountants that they need to change their focus from the historic and the backward-looking, and to start being proactive and offering future-focused advice – but no one tells them how. The beauty of the Anticipatory Organization program is that it actually gives you a set of tools to harness the hard trends that are shaping the future, and use them to create new value for your firm and your clients.” -  Daniel Hood, Editor-in-Chief, Accounting Today

By making this anticipatory skillset a core strength of our teams, it brings creative and new ideas that make us more valuable to our clients and it creates a game changer for our firm.” -  Joey Havens, CPA Executive Partner, HORNE LLP Top 50 CPA Firm
  23. But wait there’s more… “When associations and other organizations try new meeting formats, it's not just for novelty-it's a step toward better content delivery. What's more, the association brave enough to try a new take on classic offerings gives its members more than information; it gives them an experience and exposure to a new way of doing things.” - Jeff Waddle ASAE Meetings Remix – Time to Rethink the Usual Format Association Now Magazine, Oct 2008

  28. The leaders are the ones who take the first steps “Tom Hood and his colleagues at the Maryland Associa7on of CPAs never fail to amaze and impress. Some7mes you can find them orchestra7ng a flash mob of accountants or pugng down stakes in the virtual world of Second Life, but most recently the associa7on has goaen serious about XBRL… “What message can you learn from the MACPA's XBRL project? First, you can start examining your own client base to see who can benefit from the experiences of MACPA. But the bigger message is, stop wai2ng for other people to tell you what works and what doesn't. Be proac2ve and experiment. That's what new technology is all about. Whether it's cloud technology, IFRS and XBRL, social media, or choreographing a dance – the leaders are the ones who take the first steps.” -- Gail Perry, editor, Accoun7ngWEB 2012 currently editor of CPA Prac7ce Advisor
