An Experienced Business Leader
With over two decades of experience in the L&D field, Ravi Pratap Singh, Co-Founder leads the company and handles sales, marketing, brand building and strategy. Over the years, he has built learning businesses in nearly 50 countries across five continents. Ravi has been a member of the United Nations’ “ICT Task Force” from 2003 to 2006, and has served on the judging panels of two of the e-learning industry’s most respected awards – the Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Awards (2006 to 2009) and CLO Magazine’s LearningElite Awards (2012 to 2017). He has been a member of the prestigious Chief Learning Officer Business Intelligence Board since 2014. Currently, he is serving as a member of CII’s “Education” and “Skill Development” sub-committees.
Recently, Ravi was also featured among “The 2017 Corporate eLearning Movers and Shakers List” and also named among the “25 eLearning and L&D Thought Leaders to Watch in 2017”.
Take on Current Scenario of E-learning Industry
“The rapid adoption of mobile technology is changing the game for our industry. The stupendous growth of smartphones is allowing people greater access to the Internet via mobile devices, thereby enabling them to learn on the move. So we are seeing more and more learning and performance support solutions being delivered via mobile devices. An extension of this development is the use of Internet-enabled devices to deliver personalized learning experiences.” asserts Ravi.
According to Learnnovators, another trend to watch out for is ‘gamification’. It can excite and motivate learners to go through otherwise mundane topics and fast-track the achievement of learning outcomes if executed either as simple game elements added to existing content or as full-fledged gaming experiences. Lengthy, long-winded learning modules are passé. And relevant, concise, byte-sized content delivered at the point of need is in. Micro-learning is a buzzword that’s garnering plenty of attention these days, though the concept by itself is not new.
There are huge strides being made in the use of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) for learning applications. Big data and analytics also hold plenty of promise in providing insights into how people learn and translate their learning into enhanced behavior on the job.
Working as Client’s Extended Arm
Learnnovators approaches clients not as a vendor, but rather as a thought partner who thinks for the client and their success. With a focus on maximizing results and return on investment, the company works as their clients’ extended arm. They practice honesty and transparency in all their dealings with clients, enabling them to see long-term value in their association with Learnnovators.
The team of Learnnovators is highly skilled and can meet even the most challenging e-learning requirements of different industry verticals such. The company understands that learning challenges can be unique to every industry and businesses. And many times, having the best tools, techniques and approaches is not sufficient. Clients need a unified strategy to put them all together to arrive at solutions that work.
The company also helps clients to implement e-learning standards, conduct need analysis, specific learning requirements, develop evaluation methods, enable LMS implementation, develop e-learning content, and review and fine-tune e-learning processes. Learnnovators says that they’ve enjoyed a long and successful journey helping organizations at various levels improve the performance of their workforce.
Recent Client Success Stories
A project Learnnovators did in 2015 resulted in tremendous business success for the client. This was a novel, innovative solution that made use of QR codes and videos, and was delivered in the form of a mobile app. Users could use the QR code reader built into the mobile app to scan specific parts of a CNC machine, and watch a short video explaining how that particular part works. As a result of this solution, the client realized substantial savings, in addition to other benefits like improved productivity and faster billing cycles. This project bagged several prestigious national and international awards and accolades for Learnnovators.
Another recent solution that the company designed used gamification and storytelling to deliver compliance training to the employees of a call center. This was a highly innovative project that used advanced technology to provide an engaging experience to users, and an effective outcome for the client.
Offering Employees ‘The Freedom to Fail’
‘Learning & Innovation’ are the two words weaved into Learnnovators’ ethos because they feel that they are the true differentiators of their business. And that’s literally the company’s mantra.
The essence of innovation lies in one’s ability and willingness to take risks. So, at Learnnovators, they offer something unique to their employees that many organizations actively discourage – the FREEDOM TO FAIL. They have consciously built a culture where team members are encouraged to think, ideate, explore, experiment, and innovate without the fear of being ridiculed or reprimanded in case they fail.
In an industry which is highly driven by numbers (viz. number of hours spent on a project, number of bugs found, etc.), the company adopts a slightly different approach; they recognize and reward innovation, risk-taking, and great attitude in their employees. This approach stems from the belief that the right attitude towards work and life automatically leads to greater involvement, better creativity, and higher productivity.
Future Vision of Learnnovators
Learning and Development is one of the fastest growing sectors in the world today. This is because the biggest differentiator of any business, in any sector, across the globe, is its people. L&D is in a unique position to help people to not just do their jobs well, but also to innovate and adapt to an ever-transforming business climate. Having said that, the key opportunities for L&D lie in; first, understanding that people learn everywhere and all the time, not just in a formal learning session, and second, supporting them in that endeavor.
At Learnnovators, they work side-by-side with organizations to comprehend the distinctive characteristics of their requirement, people and environment. The company then crafts the solutions, which helps in building necessary skills and attitude for current job requirements, as well as those necessary to adapt and transform in response to changing conditions.
