|Success in Today’s Business Environment? It’s About Sharing.|
|Do you remember one of the earliest lessons we were all taught in grade school?If you want to play with others, you have to share. It’s funny how so many of the lessons we learned then, apply to business today. One of the traits that most successful businesses have in common is the ability to share. Information, data, lessons learned – all of these are crucial components to share with the rest of the organization.|
Smaller companies have an advantage in this regard, as sharing information may simply require an all-hands meeting. For larger corporations, it’s more difficult.
The global nature of many organizations makes sharing much more of a challenge. Technology has stepped in to help overcome this problem, with things like company intranets, email and video conferencing. But so far, technology has fallen short of the mark when it comes to creating a system for sharing.

|Get Your Employees on the Right Learning Path|
|Most people in the workforce today have had the experience of attending online or web-based training at some point.Many of us have taken college courses, job training courses, or had some other learning experience that involved information being delivered to us via a computer screen. And it’s probably also safe to say that some of our experiences were good, some were marginal, and some of them may have felt like a complete waste of our time.|
So what makes an eLearning course good? Or perhaps a better question, what can make it great?
|Associations and Non-profits Need a Helping Hand|
|Associations and non-profits have faced enormous challenges over the past few years. As donations and membership have declined, the demand for their services is on the rise.Let’s take a look for a moment at how for-profit companies address their training and communication needs. Most companies have money in their budgets to train their workers and to effectively get their message out.|
The result is more business and bigger profits. We can see a direct link between investing in their internal processes and growing their company. The same is true with associations and non-profit organizations. If they had a big enough budget, they could afford to do the training and communication that would allow them to thrive.
Well, we have a solution that’s easier and more cost-effective than you think…
