American Institutes for Research (AIR) and Illumina expand Employee Development Resources
AIR is constantly enlarging the resources available for the development of its growing staff. In particular, AIR has worked with Illumina in a multi-year effort to develop two series of micro-learning modules – one group in the Business Development area, and the other in the Project Management arena. In the latter half of 2022 and the very beginning of 2023, AIR and Illumina collaborated to add eight new Business Development modules to the library, on a variety of topics, such as the Business Development Life Cycle and Capture Planning. Each short module, developed in Articulate Rise, presents the employee with key concepts in the subject area, and gives them opportunities to apply their knowledge and improve their skills. The Project Management 101 module provides an overview of project management at AIR, including the role of project managers and their value to clients and the organization. The module includes a deep dive into the eight Project Performance Domains that guide the project management profession. These learning resources have been well received, and additional modules in both series are currently under development.
