The Learning Paths™ approach is winning accolades from companies who are reducing the time to get employees up-to-speed by 30% or more. Financial benefits of reduced start-up time are significant and link directly to increased productivity, reduced errors, lower turnover and higher morale, all important at a time when companies are struggling with issues in retaining talent, skilled staff and high turnover. The LP approach integrates change management, process improvement & accelerated learning into a revolutionary fast-track training process, often reducing years of learning into months, and months to weeks. Learning Paths is the brainchild of founder Steve Rosenbaum who co-authored the text book "Learning Paths", co-published by Pfeiffer (a Wiley imprint) and The American Society of Training & Development (ASTD) in 2004.
A Learning Paths™ Certification Program will be available in early 2008 to train internal consultants on how to implement Learning Path methodologies in their organization with options for Project team consulting support from the Learning Paths International team.
