San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
Wiley (NYSE: JWa, JWb) is pleased to announce a new partnership with The 6Ds Company, a leading provider of innovative strategies, workshops and tools for improving corporate training and workplace learning and development (L&D).
By combining Wiley’s global reach and wide range of L&D products with The 6Ds Company’s pioneering model for designing and delivering training tools and workshops the companies are in a stronger position to deliver robust, comprehensive, and practical content to learning professionals worldwide.
The partnership builds on the growing popularity of The Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning (originally published by Pfeiffer – A Wiley Imprint in 2010), widely hailed as one of the most important books of the past decade in L&D. The Six Disciplines introduces a comprehensive approach to designing, delivering, and evaluating L&D programs. It also spawned the development of live and online workshops, which have been adopted by hundreds of companies worldwide and is increasingly recognized as a new standard in corporate L&D.
Building on the workshops’ rising popularity and enrollment, Wiley and The 6Ds Company will collaborate to expand workshop offerings around the world, develop 6Ds-related content and tools delivered through a variety of media, broaden awareness for the groundbreaking approach to learning transfer in organizations, and further differentiate Wiley in the L&D market.
“We are delighted to deepen our ongoing relationship with Wiley, the leading provider of professional development resources in the L&D field,” said Andrew Jefferson, President and Chief Executive Officer for The 6Ds Company. “We are confident the partnership with Wiley will make The 6Ds Model and Workshops even stronger and more accessible. We look forward to jointly creating new and innovative products that achieve the mission of driving learning transfer and producing tangible business results from training.”
“Wiley is proud to partner with The 6Ds Company and its proven and popular 6Ds model,” said Wiley Vice President Debra Hunter, “and thrilled to have the opportunity to work together to expand 6Ds products and services around the world.”
