Methodology to achieve lasting business results.
LSA Global uses a proven 6-Step methodology to help clients to move from a strategy to desired results. While each phase is customized to match the strategy, budget, culture, time frame, and scope for each project, our general 6-step process is outlined below.
1. Identify Desired Results
You will know when you are done when all key stakeholders agree to answers to the following questions: Who is the business sponsor? What are you trying to accomplish? How big of a priority is this compared to other investments? How will you know when you have succeeded? What next steps do we all agree to?
2. Assess the Current Situation
You will know when you are done when all key stakeholders agree to answers to the following questions: What is the current situation? What has stopped this from being resolved? Are we ready to do what it takes to succeed? Do we all agree on next steps?
3. Design the Exact Solution
You will know when you are done when all key stakeholders agree to answers to the following questions: What approach makes the most sense? How will we know participants can do it? What’s our implementation plan to make the new skills and behaviors stick and drive measurable performance? Where do we need to be on the Metrics to Move Spectrum™?
4. Deliver Performance Learning
You will know when you are done when participants can “do what you want them to do” and “know what you want them to know” in your simulated learning environment.
5. Implement Coaching & Follow-Through
You will know when you are done when participants can “do what you want them to do” and “know what you want them to know” on-the-job and you have hit your pre-defined success metrics.
6. Measure Impact & Results
You will know when you are done when you can answers the following questions: How far did our success metrics move? Are people using the new skills and knowledge on-the-job? What difference is it making in terms of performance? What should each person be coached to?
I have worked with other training companies and found it to be more of a seller/buyer relationship than one of matching the right expertise to our business issues. That’s what LSA does – ask the hard questions, listen, and understand our business needs. We receive the benefit of their expertise from assistance with personal development plans to enhancing team performance, to looking at enterprise-wide challenges. It’s all about helping our business succeed as we grow. Right now, LSA is providing great ideas, a fresh approach, and valuable guidance as we develop our management team and accelerate our client relationship management results.
Director, Team Development
What a refreshing change from the half-baked psycho-babble you normally get from training and consulting organizations. LSA gives you the practical and results-oriented assistance you need to define and reach your goal. They provide a results driven plan – not just a temporary fix. They are great to work with, and even more importantly, they “get it!”
Director of Merchandising
In my years working with LSA, it seems like I’ve had a personal consultant at my fingertips to help me identify just the right solution to satisfy our needs. The entire LSA team has become a trusted friend of Actel — assuring we provide state-of-the-art learning to meet our complex, high-tech business and people needs.
We turned to LSA to customize and deliver a supervisory leadership solution to meet our unique needs. LSA delivered the exact top quality solution that we wanted. I’d recommend LSA Global to any company looking for a best-in-class management training and consulting partner that focuses on what matters most.
“We turned to LSA to help us custom design and deliver a leadership and management development curriculum to help drive performance. They have done an excellent job diagnosing the business situation, designing an approach that fits our culture, and delivering a first class solution.”
VP Human Resources
We signed up with LSA early on – as their 22nd Member! Since then, our organization’s learning needs have increased and decreased and increased again with the changing times. The beauty of the LSA business model is its flexibility. When we need to supplement our own internal skills or resources, we use LSA knowing that we can depend on outstanding quality advice and solutions every time.
LSA has become the gold standard in team building and management training at Genomic Health! I have a hard time finding facilitators that come close to their level of customization, expertise and experience.
Director of Human Resources
Working with LSA Global has proven to be extremely valuable and worthwhile. LSA understands our business, has deep expertise in content areas, and tailors the programs to deliver great results. The facilitator was extremely knowledgeable about Working Globally with India and her energy and passion made the session interesting, fun, and enjoyable for all that attended. The participants walked away extremely pleased along with highly useful practices and tools. I would highly recommend LSA Global to any company that has partners or offices in India.
Human Resources Business Partner
We have been able to utilize LSA’s extensive network of top-notch resources to leverage our investment in employee development. The result has been the cost effective and highly efficient delivery of quality educational and management training programs.
Vice President, Human Resources
LSA’s approach and ability to bring the best resources to eBay has been a great asset. They really focus on helping us succeed in any way they can and are very flexible in meeting our management and talent needs.
Learning & Development
I’ve been associated with LSA for the last 8 years and have found them to be an extremely professional, well managed full service training organization. Since working with LSA, I’ve participated in a number of solutions ranging from Performance Management to Assertiveness Training – I’ve found that the quality of the resources is superior. They are well prepared and have definitely done a considerable amount of pre-work in order to customize our culture and business into the total learning experience – making it most beneficial for our employees.
Human Resource Manager
LSA has been a tremendous asset to my portfolio, both at my current company and my past company. As an HR leader, I am always looking for ways to find external resources that can provide a solution to our management training needs. LSA does that for me. Their solutions are presented in a much more leadership-oriented manner so as to be crisp, business relevant, and easy to apply right back on the job. I will continue to augment our programs using LSA solutions.
VP of Human Resources
LSA’s consultant designed and delivered a team building solution for our recent conference. It included careful customization to integrate the design with our new mission and values. Everyone was engaged, learned, and identified key issues with our teamwork. Altogether a great and impactful program!
Director of HR
LSA’s customized Effective Presentation Skills program has helped me elevate my presentation skills to the next level. I now have a much greater self-awareness of my presentation skills and can leverage off of my strengths while working to improve upon other areas. I would definitely recommend this solution to anyone for whom business presentations are an integral part of their job.
