Agile by Fire

 In CraneMorley, Innovation

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to transform front line training has provided an opportunity for the L&D community as technology begins to catch up to that need. In our experience, some technology already has. The Microsoft HoloLens, for example, enables guided skills to support on the job, with learning as a benefit, but agile upskilling to shorten time to competency as the primary objective. Dynamics 365 Guides software enables SME’s on the front line to rapidly develop instruction set modules or training professionals to develop more complex courses – in both cases without programming skills. 

CraneMorley is already leaning into COVID-19 pandemic response by supporting Varian field engineers with Dynamics 365 Remote Assist to keep radiation treatment going in hospitals and Guides to keep Intel producing the chips needed to supply the increase in laptop sales due to remote work.

CraneMorley designers are also working closely with clients like Subaru and SoCalGas to reengineer their instructor-led training to virtual online delivery using Microsoft Teams.  We expect this agility by fire to continue well after the COVID-19 pandemic as we discover better ways to drive learning and performance with new technology.
