Workforce Development is the leading provider of flexible and reliable Learning, Performance and Development solutions in the business environment. By leveraging innovative technologies, we deliver standardised and cost-effective learning interventions that bridge performance gaps and create measurable value for our clients.

We draw on the expertise of our experienced faculty of subject matter experts and specialists to collaborate with our clients and co-create solutions that confront their realities and meet their needs. Our researched-based approach to problem solving and solution engineering enables us to get to the root causes of ineffectiveness, and consequently focus the necessary interventions for effective resolution.

What makes Workforce Development unique?

Our uniqueness lies in our ability to define and incorporate the paradigms and practices that facilitate a high-performance culture. Through processes that are embedded in our proprietary 6Ds Problem Solving Framework (see below), we provide scalable solutions that advance the performance of individuals, teams and organisations, improve competencies and enhance overall return on investment (ROI).

6Ds Problem Solving Framework

01

Discover

This is where we ask the 2 critical questions: “What is going on here?” and “What are you trying to achieve?” We leverage our Effectiveness Audit Assessment Tools to provide insights on the real issues undermining our clients’ effectiveness or performance.

02

Delibrate

We invest time in analysing and categorising the root causes of the issues that are hindering effectiveness and performance. This enables us to successfully create workable solutions that are effective in addressing them.

03

Design

We leverage our understanding of underlying causes to design solutions that help our clients Achieve (what they want but don’t have), Preserve (what they do want and already have), Avoid (what they don’t have and don’t want) and Eliminate (what they have now but don’t want).

04

Develop

We test the solutions in pilot programmes to ensure that they are robust, adequate and suitable.

05

Deploy

We understand that implementation, and not just the creation of ideas, is the secret to success. We use our well-refined Action Planning and Execution Framework to deploy, monitor and ensure the desired aims of the project are achieved.

06

Deliver

In the words of Harold Sydney Geneen, “In business, words are words; explanations are explanations, promises are promises, but only performance/result is reality.” We provide ongoing support, monitoring and evaluation to ensure the project delivers measurable results and meaningful impact.
