Share Article

The Training Officers Consortium (TOC), May 1-4 in Hersey, PA, will showcase Management Concepts programs that lift agency capabilities in technology and supervision and enable agencies to increase reach, lower costs, and enhance learning flexibility in a financially constrained environment. The programs were selected competitively and were peer-reviewed

“Supervisors are the biggest leverage point in government. If you are going to change the outcome, the supervisor is at the fulcrum of enabling performance.” Casey Wilson, Management Concepts Director of Practices

“Hitting the Sweet Spot: More Varieties with Learning Technologies” and “How You Can Make Supervisory Training Sweet” illuminate two critical issues federal training and development leaders face—the struggle to lower costs and increase performance. Recent Federal budget debates show that Americans will continue to make tough cuts in spending. Training dollars are likely to be cut, with the result that learning that does not do more with less will not win Agency support.

“Hitting the Sweet Spot”—addressing this year’s TOC theme—looks at how technology-based learning can cut costs and increase flexibility. “Our programs focus on content as well as ways we can upgrade performance,” notes Kay Wood, a Client Engagement Manager for the company. “We are excited about our Learning Technology presentation because it offers practical information agencies can use; demonstrates the balance of quality and cost; and helps agencies understand how they can do more with less.”

Casey Wilson, Director of Practices says “How You Can Make Supervisory Training Sweet” will help TOC members practice learning tools in exercises at the conference, transfer them directly to their job, and increase employee on-the-job performance. Participants will learn best practices, employee self-assessments, and innovative ways to close skill gaps.

“Performance is not only about increasing learning percentages. ’Doing more with less’ is short for building individual and organization capacity and reaching much higher performance levels with fewer people.”

Wilson continues, “Supervisors are the biggest leverage point in government. If you are going to change the outcome, the supervisor is at the fulcrum of enabling performance.”

Casey Wilson and Kay Wood have been part of the Management Concepts team for over 10 years. They are joined by Catherine Zaranis and Rosanna Dombrowski. Both programs enable agencies to align training with mission, help employees perform at optimal levels, and become more nimble.
