Strategic Planning & Consultative Services

Make data-driven decisions to design your L&D organization and learning strategy.

We firmly believe that people are at the heart of any successful learning program. This means consideration of an organization’s learners, an understanding of their goals and how they want to learn, and a clear mapping of what they want and need to learn. It also means an understanding of the learning professionals and resources within the organization. Our Organizational Planning services bring these things together to ensure your organization is applying resources most effectively to meet your prioritized goals.

Competency and Skills Mapping

A truly mature learning organization will possess a comprehensive understanding of the competencies and skills necessary for workplace performance. This allows an organization to identify gaps in their learning content and strategy and ensure learning resources are being applied where they’ll deliver the greatest impact for the organization. Our competency and skills mapping services include:

  • Competency and Skills Analysis – Design and documentation based on personas, facilitated task analysis, documentation review, and other techniques to build an enterprise view.
  • Matrixed Competency Mapping – Documentation of target levels of proficiency for each competency and/or skill by learner persona and position requirements.
  • Instructional Taxonomy Implementation – Implementation of competencies and skills as an instructional taxonomy in relevant learning technologies and/or taxonomy management systems.

Coaching and Mentoring

Coaching and mentoring round out successful learning programs. Team EK offers ICF-certified coaches and uses assessments such as Gallup’s CliftonStrengths and DISC. Our team specializes in federal leadership competencies and delivers coaching services which complement leadership development programs at all levels.
