The days when an organisation could assign responsibility to one
person or a specialist group in an organisation are almost over.
The world is now changing so fast, that many more people than ever
before, not just the experts, need just-in-time access to all kinds
of processes - strategy, risk management, innovation, continuous
improvement, learning, project planning and many more. These skills
need to be acquired in days or weeks rather than months or years
and at prices closer to training and consulting than the price of
obtaining a university qualification.
Until now the world has relied upon a learning model which is characterised
by four distinct and slowly evolving phases: the Guru-Academic-Consultant-Trainer
Model. With the acceleration of change it is now necessary to
roll all the roles into one for the rapid adaption-adoption of concepts.
The range of KCP titles supports this approach.
The guru or inventor of a method or model may also have
been the author of a theoretical book on a subject (but not the
practical advice on how to do it). Many read the book but few could
easily apply the ideas. The academic spread the word about
the method or model and gave it credence through research and publishing.
The consultant delivered the method or model into an organisation
but rarely transferred the technology to the organisation. Finally,
the trainer provided instruction to people in an organisation
about how to do it. Shortly afterward the method or model reached
its use-by date.
KCP titles allow an author's methods and models to be deployed
and developed in partnership with customers. Instant Adaption-Adoption
for rapid organisation-wide learning.
