Learning Design Solutions

Develop a Learning Strategy for your Organisation

Interested in developing a learning strategy for your organisation

If you look around your business, learning is happening everywhere all the time. You don’t need a programme or a learning strategy for people to learn – they are already doing it. But there are moments when supporting your teams and your leaders becomes the difference between sinking or sailing. At moments of major disruption having a learning strategy aligned to business goals is vital.

The Learning Solutions

Learning is not an isolated event

Our new Strategic Learning Consulting services have been developed to give organisations the building blocks to create a learning culture. We specialise in three areas.

Programme Design

Not ready to create a programme yet? The success of every programme lies in a deep understanding of the business objectives and clarity around the skills needed to get there.

Learning Needs Diagnosis

Learning Strategy Development

The role of learning and development needs to be aligned to the overall business strategy and direction. Our consultants can help you develop an L&D strategy and create an implementation roadmap.

Our philosophy

How we work

Our approach to programme design goes beyond what we teach or who teaches it. It’s more than facilities, methodologies or the technologies we use. It’s about how our principles of custom design, journalistic perspective and business impact come to life through transformative learning experiences. It’s how learning design and context are seamlessly integrated, offering a diversity of voices, thinking and expertise.

It is, ultimately, about how our expertise in design empower your people and create value for your business.

Unique Custom Design

We believe executive learning is a craft, not a commodity. With each new client, we develop an entirely fresh approach.

Journalistic Approach

Our work starts with understanding, empathizing with, and challenging your assumptions, vision and objectives. For each client, we build a team of learning, impact and customer experience experts.

Measurable Business Impact

To achieve real value-creation, we look for long term collaborations to ensure that learning outcomes are preserved in your business.

Building Block 1

Programme Design

The needs of every business are unique. Most often than not, learning programs developed at universities don’t have the flexibility to really address your needs. We apply all our experience in designing custom executive learning programmes to help you create the right solution for your business.

Key Outcomes:

  • A ‘Design Jam’ session bringing together key stakeholders and external experts to develop the design of the programme.
  • A complete co-created design of a programme made exclusively to address your business needs.
  • Recommendations of technology and tools to enable learning and facilitate collaboration.
  • Roadmap on how to bring the design to life and how to measure its impact at the end of the programme.

Learning Needs Diagnosis

Understanding where your business is going and where the development gaps are is an essential step to create the right solutions. We apply our diagnostic and journalistic approaches to identify gaps and give you a full diagnosis of the areas you need to invest in order to achieve your business goals.

Key Outcomes:

  • A detailed report on the current skill gaps within the groups analyzed.
  • Recommendations on how to address identified learning needs.
  • Suggestion of resources available to address such gaps.

Learning Strategy Development

As the world of business is shaken by uncertainty and disruption, the pressure on L&D in leaders to support their teams has been the highest we’ve seen. But learning doesn’t happen in isolation. Delivering learning programmes without having a clear strategy is a mistake that happens more often than it should. We can help.

Key Outcomes:

  • A comprehensive L&D roadmap aligned to your budget, business context and strategic objectives.
  • Regular follow ups to help you implement the strategy.
  • Support with choice of resources, vendors, faculty and facilitators.

Next Steps

How we will work with you

Co-creation is one of the key principles of the Headspring approach. We don’t assume we have the answers – instead, we work with our clients to create and deliver a solution that meets its main goals and objectives. As part of this process, the next steps will include:


The first step is to connect with our corporate partnerships team. We will diagnose your needs and set a clear goal for your program.


The second and most important step is to design a program that meets you business objectives and strategy in the short and long terms.

Bring to life

The third step is when we bring your program to life. Our team will be ready to ensure the plan is followed through and that objectives are met.

Measure impact

After the program, we will continue working with you to help you measure the results and the impact in your business.
