Winning Teams

Winning Teams Professional

The Winning Teams learning and development model of engagement was originally created in response to a learning need in the corporate world. Employees who needed to learn and embed core knowledge were unable to retain and apply what they had learnt from single training sessions without follow up in the workplace. What they needed was a creative and enjoyable way to practise and reinforce learning and its application to their job requirements. The answer was found in team sport.

Today we continue this development in the corporate space through Winning Teams Professional.

Winning Teams model and system is well suited for medium to large organisations where strategy execution requires a focus on change management, knowledge development, core knowledge retention, or maintenance of core knowledge. It supports discussion, sharing and collaboration in an engaged Learning and Development process following some basic knowledge management principles. It engages the organisation from senior management through to the lowest levels of the organisation with a tool designed to support executive and line management in the execution of their strategy. Winning Teams has a solid stance in Organisational Development, Learning and Development and Human Capital Development. 

The passion for building people and organisations is the heart of Winning Teams. This passion has been a driving force to help build a learning and development tool that maps and develops key strategic business knowledge, using a unique team based methodology. The foundation of Winning Teams is a team based competition methodology that provides a platform to measure and build core knowledge in medium to large organisations. This foundation establishes a non-threatening environment to prepare, assess and review performance while providing constant feedback. The programme allows for implementation and tracking across offices and business units that can be geographically separated. The programme helps develop knowledge, skills and attitudes to support key strategies, thereby allowing management to measure knowledge levels and understanding throughout the organisation in a fun and interactive way. Winning Teams is well suited for medium to larger organisations where strategy execution requires the focus on change and retention of core knowledge from executive level through to the lower levels of the organisation. It's a tool designed to support executive and senior management in the execution of their strategy to larger numbers.

In Education

Winning Teams has embarked on creating more economically active people in South Africa. Winning Teams Edu, in partnership with a number of Provincial Departments of Basic Education, agreed to undertake a pilot to use the Winning Teams learner engagement model to ascertain the impact on the Grade 12 Mathematics & Physical Sciences pass rate by involving learners and empowering them to support teachers. The improvement in the quantity and quality of the 2011 & 2010 pass rates of 200 schools in this pilot has been phenomenal and far exceeded expectations. This model is being used to implement the 2013 Grade 12 Mathematics & Physical Science Examination / Revision Programme in public schools. This programme enables the learners to help the teacher to do the catch-up i.e. Grade 11 core knowledge and embed the key concepts they need to excel in their examinations. This is done in partnership with teachers but performed outside of teaching time i.e Saturdays, holidays and scheduled revision. The response from learners, parents, teachers, subject advisors and district management who have witnessed this process is one of amazement.
