Our Training Philosophy
The Pillars believe in integrated and
strategic training that is aligned to both the organization’s goals and the individual’s
We build our training programs on the fundamental premises
of adult learning and experiential learning principles. Using Bloom’s Taxonomy we build, design and
deliver training programs that are aligned to the strategic purpose and intended outcome.
Bloom’s Taxonomy: This process was
developed as a way to help classify learning and the progression of learning in the cognitive
domain. At the most basic level of knowledge we have the recall of facts and information right up
to create where the learner is now able to take all the information that has been learned and not
only explain and analyse it but create new concepts and ideas from the knowledge gained.
Taxonomy we build, design and deliver training programs that are aligned to the strategic
purpose and intended outcome.
Build Phase: The Pillars do a thorough analysis of
the needs of the learner and the purpose of the training intended. We gather information about the
person’s learning style, training needs and organizational needs. We determine which level of
Bloom’s Taxonomy is needed as an outcome.
Design Phase: Taking all the information gathered in the build phase we design a
program/course/session that aligns with the needs and objectives of the learner. Using Bloom’s
Taxonomy and other information gathered we design to meet the learner’s needs.
Delivery Phase: Given the person’s learning style, stated objectives and outcomes we deliver
the training in the method (s) that are best suited to the purpose. This can include instructor
led, self-study, e-learning, peer learning models and/or a combination of blended learning
