Herrmann International’s work with IBM in developing the new blended learning solution, the Thinking Accelerator™ featuring HBDIinteractive™, is featured in the December 2009 issue of Chief Learning Officer Magazine as part of the magazine’s coverage of its 2009 Excellence in Practice Awards. Herrmann International received the Silver Award for Excellence in Content in the Provider Awards category.
According to the magazine, the Excellence in Practice Provider Awards were created to “recognize distinguished service providers for their close work with clients to design and implement innovative and effective learning solutions.”
Over the past three decades, Herrmann International has had the great pleasure of partnering with clients like IBM who are dedicated to growing the field of learning and discovering new and innovative ways to build the next generation of great leaders.
Originally developed as part of IBM’s global new leader development program, the Thinking Accelerator™ is an example of that kind of innovative partnership. The solution includes a five-module online simulation that incorporates a participant’s HBDI® profile data, allowing the learner to explore thinking preferences and apply Whole Brain® Thinking techniques to improve communication, leadership, problem solving, creativity and other critical business skills.
IBM has incorporated face-to-face classroom labs, webinars and other action learning activities as part of this blended learning solution to achieve key learning objectives while efficiently and effectively reaching its emerging leaders around the globe.
