Why Bite-Sized?

Overview

Humans successfully learn things in bite-sized chunks – think about how we learn to play a musical instrument or get better at sport. Learning at work should not be any different. 

All of our sessions are short, focused and easy to find time for – making them much more effective. 

The Evidence

  • Higher Participation – Short sessions are easier to find time for so more people will choose to attend and fewer will drop out. Our sessions are either 60 or 90 minutes long – so as easy to fit into someone’s diary as a meeting.
  • More Effective – Short bursts of high-intensity exercise get you fitter than endurance training. Bite-sized training helps you learn and apply more effectively. Scientific studies have also shown that it’s easier to transfer information to our long-term memory when we learn in chunks rather than all at once. (Squire, 1992)
  • Cost Efficient – Not only is the training itself cheaper, you also save on another very significant cost – participants’ time. 
  • No Bloat – Bite-sized doesn’t mean ‘less’. It means a ruthless focus on the things that matter. You’ll get to the learning outcome faster, remove irrelevant and abstract theories and remain focused on practical, applicable tools. 
  • Works for modern attention spans – In this digital age our attention spans are shrinking. A recent study by Microsoft concluded that the human attention span has dropped to eight seconds – shrinking nearly 25% in just a few years. For people to stay alert and engaged, training needs to be short and focused.
