Consultants and training solution provider TMI has introduced a new method of course delivery designed to develop the skills of those who are short of time.
"TAKE90 is a new learning concept which came directly from talking to the people we work with and understanding their needs," says Susanna Mitterer, director of sales. "Few employees can afford time away on long training courses so we created sessions which would break down complex issues into bite-sized chunks."
As the name suggests TAKE90 sessions last 90 minutes and Mitterer claims they can deliver more than 60 topics anywhere in the UK at any time."
The roster of topics is growing at a rate of around two per week and each falls into one of nine categories - interpersonal skills, innovation, 21st Century working, customer service, time management, personal development, management and business skills.
During one session led by TAKE90 programme director Claire Straddling, delegates were given an insight into improving their creative thinking.
The session included sufficient content to inspire and interest participants despite its brevity, consisting of a clear structure, practical exercises, a brief and a handout which could be filed away for personal reference.
