Making the Learning Stick for Understanding UK Supermarkets and the UK Grocery Market
Hopefully the term ‘Sticky Learning ®’ has intrigued you, whilst you probably guessed a sense of what it is about.
In short Sticky Learning ® is our own unique method that we have developed to help Learners Realise more of what they have learnt, be able to Recall more of what they have learnt, and Retain more of what they have learnt. In 2016 we further upgraded this unique training method to include habits formation as a big part of helping Learners to use more of what they have learnt.
This is good for our clients because it means that the money they spend with us is better invested than with other training providers because the learning is used for longer.
Training Course Duration
At MBM we no longer offer 1 day courses due to their limited effect.
Our Sticky Learning ® unique training method enables Learners to learn more, learn more quickly, and learn more easily. Sticky Learning ® is a key part of the 4 month training course consisting of pre-work, Learning To Learn 1/2 day training course, a Foundation day training course, an embedding day, and an Advanced 1 day training course (6 months after the Foundation training course).
In between the Foundation training course and the Advanced training course, the Learner will be challenged to complete ‘Sticky Pieces’, which appeals to the 70:20:10 learning model. These are desk based activities that help the Learner to change their behaviour long term by identifying a habit that they wish to adopt to embed the new skill.
The Learner is also given:

Measuring Return on Investment
There are many evaluation methods for training, each trying to find the holy grail of return on investment. We use Donald Kirkpatrick’s four-level training evaluation model as a base because it has stood the test of time, since 1953.
Level 1: Reaction: How did the Learners react to the training?
Level 2: Learning: How much learning did the Learners get?
Level 3: Behaviour: How much have the Learners used the learning?
Level 4: Results: How much effect did the Learner’s learning have on performance?
Few training providers measure the return on investment beyond the level 1 reaction. We have added one further level:
Level 5: Sponsor: How much did we achieve the sponsor’s objectives?
