Which Course is Right For You?

It’s important to understand the difference between the Intro to LCD course and the LCD Practicum.

The difference is the level of knowledge you’d like to have of the model and how you intend to apply it.

Do you want to become more aware of the Five Actions, learn through a little practice, and try it out on occasion at work? If so, the Introduction to LCD is a good fit for you or your team.

Do you want to use LCD as the norm in your or your organization’s work? If so, the LCD Practicum is the best fit for you or your team.

Intro to LCD Course (8 Hours)

LCD Practicum (3-Week or 3-Day)

Why should we invest in more than the book?

The best answer to this question comes from Suzanne Ashford, an L&D Leader who read the book twice and spent a year and a half with her team trying to do it on their own. It is complex to move an organizational strategy and it just didn’t work.

We have had 3 organizations apply for ATD BEST Awards for their LCD model work and win!

Each of these organizations invested in one or more of our courses for their team.

Going in deep is the way to transformation!

What is the Learning Cluster Design Model?

The Learning Cluster Design (LCD) model guides L&D on how to surround learners with meaningful learning assets for a given performance gap. It is both a philosophy (way of thinking), with four principles, & a process (a way of doing), described by five Actions.
