The Worldwide Center for Organizational Development (WCOD) has been providing organizational management training and resources to their client companies for over a decade. One such client is HSBC, where WCOD is launching a long-term management development training program, called the 20/20 Management Development System (MDS). This comprehensive program combines assessment, mentoring, instructor-led training, project work, self-discovery, and online learning to reach each of three levels of certification provided by the Institution for Leadership and Management in the United Kingdom.
Cynosure New Media is provided development and delivery of the online content portions of this program. Consisting of 43 modules of content, Cynosure is extracting existing content from print-based materials to produce online content combining animation, graphics, text, audio, and three levels of interactivity.
- Basic navigation and control
- Basic screen interaction
- Advanced screen interaction with storage
In support of the full 43-module program release to an anticipated student population of 3000 users, Cynosure is providing content hosting and student administration support to the 150-user pilot session. Content is being delivered through Cynosure's own online content delivery system, TrainingWay (www.trainingway.com).
The pilot completion is expected in November 2005 with complete release of the program in February 2006.
