By definition, the curriculum is the macro structure that houses the various learning paths for each job function. It is the architecture that ensures all training works together to produce the desired results. It accomplishes this by providing company personnel all the knowledge and skills needed to do their jobs.
A training curriculum consists of many learning paths. A learning path refers to a deliberate, predetermined movement through various training modules. These modules represent a gain in knowledge, comprehension and skill through experience or study.
When effective, the curriculum identifies what training modules are appropriate for each individual based on position function. Then, it links these training modules to performance. It identifies the required or preferred sequence in which to take the training modules and it avoids duplication and gaps in training content.
MDC assists companies in developing curriculums structured enough to ensure a consistent, controlled flow of the appropriate educational programs to continuously improve performance. At the same time, the curriculum is flexible enough to change rapidly based on the company's evolving educational and strategic requirements. The curriculum design also establishes a buy/build protocol for training program selection.
The result of an effective training curriculum is a high performance corporate educational system. This system directly supports implementation of the company strategy and enables the organization to develop a sustainable competitive advantage.
