Alchemy Drive is an LTP which stands for Learning Transfer Platform. In a Chief Learning Officer magazine article, Robert O Brinkerhoff describes an LTP as “a cloud-based software platform that wraps custom-designed interactions and learners’ engagements around and into more traditional employee development workshops and seminars. This creates a learning/performance improvement journey for each participant.”
It is a good description of our Alchemy Learning Transfer Platform. We call it Drive, because it drives learning change into the workplace after a training course.
You know that most formal training has less impact than we hope for, and you know it makes sense to support and encourage people after a training course to get the impact you want. That kind of individualised post training support, from managers and peers, is now within reach when you use a Learning Transfer Platform for their learning journeys.
As well as managing the journey, an LTP manages the measurement. You can put in place a variety of measures to quantify the success of the journey, to get data for ROI calculations, and to measure observable behaviour change over the course of the journey.
One of the biggest problems with post training activities is learner engagement, and getting effective support from their managers. A Learning Transfer Platform will hold learners accountable for the activities they are assigned, and give you data and reports to understand who is stepping up, and who isn’t. It will make things easy for their managers and provide the managers with the support they need to make learning transfer happen.
