Hey – when is the last time you were able to take a minute, stop, and catch your breath. It has probably been a minute. The past year and half have been a whirl wind of activity. Deploying new technologies, shifting programs from classroom to virtual, developing new programs – let’s face it we have all been running a marathon – but at sprint speed. So, take a breath. Take a pause. Take stock.

There are many Low-Code/No-Code programs that are available to use, so you may be wondering which are the best and why. With these programs you want what makes the coding process as simple as possible and allows for the outflow of work/projects to be sustained in a quicker time frame. These 10 programs are just a few of the options available, but tend to be better for than other said programs, and this is why they are on this list. In the end, it all comes down to what your business desires, but these are just 10 tried and true programs that can be used.
Low-Code and No-Code are newer programs that make the coding process easier for any business to use. Low-Code is a project that still requires some knowledge of coding, they give you code that has already been written and helps you complete the task at hand quicker and easier. No-Code is exactly what it sounds like as well, there is no coding knowledge required for a No-Code project and it is as easy as using Excel or Word.
As we enter the dog days of summer, our thoughts undoubtedly turn to the 4th quarter, while simultaneously thinking about planning for the upcoming year and reflecting on the past year. Reporting on the impacts of the investments in learning you made in the current year – and asking for new investments in the upcoming year. It can all be a bit nerve wracking. In a recent HBR article “Make Sure Your Company’s Reskilling Efforts Pay Off”, the author shared four measures of success that we believe apply to reskilling – or any learning project.
As learning professionals, we are constantly asked to demonstrate the value of what we do. And while we can look at this data and perhaps say “well it is different here” or “I know my organization is better than this” – I would bet there is a nagging voice in the back of your head asking “what if I am wrong”
According to a recent study published by Yoobic, 80% of the global workforce is what is considered frontline workers. Despite this, frontline workers are often overlooked in terms of meaningful investments in terms of human capital and learning and development. This is often driven by the perception that these jobs are high in turnover and transient in nature. We believe that organizations are ignoring this audience at their peril.
This week Josh Bersin put out his latest blog, where it is proclaimed there is a new category of platforms – a Creator Platform. He immediately leaned into TikTok and similar platforms such as Snapchat, Spotify, and Patreon as not just development tools – but platforms – and shared his perspective both on the need for a creator platform for corporate learning – and shared some examples of platforms he felt met the mark.
Before we all go crazy trying to build a creator platform of our own, we thought it would be helpful to break this down further.
We agree. The headlines are dire. A day does not go by where there is not another headline about the great resignation, the shortage of workers to fill much needed frontline jobs, or about the quagmire that companies are navigating as they seek to bring their workforces back into the office – in some fit or fashion. There is still such uncertainty in the ecosystem it would be easy to pull the covers over your head – and go back to bed. Ask yourself this though…
