MBB’s Capability Building Frameworks

My Baseline Builder’s Frameworks empower your L&D team to use the right tools, strategies, and designs to build your organization’s baseline skills. MBB Frameworks include:

    To build skills, you need to move beyond learning.
    • Workers must first LEARN core knowledge, usually in eLearning or instructor-led courses.
    • But building skills requires opportunities to PRACTICE those skills to build accuracy and fluency in a safe environment.
    • Then they need to APPLY and refine their new skills within the flow of work to improve their performance.
    To determine what solution to implement, you need to what’s feasible.
    • HERE solutions are familiar, using current strategies, tools, and designs with no risk and proven results.
    • NEAR solutions are familiar to mitigate risk but have an innovative twist. New technology is paired with innovative learning designs to create new experiences.
    • FAR solutions are cutting edge and require a substantial strategic investment and necessarily involve greater risk, using new and unproven tools and designs.
    To deepen your understanding of a skill-building solution, use one of several ways to change your perspective.
    • ZOOM IN to get a detailed view (“What are the features of this tool?”).
    • ZOOM OUT to get an overview (“What would this look like a year from now?”)
    • ZOOM AROUND to get new perspectives from different stakeholders (“What’s the impact to product owners, managers, customers?”)
    • RE-LABEL to get a fresh take on something familiar by relabeling it (“Let’s call it X instead of Y.”)
    To increase the value of your L&D solution, look for ways to multiply its impact. Look for new tools, strategies, and designs that meet more needs from multiple stakeholders with a single solution.
    To generate new ideas using new or existing designs and tools, use this approach to guide you. Hold a new idea, tool, or design up to current solutions and business problems. Then, just as you would with a real kaleidoscope, make adjustments, change variables, try new things, and challenge assumptions… until a new image/idea worth pursuing emerges. Then repeat to find another idea.
