What is Transfer
of learning

Transfer of Learning is ensuring what people learn on training programs is transferred into real business results.

Learn how transfer of learning enables individuals to transfer new skills and knowledge from a learning environment into their habitual behaviours at work. Effective learning transfer is essential for maximising learning outcomes.

It’s a proven way to make sure participants take what they learn in training back to their day-to-day job.

Why does it matter?

The business impact of learning transfer can be huge,
and can include:

  • Increased bottom line sales
  • Improvement in leadership capability
  • Improved regularity in one-on-one meetings
  • Improvement in communication with employee

Here’s why learning transfer is so important. In short, learning transfer can be defined as the sustained behavioural change that happens after learning, turning a cost into an investment.

The key aim of training in organisations is to create tangible business benefits – but only 20% of learning is actually transferred back to the workplace.

Traditionally making training stick referred to the level at which people could remember the learning they had gained in a training room. Trainers were taught tools and techniques that made the learning sticky and more effective in the classroom, but rarely did they tackle what would enable the training to be effectively implemented outside of the classroom.

How to ensure employees use
what they learn in training
back in the workplace

The three core elements to success are:

  • Learning specific action planning
  • Structured reflective practices
  • Accountability framework

A single element on its own won’t create the outcomes, but combined together a significant level of change can be achieved.

Two crucial components

Good instructional design and a proven transfer of learning methodology are crucial in liberating the benefit that training has promised for so long but continually failed to deliver.

Only when the two components start to work together will businesses finally experience the benefits they were seeking that prompted the training in the first place.

Organisations don’t need to start from scratch or find new training suppliers; they just need to shift their perspective to include a transfer of learning methodology. Do that and the training ROI would be of interest to even the most cautious of investors.
