Building capacity to drive innovation and productivity
Did you know that employees typically retain up to 10% of the knowledge taught through traditional learning methods? How much of that knowledge is applied in your workplace? How much of that translates into immediate productivity gains and increased innovation?
Truly effective learning experiences go beyond creating knowledge. They simultaneously build experience and drive change.
ThinkTank is also about building capacity with a focus on accelerating innovation and productivity through immersive learning experiences. These experiences, delivered through traditional, on-line, virtual environments simultaneously deliver knowledge and experience so participants “hit the ground running”. Our methodology increases retention into 90% range while building experience.
Interested in learning more, want to participate, have an educational or training opportunity that could benefit from this approach, or just looking to reduce education and training costs, delivery time, and environmental footprint while improving accessibility, results, and work-life balance?
