Short Attention Spans and Slashed Budgets: How to Prepare Today’s Enterprise Application End Users

Today’s learners (yes, especially millennials!) demand more. In fact, they demand LESS – less formal training, less structure, less restrictions on how they consume content to effectively do their job. The days of time-consuming formal training have passed. End users today demand an understanding of the business concepts, and knowledge of WHERE TO GO for the answers. In this session, we will discuss the business drivers for this need, as well as software tools that manage the entire knowledge lifecycle from Authoring to Review/Approval to Editing to Deployment to Online Help to Analytics.

This topic focuses on reengineering an organization’s knowledge lifecycle for today, and into the future. Software tools to facilitate this change will also be demonstrated.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to provide a hyper-realistic learning experience without the high cost of a live training environment
  • How to support the 70:20:10 learning model to empower end users to help themselves
  • How to consolidate all phases of knowledge management and distribution for the application lifecycle across one platform
