The Learning Cluster Design model calls for a new way of thinking about L&D’s goal and role within organizations. Our third principle “Focus on Learner Needs” states that our context as training designers and deliverers is no longer as important as the context of the learner. Whereas in the past L&D had limited tools to deliver learning, today we can deliver learning when, where, and how the learner needs it.

One of the tools that aligns with this guiding principle is ScreenSteps. How often have you sat through (or delivered) a training for a simple step by step process that the company hopes you will memorize? Have you ever wondered is a class, e-learning, or video really the best way to build this type of capability? Is it close enough to the moment of need to even be relevant?

While working as instructional consultants, brothers Greg and Trevor DeVore realized that this wasn’t modern. There wasn’t adequate software for doing it better: creating training guides that could be used in the moment of need. So they made their own. What started as a way to ease the creation of training content evolved into simple tools that allow employees to manage complex situations on their own with minimal training. Today companies use ScreenSteps to create, organize, and deliver training and performance support materials for their co-workers and employees.

Learning Cluster Design model co-creator, Crystal Kadakia recently sat down (virtually, of course) with ScreenSteps CEO Greg DeVore as he interviewed her about the LCD model and how to rethink the way we learn in a modern learning environment. Check out part one of their conversation below:
