In a learner-first training approach, trainers always start with the learner. The learner is the basis for every aspect of a company's training strategy, from the company's learning goals to their learner pathways, to the tools that they choose to train and the way they design their training.Whilst this may seem like common sense, it's actually not what a lot of trainers do.A quick note! When we talk about trainers, we mean anyone looking to share knowledge in their organisation, whether they're HR managers, training coordinators, sales directors, business owners, or more.Time-poor trainers often focus first on choosing their training platform, their content medium, and their delivery mechanism for staff training.This process is often project-driven or individually planned, and centres around delivering training in one-time space, across whole teams, or through one delivery mechanism (face to face, online, or blended). The training itself usually only address one topic or area of need; for example, workplace safety.

Artificial intelligence—code that learns—is likely to be humankind’s most important invention. It’s a 60-year-old idea that took off five years ago when fast chips enabled massive computing and sensors, cameras, and robots fed data-hungry algorithms. We’re a couple of years into a new age where machine learning (a functional subset of AI), big data and enabling technologies are transforming every sector. In every sector, there is a big data set behind every question. Every field is computational: healthcare, manufacturing, law, finance and accounting, retail, and real estate.
