Corporate Organizations Benefit from LIVE Online Training
The efficiency and effectiveness of LIVE Online Training is changing the way corporations are developing their employees today.  Already in 2017, two cohorts of corporate employees--one from Lockheed Martin, the aerospace company, and the other from The Rockefeller University, a biomedical research center—have taken advantage of ICPM’s LIVE Online training to prepare for the Certified Manager® certification exams.
Among the benefits they are realizing from LIVE Online training are:
  • Collaboration. LIVE Online training brings participants together both in and outside the online classroom.  During the training, participants share management experiences with other managers from their organization.  Outside the training, participants support one another, act as accountability partners, and engage in study groups. This serves to expand participants’ internal networks across departments and divisions and enhance their value to their organizations.
  • Flexibility. LIVE Online training offers the flexibility to schedule and deliver training to meet the specific needs of a corporate group. Training formats can be customized and vary from fast-paced immersion programs delivered over a short period of time to moderately-paced programs delivered over a period of several months. This ensures the training is compatible with workplace demands.
  • Time - Efficient. LIVE Online training is time-efficient because it is delivered directly to participants’ desktops or to a corporate video feed, minimizing the time spent away from work and eliminating the need to travel to an external training site. 
  • Cost - Effective. LIVE Online training maximizes a corporation’s training budget by efficiently delivering training when and where it is needed. Application-based content is relevant to the workplace and can be put to use right away for an immediate return on investment.
