This book is the story of applying the Learning Paths Methodology over the past fifteen years to reduce time to proficiency significantly for hundreds of jobs across most major industries. The story starts after the publishing of the book, Learning Paths: Increase Profits by Reducing the Time It Takes to Get Employees Up to speed. The Learning Paths book is still a valuable resource for tools, forms, and great ideas. Up to Speed is based on three key principles about how people really learn. First, learning is a process, not an event. Second, knowing and doing are not the same in fact they are very, very different. Third, training should be by design not by accident. The Learning Path Methodology treats learning as a process and then takes steps to reduce time, waste and variability by applying the best of process improvement, accelerated learning and change management techniques
