The Capability Academy: Where Corporate Training Is Going
August 26, 2021
A Capability Academy goes beyond a “library of content.” It is a place people go to advance their job-related capabilities. It goes beyond technical and functional skills, and focuses on the business capabilities a company needs to thrive. Unlike the LXP-driven content library, the Capability Academy is sponsored by business leaders, and these business people decide what capabilities are important.
Cemex has built a Supply Chain Academy and a Safety Academy. These groups teach employees from many organizations what they need to know about the company’s unique solutions for supply chain and safety management.
In this article by Josh Bersin on his blog, he outlines how Cemex’s real strategic investments go into their capability academies, because academies create focus and sponsorship, and their impacts are measurable. Cemex uses NovoEd’s platform designed for high-fidelity, instructor-facilitated academy oriented learning for its Academy.
The Presentation Company, Facebook and NovoEd: The combination of these dedicated organizations provided the ingredients for creating something not just evolutionary, but revolutionary in on-demand training.
