What is a workshop?

Workshops are an excellent way to educate and align a team or group of leaders before starting a project or initiative. They provide relevant information to the attendees and tailor exercises to their specific work. High-quality workshops ensure that the content is both pertinent and practical for participants.

However, public workshops are not the most effective way for individuals to learn. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. High Cost: The expense of the workshop is distributed among a small group, often just one or two dozen people, making it relatively costly.
  2. Time-Consuming: Attending workshops takes time away from your regular work and potential billable hours.
  3. Information Retention: Participants tend to forget 80% of the information presented within a few days.
  4. Lack of Practice: There is no opportunity for participants to try out what they’ve learned and return to the workshop for additional help.
  5. Limited Resources: Participants often don’t receive the course materials needed to apply what they’ve learned in their own work.

Workshops vs Learning Journey

It’s important to know when workshops are good and when learning journeys are better.

Amplio Learning Journeys

A learning journey is an ongoing process of skill development, unlike one-time workshops where retention is low. Learning journeys introduce information gradually for practical application in the workplace, emphasizing continuous learning.

Success Engineering promotes lifelong learning by offering ongoing access to learning materials. Private training can be arranged for accelerated curriculum transition.

Amplio Bootcamps

A bootcamp is a concise 3.5-hour workshop dedicated to a specific topic. Bootcamps are categorized into different levels, each with specific prerequisites outlined in their descriptions.

Integrated Q&A sessions and exercises are incorporated into all boot camps, with the final 30 minutes dedicated to interactive engagement. Every bootcamp includes a comprehensive workbook and a copy of the presentation slides.
