An Example?

Malware/virus problems:  Fix it, but show how to avoid it in the future or give you the tools to remediate any ordinary problem yourself.   So, that means fixing the one time threat, but then providing education on how to be safe, automated tools that will clean up and scan for problems in the background and step by step self-help instruction and documentation.

Is the information I'm using the best possible?  Are there better ways of looking at data relevant to critical decisions? (data analysis)

Analytics
  • Can relevant data for key decisions be gathered?
  • What are useful ways to summarize and measure?
  • What do the numbers mean for decisions?  Exactly what number, proportion, difference or trend will trigger a different decision?
  • What are the standard practices in using data to support decisions?
  • Can data and analysis made to be easily understood and persuasive?
 

What are the opportunities and costs of developing knowledge and capabilities?  (instruction) 

Instruction 
Teaching involves less the delivery of material than the understanding of how people learn.  Two critical student attitudes towards learning make a real difference.  These can be thought of as the answers to two questions:  Is the material of practical value to the learner personally?  Is the material something that the learner is likely to be able to grasp given the help and tools available?  Over 20 years of college and technical instruction provides tools to effectively engage learners.  

Remote or in person support?
