Chapter Meetings

    Performance Improvement Lessons For Positive Business Results

    ATD Competency Focus: Performance Improvement


    Discussion Topics:

    Are you disappointed in the impact your training has on your business results? Join us for a robust conversation and learn four common reasons why even excellent training can fail to deliver expected results, and what you can do about it. Guest facilitator, Mary Kay Elfman, will share quick, practical lessons from well-known performance improvement experts to help you improve your own performance in delivering value to your organization. Be sure to ask her about highlights from the recent ISPI Conference held in Seattle this year, too!


    Key Takeaways:

    • What to do before, during and after training to optimize results
    • Find out what is blocking desired performance
    • Find out what solutions will impact results the most
    • Use a helpful framework to ensure you get the results you expect

     ATDps: May 2018 Seattle Chapter Meeting


    Learning at the Speed of Lean


    Lean, the system of eliminating non-valued activities and increasing value, is used in the operations of manufacturing, aerospace, software, service and healthcare with great success.


    The blistering pace of change, far flung employees, sky-high expectations, and the explosion of digital technologies make today a turning point, and an incredible opportunity, for learning organizations to embrace radical new thinking and methods.


    Concepts and tools like customer value, real demand, value streams, the Eight Training Wastes and ‘build to order’ can dramatically improve ROI. However, activities like assessing needs and creating and deploying content will change dramatically. This is no different than for every industry and company that has embarked on practicing Lean.


    Be provoked, practice using ‘Lean Learning’ tools and begin your Lean journey here.


    Learning objectives

    1. Apply key Lean concepts

    2. Build and analyze a value stream

    3. Distinguish between real demand and artificial demand

    4. Identify training wastes

    5. Reduce cycle time and implement ‘build to order’ training and learning


    Todd Hudson hates waste.

    As a long-time Lean practitioner and Six Sigma Black Belt with decades of lean operations management experience, he’s seen everything the business world can throw at you. From frenetic growth and high volume, to cutting out fat, cutting into muscle and cutting your own throat.

    Todd was a continually disappointed and frequently annoyed customer of traditional training approaches. In the late 1990’s, he pioneered applying Lean to training in his workplace and began helping companies implement ‘Lean Learning’ in 2006.

    He holds an MS Engineering from UMass and a BA Chinese from Connecticut College.
