LEARNING SYSTEM FEATURES

1. NEXT GENERATION LEARNING SYSTEM We thoroughly reviewed other best in class training systems from both large and small companies so that we could get a baseline to develop our next generation Anticipatory Organization™ Learning System.
2. RIGOROUS INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN We retained a nationally recognized instructional designer to work with our team to ensure rapid application and learning.
3. WE TEACH AT ALL LEVELS OF THE COGNITIVE DOMAIN Unlike the vast majority of online learning systems that only teach in the lower levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy of the Cognitive Domain (remembering and understanding), our lessons have the learner use all of the higher levels which include applying, analyzing, evaluating and creating.
4. RAPID APPLICATION ACTIVITIES The sooner a lesson is applied to everyday activities; the more it becomes a part of the learner’s everyday mindset. After each short 3-5 minute single concept video, the learner applies what they have learned to the work they do regardless of their position.
5. RESULTS DRIVEN LEARNING Benefits will be seen immediately, because the learner has to apply each lesson to the work they do. Learners don’t have to wait until they finish the entire course before they see results.
6. WE DIRECTLY LINK PLANNING TO INNOVATION A direct result of learning to be anticipatory is that it fosters two key areas of innovation; Everyday Innovation–where individuals learn to predict and pre-solve problems with inventive solutions, and Transformational Innovation–where individuals and teams learn to turn predictable disruption into game-changing advantages.
7. COLLABORATIVE TEAM LEARNING Most learning systems have learners work alone and take tests to check their retention of content. In addition to testing at all levels of the cognitive domain, our system has the learner apply their knowledge outside of the system by meeting and collaborating with their teams.
8. EMBEDDING AN ANTICIPATORY MINDSET We are teaching a new competency, the ability to Anticipate, that elevates decisions and accelerates results.

from under the weight of uncertainty and disruption; understand and apply complex ideas; and engage the future

“Anticipation. I’ve never really thought about it being a skill you can learn. It gave me great hope for this profession. How do you take people who are not naturally futuristic, visionary people and give them that skill. Up until now we’ve heard you had to hire someone as a consultant. Today I heard, ‘You can do this! You’ve got to put time into this, you have to put work into it, you have to change the way you think. But this is something you can do.’ Anticipation is absolutely something you can do and use in your firm.
