Performance Support Tools

Reinforce Learning and Provide Just-in-Time, On-the-Job Support with Handy Job Aids

The 70:20:10 Model for Learning and Development propounds that we learn:

  • 70% from on-the-job experiences (experiential learning)
  • 20% from interactions with others (social learning)
  • 10% from formal training (structured learning)

While this ratio may be debatable, L&D teams sure need to think beyond the 10% of formal training and must incorporate elements of informal learning into their training strategies. And this is where Performance Support Tools (PSTs) come into picture.

Why Have PSTs?

We incorporate PSTs as just-in-time learning aids that facilitate the application of learning. We integrate them into your learning strategy to let the “performance changing” gains accrue. Here are the highlights of how our PSTs help:

  • Our PSTs are available at the moment of need. We offer a wide range of PSTs that will boost your training impact
  • We design these as handy tools that can be used to supplement formal training and address the need for informal post-training support
  • Our expertise in Visual and Instructional Design makes them a learners’ delight as these learning resources are within their workflow and are crafted specifically to help them transfer the learning to their jobs
  • We incorporate PSTs in strategic places, so they carry the potential of assisting learners to complete their tasks faster, without compromising on quality
  • We ensure ease of access so learners can keep them handy when handling complex tasks and processes
  • We ensure that PSTs are also great revision and reinforcement tools that can double up as job aids for quick reference

How Can EI Help You Integrate PSTs in Your Training Strategy?

We help our customers integrate PSTs at various levels to foster continuous learning. We identify the portions from the Formal Training program that you want your learners to remember, check, refer, or apply and use PSTs to reinforce those messages. We also weave the PSTs into a “learning path” and keep the knowledge thread relevant and in an appropriate sequence over the course of your identified training period. Here, we often blend the power of reinforcement with improved assets for higher recall, retention, and application of the knowledge acquired on-the-job—in short make it a part of the learning culture.

The result? We are able to demonstrate a dip in your formal training costs and an increase in learner performance and productivity.

Our PST Approaches Improve Learning Application and Boost Training Impact

The traditional way of training, through formally scheduled learning programs, is still useful and has its applications. However, in a hybrid workplace, performance support job aids must supplement traditional training approaches. Here’s why:
