The fear that human attention spans are growing shorter because of technology may or may not have a basis in fact. There is no question that learning via small nuggets (microlearning) versus huge volumes of information is the wave of the future. If you’re trying to convince your boss that a new learning program based on the principles of microlearning has merit, focus on potential profits, both short-and-long-term. Build your case based on an in-depth understanding of your company’s needs and how the learning program meets them. Focus on training not as an expense, but as an investment.
