CHICAGO (USA) and UTRECHT (Netherlands) - Xprtise, Inc., a leading provider of designing on-demand learning solutions that focus on increasing employee performance, and Drillster, an adaptive learning technology that promotes the retention of critical knowledge, today have announced a technology partnership agreement.
The partnership will combine Xprtise’s strategic consulting and design methodology services with Drillster’s market leading adaptive learning technology to deliver a robust solution for employees in today’s increasingly complex work environment.
Xprtise’s strategic consulting and design methodology services, based on the Five Moments of Need methodology, developed by Bob Mosher and Conrad Gottfredson, support the implementation of successful 70/20/10 learning and performance solutions. The definition of 70/20/10 holds that individuals obtain 70 percent of their knowledge from job-related experiences, 20 percent from interactions with others, and 10 percent from formal educational events.
Together Xprtise and Drillster are co-innovating on supporting employees in the workflow by ensuring their proficiency remains high, promoting increases in employee performance and confidence. Xprtise’s design methodology focuses on helping companies execute on the 70 percent of the 70/20/10 model through performance support and adaptive learning. Drillster’s technology plays an integral role in making knowledge permanent, anchoring critical content through a unique remediation algorithm that targets individuals’ knowledge gaps.
Greg Groce, Chief Sales Officer at Xprtise, comments, “We are very excited to introduce the Drillster technology into the US market. One constant in this ever-changing workplace environment is the employee is completely time-starved. Drillster proactively pushes, to the individual, the right content at the right time. It’s the perfect complement to our performance support technology where employees can learn ‘in their moment of need’ by quickly obtaining information in context, allowing them to execute and perform. It presents companies with the optimal blend of methodology and technology for supporting employees while they work.”
Marco van Sterkenburg, CEO and co-founder of Drillster adds, “Adaptive learning adds big value to the Xprtise service portfolio. Our innovative learning technology results in more effective and durable learning in less time. This results in considerable cost savings and increased ROI in learning. Xprtise now brings this value to their US customers.”
