Building and maintaining a successful learning program is like building a house. First, create a blueprint of your vision. Next, choose your materials and put the structure together. Then, sustain what you’ve built with regular maintenance and reinforcement – even renovation when necessary.

- Develop the blueprint – performance objectives, strategic themes and content areas
- Build – develop content, identify modality, and create
- Maintain your house and renovate when necessary – create a cadence of ongoing learning
