From the Wall Street Journal today - A New Way to Train Workers, One Small Bite at a Time (As attention spans shrink, companies turn to short digital lessons) by Lora Kolodny):
""The way that people learn has shifted," says Calvin Ng, director of learning and development at Pernod Ricard USA. "Employees are not necessarily engaged by sitting down in a classroom and looking through hundreds of slides and being talked at today," he says. "And time is a big concern, with regards to training." There's never a good time to take an employee out of a busy workday, but training is still requested and people want to feel like the company cares about their development, Mr. Ng says."
