Conduct needs assessment
An organisational needs assessment is a systematic set of procedures that are used to determine the gaps between current performance conditions and desired performance conditions, examine their nature and causes, and set priorities for future action that will result in improved ‘on-the-job’ performance.
Evolve uses a Performance Consulting model which allows all design decisions to be linked directly with a work place performance outcome. This model provides the most appropriate data collection and analysis strategy for the specific organisational outcomes.
Develop virtual environments
Digital learning events must challenge learners to solve situational problems that they will confront on the job. This is achieved within a virtual environment that gives fingertip control over knowledge sources; allow learners to manipulate, play with, and develop ownership of concepts. There is also the opportunity to review and repeat activities at the convenience of the learner and to link with mentors to continue the learning experience. More importantly the media can give the sense of participating in a reality that links directly into the environmental nuances of their workplace.
Develop interactive learning activities
Evolve delivers content through the context of workplace situations involving actual scenarios, a range of different characters, problem solving challenges and good/bad situational examples. Learners will solve real problems using an immersive array of media elements. Building the training around scenarios and case study analysis will provide more authentic, contextualised and holistic learning, as well as a high level of scaffolding. Blending online modules, online forums and virtual classrooms will capitalise on the strengths of both synchronous and asynchronous learning. This will ensure an enjoyable learning experience and better transfer to ‘on the job’ application.
Diagnostic performance analytics
Diagnostic self-assessment will provide a framework to profile the learner’s existing skills and knowledge, thus underpinning the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) processes. The self-assessment’s ‘degree of difficulty’ is also an effective way to define and communicate expectations of the performance outcomes. When used to measure progress toward competency during the course the learners have immediate feedback on knowledge/skill acquisition. These data provide a basis for performance analytics to evaluate the on-going success of the initiative.
Develop performance support materials
Our creative design process seeks to identify the best use of productivity tools and Apps. These resources provide explicit, step-by-step instructions for the memory intensive procedures. These tools aid retention and learning transfer to the point where productivity can be best affected. Providing accurate performance support materials allows the flexibility of access to create a mobile learning environment. This creates a community of practice that becomes a focal point for better transfer to ‘on the job’ application and continuous improvement.
Provide critical skill development
Evolve will provide specific knowledge and skill development experiential based workshops. This includes blending online modules, audio and video events, online forums and actual/virtual classrooms to capitalise on the strengths of synchronous and asynchronous learning. This creates a community of practice that becomes a focal point for better transfer to ‘on the job’ application and continuous improvement.
We have a wide range of courses available, including Leadership, Problem Solving and Decision Making, Sales and Customer Service, Time Management, Presentation skills and more. Contact us

Conduct training evaluations
The most practical reason for evaluation is to determine if the investment in the training solution was worthwhile. Within the training and development field, evaluation is defined as the systematic application of scientific methods to assess the design, implementation, or outcomes of a training program. Evaluation typically involves observing and recording measurable program outcomes and then comparing these with the anticipated results. An Evolve evaluation will result in a better understanding of the impact of a training event and help stakeholders make informed decisions.
