The Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning: How to Turn Training and Development Into Business Results

by Roy V.H. Pollock, Andrew McK. Jefferson and Calhoun W. Wick

The Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning describes a proven process for maximizing the value of training and development that has been used by organizations large and small across industries and around the world.

The “6Ds” are the six disciplines practiced by organizations that earn the highest return of their training investment:

  • Define business outcomes
  • Design the complete experience
  • Deliver for application
  • Drive learning transfer
  • Deploy performance support
  • Document results
What’s unique about the 6Ds approach is its focus on learning as a business process–one that begins with a rigorous definition of the business objectives and continues through documenting the results in ways that inform action. The authors show why isolated training “events” have little impact and what workplace learning professionals must do to move from “order takers” to true strategic business partners.
Throughout the book, readers will find insights, checklists, practical steps to take, and examples of the success that is possible by applying a disciplined approach to learning and development. You will learn how to ensure that employees answer both “Yes I can” and “Yes I will” so that they apply what they learned after training.  By doing so, you will earn a seat at the management table.
