  4. Learner driven: program builds on free choice, engagement and commitment
  5. Tailored: to meet preferences based on age, background and learning styles
  6. Safe: take into account apprehension and ambivalence on own abilities

We typically organise co-design workshops involving key people from your organisation and the crew who will design and deliver your programmes. Our aim is to create programs with bite, relevance, retention and results. For this we use the 5 S grid to check:
  • Systemic integration of learning in business processes for relevance and results 
  • Simplicity for maximal retention & application 
  • Speed and quick prototyping for cost containment 
  • Scalability through modularity to reach more people faster & better 
  • Sharing – open source philosophy and shared intellectual property as a principle 

All our creations can be created with  a train the trainer angle, and involve hybrid delivery teams (your trainers and ours)
All programs respect the 7 laws of adult learning (see next page)

"Make time your friend, and turn limitations into opportunities"Peter Langdal, Danish Theatre Director

We help you to create programmes and learning solutions, from compact briefing modules to complete curricula based on a keen understanding of:
  • your business drivers and deliverables of your initiatives/projects 
  • the resources and knowledge readily available to your target audience, and a systematic use of assessments of current state 
  • the need to offer a wide range of learning vehicles/activities to accommodate different learning styles 
  • a clear agreement with you on all aspects of casting and staging 
  • the importance of managing expectations with clever communication, relevant pre-work and engaging post activities 
  • a special care for the parameters of context to enable the transfer of learning (the organic approach to enablers and blockers) 
  • a deep held belief that working, playing and learning are three different and necessary facets of any sustainable development
