incorporate your organization's real work into our training ---
not fake academic exercises!
Today, business has a
lot of work to do. Why have your people learn with fake,
academic classroom exercises when they could be learning with real
work from your own organization? It is hard to justify taking
productive people off of real organization work during
work hours and ask them to perform exercises that have
absolutely no relationship to either their real jobs or the
organization they work for.
At KCB Associates, we
believe the most effective learning occurs when people
learn how to better perform their real, on-the-job-work.
"hands-on" exercises created during our training
seminars are based on issues and challenges drawn from your
people's own work experiences that they bring with them
to the seminar. Your people then apply the techniques we give
them in class to begin building real solutions to real
company issues and challenges. What is even more important
is that the seminar participant (now seminar graduate) takes
these solutions back to the job with them to use as
patterns with their co-workers in addressing other pressing
company issues. Thus, our approach makes job transfer --- the
main goal of training --- complete.

organizational travel expense as well as time away
from the job for your people.
encourage management's "hands on" involvement
A common deficiency in
training is that management is often left out --- not connected
in any way to the training. We believe that training should
follow top management's direction. Top management sets the
overall vision for the organization -- its mission, objectives
and strategies. We firmly believe that training should help
enable your employees to fulfill that vision. We also believe
that management should be given an opportunity to both see and
participate in the final results of training. That is why we
invite top managers to sit in on the final sessions of the
training seminars we provide.
use experienced consultants who understand and appreciate your
consultants have many years of "hands on" experience
in a number of different areas in business. Our staff includes
degreed professionals with broad experiences in manufacturing,
engineering, information technology, accounting, human
relations, training and education as well as leadership and
management. We believe your people can better relate to
consultants who have similar educational backgrounds and work
offer low-risk, "pay-as-you-go" training and
We firmly believe that
training and consulting should be mutually beneficial and should
not create excessive, long-term dependency on our
services. This is why our long term consulting agreements
include a provision that either party can cancel the agreement
at any time. If cancellation occurs, the only money due
is for work already accomplished. We believe this
"cancel-at-any-time" approach greatly reduces
your overall financial and organizational risk.
We all want success.
