In an article in the Huffington Post, Stephanie Ciccarelli, suggests three important things to remember when curating corporate training:

1) Collecting shouldn't be incidental. It should be thoughtful.

2) Make it easy for people to make suggestions or share ideas for the sort of training they would like to have.

3) Incorporate trainings that reflect not only what you think people want to learn about, but also what they ought to be introduced to

"Understand the work your teams are doing in theory and in practice, and create an appropriate array of courses covering what is equired, desired and inspired," she writes.  Ciccarelli is co-founder of Voices.com, and the author of "Voice Acting For Dummies."

Benchmarking is increasingly important for effective and efficient learning programs, according to a variety of learning professionals.

"Work is becoming more complex," notes learning and performance expert Charles Jennings. "We work in teams and rely on others to get our work done more than ever before. Increasingly, research is demonstrating that experiential and social learning are extremely important elements in how high performance develops, which is why L&D professionals need new ways of understanding what works best in their organization."

Andy Lancaster, head of Learning and Development at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development in the U.K., says: "Benchmarking is an incredibly valuable process to go through as it enables L&D professionals to reflect on their activities, identify which learning initiatives are effective and consider where further investment should be made. It's also a practical way for organizations to identify where improvements can be made, based on the success of their own activities and how top performing organizations are operating.

"Crucially, benchmarking provides clear evidence which can help to influence internal stakeholders, enabling L&D professionals to change strategy and gain resources for new initiatives."
Laura Overton, managing director of the U.K. organization Towards Maturity (which sponsors a benchmarking initiative) adds: "In our agile and rapidly changing world, L&D professionals have to identify effective practice that works for them in their organization.

"For too long, L&D professionals have reported very traditional benchmarks such as time, cost and completion rates, which do not position them as agile, flexible and truly supportive of business outcomes. That's why over the last 12 years we have been establishing new, trusted benchmarks that will take L&D into the future instead of strangling them in the past.
"Benchmarking is about gathering the right evidence that enables you to make great decisions in a fast changing world for you, your team, your learners and your business."

Google has announced the official launch of its Government Innovation Labs, which can institutionalize innovation practices to make those practices the default for government problem solving using technology as a support.

Google Apps costs less than $5 per employee per month, providing cost savings of as much as 50 percent annually for many government organizations. And with modern email and collaboration applications, agencies can potentially dedicate more time to their critical missions.

The U.S. General Services Administration is finding the program extremely valuable. It is the first federal agency to successfully migrate its employees to a Cloud-based email service using Google Apps for Government, saving millions in taxpayer dollars annually. The GSA expect the Cloud-based system to reduce email operation costs by 50 percent over the next five years and save more than $15.2 million for the agency in that time. Additionally, the new email environment provides our agency with an easily accessible suite of services including email and collaboration tools that help GSA employees become a more mobile and more efficient workforce.

Security is not a problem, according to the City of Pittsburgh: "While the city still retains full ownership of our data, we can count on Google for data safety and security. Our data is more secure with Google than with the previous system."

On the state and local government level, Google's James Waterman says the program will provide officials access to Google's suite of enterprise apps, developers and experts for consultation on beneficial services both inside and outside of Google.

On local levels, leadership teams will be sent through a six-week journey to identify what innovation means for their jurisdictions. Afterward, Waterman says, they'll paint a picture of possible solutions using a palette of different technologies. These could translate to data visualization tools, search functionality, mapping, or open data solutions with such companies as. Once the tech choices are decided upon, Google developers will be tasked to implement projects within roughly 90 days.
