Using the Successive Approximation Model (SAM) Webinar
February 4, 2015, Noon
Ever feel that your early design relies more on content than the learner’s experience? Do you get to the material review to find your client, internal or external, wants big changes that are difficult to incorporate within the timeline? Do the good ideas come late in process and are then difficult to act on? Do your clients find something left out, want more interaction, or a more game-like experience?
Find out why Allen Interactions uses SAM (Successive Approximation Model), an iterative, agile development process, to create meaningful, memorable, fun, learner-centric experiences and how it drives focus first and foremost on the client’s needed outcomes – not the form of delivery or technology.

February 19, 2015, Noon
Is your company ready to launch a new product? Your sales and support reps might not be. If the product is complex, your customers might not know how to use it, either. Training is a critical part of every product launch, as it helps employees and customers in a variety of roles and locations build the knowledge and skills they need to sell, service and use the new product effectively. This session shows how a curriculum of learning solutions can be used as part of a product launch to solve common business problems. It then connects the big picture goals of a product launch to practical techniques for designing a curriculum that engages learners before, during and after a launch event. We’ll show you how to develop product launch training that drives learner retention… while avoiding common mistakes along the way. Registration

Why Motivating People Doesn’t Work… And What Does Webinar
April 22, 2015, Noon
In nearly every organization, leaders are being held accountable to do something they cannot do-motivate others. Leaders can’t motivate people, because people are already motivated. The question is not if a person is motivated but why. This realization always leads to an epiphany for training and human resource practitioners. HR’s dependence on carrots and sticks to motivate people had become common practice because we didn’t understand the true nature of human motivation. Now we do, thanks to thought leaders like Dan Pink and his blockbuster book DRIVE. But letting go of carrots and sticks has been a challenge. HR leaders know Dan Pink, they know what they’ve been doing doesn’t work, and they know managers aren’t successful at motivating people. But they haven’t understood what their alternatives are. In this webinar, Susan Fowler will help HR leaders understand the viable alternatives to the carrots and sticks on three levels. Registration
