We are truly now in a different world. How we learn and what we expect are impacted by constant change and upheaval. At the same time, we are guided by new insights from research in behavioral science. Insightful, practical, and actionable, Learning That CLICS is exactly what we need to provide the human-centric approach to the corporate learning and development our employees so desperately need.--Rebecca L. Ray, PhD, Executive Vice President, Human Capital, The Conference Board
If you're looking for a modern approach to human-centered needs analysis, Learning That CLICS is the book for you. What I love about this book is the perfect blend of pragmatic tools, backed by snippets of research and spotlights with social scientists, sitting in a fresh design framework. And if ADDIE or SAM are your jam, CLICS will provide you a much-needed complementary set of tools to incorporate design thinking into your analysis repertoire.--Karie Willyerd, PhD, Chief Learning Officer, Visa
Too much organizational learning is remarkably uninformed by the science of how brains actually work and how behavior actually changes. Combing through 50+ years of scientific research is not something most of us have time for. Fortunately, this book does it for you. Armed with these powerful principles, you can create L&D experiences with extraordinary impact.--Heidi Grant, PhD, Director of Learning Research Design, EY Americas
