A New Learning Model: Capabilities Academy

Back in 2002 at HSBC, we had something called a CTS Academy, where employees who had just been trained for weeks would spend considerable time buddying, sharpening their skills, and learning directly from Subject matter experts before going live into production. In this context, it was great to read and learn insights from Josh Bersin on his new learning model coined as "Capabilities Academy".


A learning experience platform (LXP) provides a single point of access for all learning — both formal and informal. Formal learning resources, like online courses and internal training created on an LMS, are tracked and measured from the same platform as informal learning resources, like articles, videos, podcasts, and ebooks.


One of the most difficult challenges in my career in corporate learning and development was and still is the topic of measurement. How do I measure the effectiveness and efficiency of training? How can I obtain consistent information about the training programs to help tune and optimize the organization? How do I analyze and report the business value of training to the organization? How do I monitor the alignment and contribution to overall business goals?

discovering your youniqueness

Personal Branding is not about building a special image for the outside world; it is about understanding what is truly unique about YOU - your strengths, skills, values &passions - & using that to differentiate yourself. Through unearthing the true you & consistently & constantly living your Brand, you attract what you need to achieve your goals without having to "wrestle with the universe" to acquire it. Understand, build, & communicate the unique Brand that is YOU.
