CROSSKNOWLEDGE - L&D CONSULTING
PROBLEM & CHALLENGE
Automation. Artificial intelligence. Fast-paced, dynamic changes & technological advancements in society have now placed learning & development at the top of the executive agenda. Understanding this, CrossKnowledge aims to continue innovating its digital learning solutions based on sound pedagogical research.
How can we help CrossKnowledge future-proof their learning solutions?
8 weeks (April - June 2019)
6 L&D graduate students
Our project team first analyzed CrossKnowledge’s online learning platform by performing a gap analysis to understand what is currently good, needs improvement, and could be developed based on the “High Impact Learning that Lasts” (HILL) framework that incorporates decades of learning-based research. Subsequently, the project team designed a learning journey that captured the gaps and conducted brainstorming sessions to come up with recommendations.
RESEARCH & ANALYSIS
Through beta testing of the learning platform and scoring a validated questionnaire that measured the extent to which the learning platform complied with the HILL framework, the team came together to discuss the findings of our individual analyses. Subsequently, the team put together a final gap analysis comprising all 7 building blocks of the HILL model along with detailed analyses of: (1) the good, (2) needs improvement, and (3) missing:
BRAINSTORMING & DESIGN THINKING
Based on the results of our analysis, the team undertook a 2-day brainstorming session utilizing design thinking principles. First, the team utilized a learner persona to empathize and understand the learners’ challenges and goals. Next, the team summarized the problem and improvement areas for each of the 7 HILL building blocks. Per each building block, the team brainstormed ideas and recommendations using a divergent and convergent brainstorming approach. After converging on agreed upon ideas, a mind map was drawn to summarize the findings. Finally, the team grouped recommendations together based on feasibility and priority levels.
SOLUTIONS & PRESENTATION
Final solutions were delivered to CrossKnowledge via:
Lastly, a presentation was given to a crowd of 50+ including CrossKnowledge to present the findings of our project.
Congratulations to all!
