Why do you need GREAT educational programs? A cooperative has countless processes and workflows that define how the business operates. Manufacturing, marketing, sales, R&D, legal, procurement, and other areas of the enterprise use processes and workflows to effectively and efficiently run the operation.
From a learning and performance ecosystem perspective, it is critical to understand precisely how people use work processes to get the job done. Most Board Members tell us it takes THREE YEARS for a new Board member to know enough to contribute effectively.
We all know that educational programs support Performance enhancement and Knowledge. Our community approach, through social networking and collaboration technologies provide users with ways to freely share information, connect with colleagues in similar roles, collaborate on projects or work outputs, and take advantage of the accumulated knowledge of thousands of coop employees and Board Members.
