Formal training alone won't work for everyone
Kirkpatrick Partners
Jim and Wendy watched in fascination the day the baby birds in the nest outside their front door seemed to be preparing to fly. They stood on the edge of the nest, stretched out their wings and flapped them a few times. Some hopped onto a nearby landing. As Jim and Wendy worked, they noticed a flock of birds swirling outside their office windows.

How MOOCs will revolutionize corporate learning and development
Forbes
Before Intel giant McAfee revamped its new-hire orientation, it was over 80 hours long and consisted of roughly 40 hours of pre-work, 5 days of on-site training, and a "robust" syllabus of post-work, meant to be completed at home. But as McAfee’s Senior Director of learning Lori Aberle says, "Once they leave the instructor-led class, that's it, they're done. Let's face it, you will never get them back again!" In addition, the on site training was paced either too fast for some or too slow for others — as classroom lessons by necessity are. The associates teaching them were sometimes torn away at the last minute to close big sales — their primary job, after all.

Inefficiency is a common problem in the corporate workplace, with statistics showing that the average worker wastes 3 hours out of each 8-hour working day — and that's not including breaks and lunches. For business owners, this can be a tricky situation to resolve as the well being of employees has to be carefully managed while ensuring they remain productive.
