Yes! While Learning Uncut has robust processes and tools to support L&D capability development, the context of every organisation and L&D function differs. Not only do we adapt processes to suit your needs, we recognise that each L&D team requires a unique structure and mix of skills across the team, including your partner network. We’ll always start with a consultation call to assess your current and future needs, and tailor a solution to fit.
We work with a contemporary L&D capability framework with up to 30 competencies across six categories required by modern learning and development teams. These categories are: (1) Strategy (2) Operations (3) Performance & Impact (4) Design & Develop (5) Learning Facilitation, and (6) Learning Support. We can amend or add competencies to customise the framework so that it meets your needs.
No matter the size of your organisation or the industry you’re in, you need a capable L&D function. That’s why we work with all kinds of organisations around the globe. The Capability Discovery generally meets the needs of smaller teams, while the Capability Roadmap will scale to teams of all sizes, as well as multiple teams within an enterprise.
Yes! Whether you call them Communities of Practice, Skills Networks or Professions, we support L&D professionals spread across your organisation or multiple organisations. Our inclusive process allows all community members to review their current skill levels and explore development options. This may include developing generic skill profiles for different role types. Your members are invited to collectively review community skill data and co-create a development plan.
The Capability Discovery can be completed within 2-4 weeks. For the complete Capability Roadmap, the strategic plan usually comes together over 8-12 weeks, bringing your team along to shift mindset and gain buy-in to change. Following this, we offer long-term support to implement, manage, evaluate, and sustain your plan as you build your L&D team’s capability.
One of Learning Uncut’s L&D experts will deliver your Capability Discovery or Roadmap. Our chief learning strategist, Michelle Ockers, personally delivers this work for many clients. If another of our experts leads your project, Michelle will oversee your capability project, providing guidance and quality assurance.
The Capability Discovery is a facilitated process that explores your capability needs using a survey to gather data. It is analysed in team workshop to identify their high-priority development needs. We then support you to create a high-level action plan.
The Capability Roadmap looks strategically at the capability your team requires to deliver on your current work plan and achieve your longer-term vision for learning in your organisation.
Your team members are invited to rate their current skill levels against a capability framework that has been customised to meet your needs, and review their rating with their manager. We work with you and your team to analyse your current versus target capability, and develop a plan to leverage strengths and address gaps.
The Capability Discovery generally meets the needs of smaller teams, while the Capability Roadmap will scale to teams of all sizes, as well as multiple teams within an enterprise.
We’ll always start with an initial call to assess your current and future needs, and advise you on which approach will best meet your needs.
Our robust processes and tools readily adapt to a wide range of professions and domains. We can use or adapt an existing capability framework (your own or one in the public domain) or create a framework with you.
