How Knowledge Bank Can Help You
- Need to find out about a subject quickly?
We’ve all had the experience of having to get ourselves up to speed on a topic or subject matter but not enough time to do it in. Even if it’s a topic we think we know a lot about, things move so fast it’s good to reassure ourselves that our thinking is up-to-date. Unfortunately, trawling through the vast amounts of information on the net is a time-consuming endeavour in itself. This is where Knowledge Bank comes in. Not only do we stay on top of a wide range of topics, we also cover them from a variety of angles. So if you need a ‘quick fix’ refresher, try our top tips or how to guides. But if something with a bit more depth is required our key concepts and theories pieces are just the thing.
- Looking to put together a workshop or course?
Designing a course from scratch can be a daunting process. How should it be structured? What information should definitely be covered and how? What are the best exercises to include? Not only do we provide you with thorough overviews of topics (handy to make sure that you are covering the essential elements), but Knowledge Bank is full of exercises, energisers, and icebreakers that you can put straight into your learning solutions. You can download them as Word documents too, so that you can customise them as you see fit.
- Want to share ideas or discuss issues?
Sometimes we just want to talk. At Knowledge Bank, we understand that. That’s why we have created the means for people to communicate with each other. Our subscriber-only forum is a space for our friends to join in with sharing best practice advice and knowledge, but also to get opinions, feedback or suggestions on some of the more challenging matters we sometimes face.
- Need to support colleagues, managers or employees?
If you work in people-focussed profession like Learning and Development, Human Resources or Organisational Development, then others are going to look to you for help. Knowledge Bank gives you the means to provide that help. With a range of templates, diagnostics and questionnaires to hand, you can quickly get to the centre of any issues or challenges, and not only offer constructive and effective solutions, but help to implement them too.
