Strayer@Work CEO Kelly Bozarth moderates a panel at SXSWedu 2016 on the value of corporate-academic partnerships in educating the workforce. The growing skills gap has forced academia and business into a state of disruption, where new models for growing workforce skills are announced nearly every day. This session brought together the minds behind many of these new models to examine what is and isn’t working. Panelists included: Mona Mourshed, Director, Global Education Practice, McKinsey; Robert Khedouri, Managing Director & Chief Operating Officer, Markle Foundation; and Steven Kramer, Vice President Communications & External Affairs, National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation.

Source details: Building Your Network of Influence in the Culinary World

Excellent article! ~ Social Networks like Facebook and LinkedIn are great platforms for connecting with people. They do offer the first phase when introducing technology for a model on facilitating networks of influence.

The next phase is deploying “Private Social Networks” and being able to use the same type of platforms with customized branding for our membership based organizations. These platforms will allow people to engage with applications for professional development for modern mentoring and earning micro-credentials. As a lifelong learner our career development will be enhanced by working with leadership from a distance. THIS WILL ALLOW US TO DEFINE & SHARE OUR LIFE GOALS BEING COACHED BY SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS WHILE EARNING OUR CREDENTIALS ALONG THE WAY.

The next phase of our social networks will not only provide us a private platform for exchanging thoughts and ideas, these platforms will protect our assets and allow us to collaborate with our association colleagues, teachers, students, employers, and hand picked experts for transferring knowledge to get real work done where we accomplish many great things together.

EDUCATION

Across the country Educational Institutions, Employers and Professional Organizations are collaborating to better prepare students with competency-based education for career development.

Fixing the cost of education, justifying investments and meeting work force demands

Working together in a transparent environment to “track the outcomes to justify the financial investment” where we connect learners with employers to develop job skills we can grow our economy into the 21st Century.

A transparent environment will help change happen.

Allowing employers to share the curriculum of studies & competency-based certification requirements with education institutions for professional development that employers are looking to hire for the 21st Century.

* It would allow the Institutions & employers to track the credentials earned through ePortfolio management services for each Student who is now transitioning into the workforce.

* Connect working students & employers together on a web 2.0 platform with collaboration tools for an expert path panel to coach from a distance on an ongoing ever changing career path plan (breaking down into learning steps) for professional development.

* Provide students the working opportunity to pay student loans back by reporting to our financial institutions on our career paths.

* Provide reporting of proof & data that the student, now an employed professional,  is successfully completing the path plans that justifies the investments into their education.

Implementing change using transparent technology can assist the relationships between schools, universities, employers, organizations, government and communities for modern mentoring that communicates solutions for justifying increased investments into higher education.

WHY WE NEED MODERN MENTORING

The Importance of Knowledge Transfer

Vice President Biden speaks at the White House Upskill Summit to discuss how we can provide a pathway for entry- and mid-level workers to upgrade their careers. April 24, 2015.

A well-established organization can use mentoring to reap the full benefits of knowledge transfer. However, you might be surprised by how many companies overlook the importance of cultivating best practices for knowledge transfer. Here are some of the reasons why knowledge transfer is so important in today’s workforce:

1. According to SHRM, baby boomers are set to retire, taking a massive amount of skills and knowledge with them

2. Sixty-two percent of employers at Fortune 1000 companies believe future retirements will result in skilled labor shortages over the next five years (HireVue)

3. Seventy-five percent of millennials want a mentor, and 58 percent of them turn to baby boomers first for advice (HireVue)

4. By the year 2020, there will be a possible worldwide shortage of 13 percent of highly skilled, college-educated employees, equaling around 38 to 40 million workers (Dobbs and Madgavkar)

For many companies today, the looming possibility of the lack of knowledge and skills in tomorrow’s workforce has become a mission-critical issue. Basic employee training has its limits and results in lower retention of learning. Many organizations wonder how to best train new employees in a shorter amount of time with a learning method that results in knowledge retention. That’s where mentoring comes in.

COLLABORATION DONE BY MANY

This lower section is from previous projects, discovery, and presentations delivered by the top 25 Trade Associations in the United States. These organizations represented 75% of the workforce. This research and work was a 5 Year ongoing national development through these trade organizations that developed the National Competency Standards that are being used in our National Apprenticeship Programs Today!

Details listed throughout the content.

An open-source technology platform to help display learning and career path plans that can be driven by ad-hoc managed requests with the ability to author & publish best practices. Competency models can be taught through Expert Path Panels that allow for coaching between working learners, learning providers, and employers.

The Technology Solution offers Private Social Network(s) for collaboration and transparent learning composed of different tools that are similar to DropBox, Facebook and WordPress except instead of seperate silos, these types of tools are available within one social environment (example of screen shots are available at the bottom of this portfolio web page).  The system is uniquely designed for exchanging valuable private information within Community of Practice environments for transfering knowledge.

“I am confident that in order to restore access to the American Dream, it will take effort from across all boundaries.” – Monique Rizer

CONNECTING RESOURCES: Expert path panels & expert path plans for the working learners to advance their career, leadership, and professional development.

Students, Working Learners and Young Professionals being Guided by Leadership Connections.

THE HEART OF THE SYSTEM IS FOR:

  • SUPPORT TEAMS, WORKGROUPS & PARTNERSHIPS
  • GROUPS AND PEER-TO-PEER COLLABORATION COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE
  • PLATFORM TO DRIVE CERTIFICATIONS FOR APPROVING MICRO-CREDENTIALS

Communities of Practice Expert Path Panels consists of subject matter experts (anywhere in the World) who “Input” learning thresholds using ad-hoc, company training content or industry competency performance-based modules. Where the Mentors and the Learner “suggests & negotiates” so that the expert panel of mentors can coach, teach and develop the performer (learner candidate) through career or project path plans.

They “execute” ongoing growth plans and communicate the “next steps” communicating with light touches through any device like Smartphones or Tablets. The process of learning allows to transfer knowledge quicker by connecting 8 Mentors 1 Learner.  The advanced technology is designed to assist in managed Enterprise resource planning processes that are afforable to each user. This method for long distance training, teaching and professional development can serve all segments well for transferring knowledge to students transitioning from education (high schools, career centers, trade schools, college and universities) through leadership support teams, workgroups & partnerships for industry jobs.

Industry Modern Mentoring Programs (Academic Education & Industry Practical Experience Resources working together) Example:

o TEACHERS: Instructs students in curriculum program knowledge and skills, assesses progress and collaborates with employers, counselors and mentors.

o EMPLOYERS Gives direction. Thinks in terms of how students fit into the needs of their organizations.Informs school to work connections and how mentors coach for workplace readiness.

o COUNSELORS: Help students plan career paths and graduation & certification plans, monitors student progression, works with teachers and mentors to identify student needs – at risk students that need coaching and mentoring, talented students that need opportunities to showcase their work, students whose academic performance needs support.

o MENTORS: Model and coach the traits of successful industry experts and leaders and the value of education, professional training and graduation, work with the school & trade associations to focus on specific student needs, work with students to refine their ePortfolios and connect with potential employers.

MODERN MENTORING – CAREER PATHWAYS

Can you imagine using your mobile application having access with subject matter experts (up to 9 seats) who mentor the learning candidate through a career path plan for certifying micro-credentials? This combination of education & industry leadership could impact transitioning high school students into career paths starting as young as in middle school. This could allow the Youth of American to follow their passions being led into careers that employers are looking to hire for the 21st Century.

EDUCATION
Welcome to TIfPI

For five years, while a consultant with Accredited Portfolios, I worked alongside 2 colleagues (Deb Page & Dr. Judy Hale) who assisted with presentations to provide LeaderTracker SaaS and professional services to the National Restaurant Association – ProStart Apprenticeship program transitioning students into the workforce. They authored the Standards and Certification Book approved by the Department of Education for the “School Improvement Guides” used by several states. The guides were created to certify school improvement specialists, who in the past did not have any set standardard requirements to be a School Improvement Specialist in each state.

Today they are working towards a much stronger “School Improvement Specialist Program” that each state operates to assist school districts, where the people who support the administrators, school principals and teachers are at least working with a foundation of 10 principles and best practices when training others for consistency.

In 2001, Deb Page was asked by the Governor of Georgia to be the Executive Director and develop the Georgia Leadership Institute of School Improvement and later in 2011, Co-founded The Institute for Performance Improvement to lead the march on a national level with Dr. Judy Hale as the Co-founder of TIfPI. Dr. Hale served two seperate terms as past president of the International Society of Performance Improvement.

Deb Page & Dr. Judy Hale performed 5 years of 70 human performance management case studies behind the professional development toolkit for certifications SaaS model called LeaderTracker which was created in 2009. The technology was ahead of its time, particularly for the Boomer Generation.

Many school districts are using collaboration and professional development software today. Since most school districts software applications are silos and don’t communicate across the board improvement plans with other district professionals it is hard to have an organized social learning environment that would allow the best school districts to mentor the non-performing ones (aligning similar geographical leadership to teach, coach and develop assisting them with experts who can teach what works).

“Transfering the knowledge” — there is no mechanism in practice today that provides a platform similar to LinkedIn or Facebook, which can provide Communities of Practice or Groups the tools to advance peoples skills.

If you have 7.5 minutes this gives a detailed review of LeaderTracker which is a social learning network.

INDUSTRY

The most recent release of the 23 competency models from the nation’s business & industry Associations are made public as resources that can be found at this address:
www.careeronestop.org/CompetencyModel/

Those Competency Models are serving as the national standards that were not in place four years ago. The following Associations represent 70% of the Nation’s workforce or 30 million new jobs in next five years. These competency-based models will help to bridge the gap between education curriculums and competency requirements that employers are looking to hire to grow the economy in the 21st Century.

MANAGING TO STANDARDS
The solution for ongoing guidance and professional development for career pathways from middle school to higher education are in need to connect learners with the right resources.  By leveraging today’s technology to automate mentoring processes through an expert path panel using the Cloud on a Web 2.0 platform, we can participate in social learning mechanisms that transfer knowledge to help students that will make the biggest differences.

Where we can collaborate & learn from subject matter experts and each other & where we have the ability to design, create and personalize our own training to gain micro-credential certifications using standardize competency models.

Building Leadership and Developing Diversity

This is a living document and is updated from time to time.

Today through several administrative efforts most industry organizations are able to work with more federal funding programs designed to positively impact training new hires for trade careers. These include the implementation of well organized government funded “earn and learn” training programs in each state.

As a Sophomore in high school, I took my first step in my career as a trade apprentice in a correspondence course communicating proof of accomplishments by mail in the 70’s. I was signed as the very first Apprentice on the roster, in the entire United States, being offered for the first time through the American Culinary Federation correspondence course. I was sponsored by Robert H. Nelson, CEC, CCE, AAC and mentored by Chef Larry Farhat at the Spring Lake Country Club and Mr. Jim Singerling, CCM, HAAC, HBOT.

It was the same year that Chef Ferdinand E. Metz, CMC, W GMC, AAC, HOF, Dr. L.J. Minor, Chef Louis I. Szathmary and Lt. Gen. John D. McLaughlin were successful working with the Department of Labor in elevating the status of Chef from the “Services” to the “Professional” category.

As it is within these important points our work needs to continue.

  1. There is a need to inspire others by proof of success.
  2. People need to learn to market themselves.
  3. People need to learn and advance their skills and ideas.
  4. Encourage ownership.
  5. Develop mentor leadership in our industry.
  6. Create jobs for all minorities.

One of the great challenges facing organizations is getting all employees, from the CEO to the hourly workers, to realize that to become the best, they have to embrace diversity.

Diversity is about empowering people. It makes an organization effective by capitalizing on all of the strengths of each employee. It is not EEO or Affirmative Action. These are laws and policies. While on the other hand, diversity is understanding, valuing, and using the differences in every person.

Diversity is not only black and white, female and male, gay and straight, Jewish and Christian, young and old, etc.; but the diversity of every individual, slow learner and fast learner, introvert and extrovert, controlling type and people type, scholar and sports-person, liberal and conservative, etc. – Clark, D.R.

As organizations invest more in communication platforms and eLearning we are able to link minority professionals with Mentors that can enhance the education outcome and provide career opportunities for advancement.

The mission to modernize the mentoring tools can provide a working learner with both an environment where they can acquire both academic studies & practical experience. Creating connections that will lead to support systems and new ways of conceiving the way we learn, and the way we work, and how we integrate those things.

Open technology particularly Web 2.0 can contribute to leveling the playing field and increase the organizations professional services for mobile mentoring to a more diverse professional workforce. This can assist those who are looking for direction, advice and leadership while they are still in High School – or dropping out because they have no direction.

The acquisition of succession planning tools can contribute to making sure any industry has well trained professionals who lead other students and perhaps want to become educators replicating best practices.

WORLD CLASS CONTENT

The certification programs of today have world class content. As does the recent NRAEF Food and Beverage Service Competency Model shown on the Department of Labor Competency Model Clearinghouse website. Search the Clearinghouse for your industry competency models.

A BETTER WAY TO MANAGE KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER

Organizations that work together can provide membership with collaborative transparent communication tools to automate the competency certification, accreditation and assessing process. The benefits can increase the member’s participation and success with coaching students with a mobile application with real-time steps, performance path plans and teaching real life skills. Most importantly replicating what works in those communities that need the most help.

Before 2010 everyone communicated within their own Information Silo’s – Today because of Cloud Computing we are able to share information, and build platforms that allow everyone to participate.

expert path panel

Most organizations have standards and career development content & best practices, although may not have or can afford the technology to manage them. Industry communications can be augmented to enhance the Apprenticeship programs in America when working with private social networks and within support teams, work-groups, and partnerships.

Ways to create and market our professional portfolios as a mechanism to communicate within these groups. 

Ways to enhance the communications between organizations with ad-hoc work requirements that are managed by support teams to assist us in time of need.

The purpose is to mentor those who are transitioning from high school to industry jobs, and from life changing experiences to better conditions – to prospective employers, and throughout our careers. 

It starts with working with Today’s Students – Tomorrow’s Leaders!

Collaborating with a well diverse workforce leading each industry: Social Media like Facebook (Groups), LinkedIn (Education, Groups, and Professional Mentors, WordPress (ePortfolio web pages), and others offer many public social software services that everyone can participate in. Unfortunately many free services do not play well together. The need is to professionally develop willing learners with proven teaching models that can utilize these types of services within one platform. This will provide willing learners with growth plans utilizing the Competency Model Clearinghouse through the teachings of expert path panels – becoming certified professionals.

Taking my first step in my career as a trade apprentice in a correspondence course communicating proof of accomplishments by mail in the 70’s, is where I get my passion to serve and assist other working learners today with advanced communication technology” – Michael Rutherford
