Executive Summary

This report focuses on just-in-time training – an approach that educates workers just before they complete a specific task. In this type of training, content is broken down into bite-sized chunks, through microlearning tools and mini-videos, which can be easily digested by workers. To facilitate this, vendors are opting for training that can be delivered on mobile devices, allowing workers to easily access content in any location. This demonstrates the wider shift towards the use of digital tools to educate workforces. Notable benefits of just-in-time training are flexibility, improved performance, increased engagement, better knowledge retention and reduced costs. Executives can use this report to guide them through the process of implementing or enhancing their current training methods.
