Through a combination of diagnostics and knowledge needs analysis, WillowDNA accelerated development of a complete learning curriculum by over 6 months.
Elekta approached WillowDNA in January 2014 with a requirement to facilitate a high level holistic training needs and information needs analysis. The task was quite significant and beyond the capabilities of Elekta’s faculty or a single Learning & Development (L&D) consultant, as it required a bottom-up review of not only the educational and training requirements for a new product, but also a review of Elekta’s current business practices with regards to strategy, design and delivery of global education and training programmes to internal/external customers.
WillowDNA facilitated a TNA/INA where knowledge was emergent, requiring deep insight into the needs of a wide variety of stakeholders, as well as a rigorous approach to capture, data analysis and project control. WillowDNA were able to bring a wealth of experience from complex environments and integrate with Elekta’s exacting project specifications and time lines. Having the right combination of creditable resources at hand e.g. consultants, project methodologies and consultancy services enables the team to deliver a comprehensive needs analysis and learning strategy.
Despite the complexity of the analysis, dispersion of the workforce and emergent nature of the needs, project deliverables were on time, to budget and surpassed the expectations of senior stakeholders at Elekta; enabling immediate implementation of proposed L&D strategies, development of high quality educational and training programmes for a multitude of medical disciplines and a clear roadmap to success.
In my 20+ years of working in various global L&D roles, I have never come across a superb L&D company like Willow DNA. WillowDNA may be a fairly new company, but their business model is superior; having a plethora of L&D knowledge and industry experience that should be tapped into by other organisations looking to improve their company’s education and training portfolio.
