Somewhere in the history of the training profession we forgot that training and learning are about results. We got fuzzy from thinking too much about tracking and ROI, multimedia, games, interactivity, and other stuff that does not produce results. We became invested in the means and lost sight of the end. We used our energy propagating the stuff that essentially does not matter.

Do-It-Yourselfers don’t have the time, the resources or the energy. They must focus on results. They persistently, consistently and often stubbornly ask, “What are the results we want learners to learn and apply on the job?” They ask that same question every step of the way.

Do-It-Yourselfers know that learning is not about learning . . . learning is about results.
