The effect of Promote

What effect and results do you get by using Promote?

5X better effect!

Research shows that on average, only one in six of your participants delivers value after a training program. This means that only 15% of those who complete a training program go out and use their newly acquired knowledge in the workplace. The other five struggle to apply lessons learned and fail to create results for the organization.

So the full value of your program is never realized. The good news is that this can be remedied by using a proper training process and a system that unleashes the hidden potential of your employees. In this way, Promote can increase the number from 1 out of 6 to 5 out of 6 – or 5 times better results! 5 times more participants will thus use their knowledge to drive towards your results.

Traditional training –

Be very motivated to apply their learning

Commitment, responsibility and application

Commitment and accountability drive the business impact of educational programs. Normally, the management’s commitment is the most important driving force for these areas. Compared to other high-impact programs, Promote programs get really high scores on commitment and accountability even when executives are not involved (although high impact is still more common when executives are involved).

The effect of transforming a leadership program

In the autumn of 2020, Promote helped Orkla to transform and digitize their leadership program OLC. With the help of our expertise, platform and methodology, Promote succeeded in transforming a critical leadership program into a highly effective digital leadership program. How was the result? A great success! Read the case of how we proceeded together with Orkla.

Why does it work so well?

Promote has many features, finesses, and benefits that act as the foundation for creating effective training. Everything we do is based on research and science. That’s why we know it works.

Some of the most important tools for creating effective training are built directly into Promote. We use four key concepts that research says are crucial for successful and long-lasting educational impact.

Manager Involvement

Make your managers role models

The manager is key in creating positive results. A manager sets expectations based on business goals, is a support at work and gives invaluable feedback. Promote makes it easier for managers to know when and how to get involved.

In Promote, the manager is involved in the learning journey. Promote supports managers to see when they are needed most, and how best to intervene in the process. Increased managerial involvement creates the conditions for better business performance.

Social Learning

A positive sense of responsibility

Social learning or guided social learning is an engine for change. When course participants try out new behaviors, they want to feel that they are not alone, they want the opportunity to share the experience with others.

Promote makes it easier to share experiences throughout the learning process. Participants inspire, share experiences and best-practices, reflect, collaborate and network with each other to create a deeper learning experience.

Effective training

Tie 70-20 with 10

The basis for sustainable learning is effective education. To manage your time and money, you need to practice the right things, at the right time, in the best possible way.

Promote helps your organisation shift the focus from learning in the classroom environment to application at work. Effective training leads to higher motivation, higher commitment, reduced training costs and better results.

Effect and improvement

Keep your programmes on track

Make sure your learning journey is on track and that your programme is delivering the expected results. In Promote, you have key performance indicators for progress and evaluation of objectives built into the platform and into your programmes.

Promote allows you to steer your programmes towards goals by acting on deviations or encouraging success in real time. The platform is based on recognized methods for the evaluation of education, by Kirkpatrick and Professor Brinkerhoff.
