Information Transfer and Care Management Group have won the 2009 E-Learning Award for the 'Best e-learning project securing widespread adoption'. The win means that Information Transfer has now won this award category in three of the four years since it was introduced.

As the organisers themselves pointed out: "I think that makes [Information Transfer] one of the most successful award winners, because since the introduction of the Widespread Adoption category 4 years ago, Information Transfer has scooped the award 3 times!"

The results were announced at a packed gala dinner at the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel on Thursday 12th November.

"We're delighted to have won the award again" says Owen Rose, Managing Partner with Information Transfer. "CMG have been a brilliant client to work with. Their total commitment to the project has really helped us to drive adoption of e-learning within their organisation."

"And of course, we're especially pleased to have maintained our 100 percent record in this award category - winning with all three entries we've made over the years," Owen added. "Each of these entries has been founded on our experience and capability in delivering e-learning solutions that engage stakeholders and are aligned with business needs - these are key factors for driving adoption."

Previous wins in this category were for extensive e-learning implementations at Priory Group and at Superquinn, the Irish supermarket chain.

The solution for CMG is Fulfilling Potential - a corporate blended learning programme with e-learning at its heart. It combines bespoke content, learning management technology and offline learning activities. It delivers consistent training messages, which incorporate CMG vision and values.

By aligning with business objectives, understanding the needs of the learners and sympathetic use of technology, Fulfilling Potential has made a real difference to the organisation. From a business with no technical infrastructure in September 2008, CMG is now using bespoke e-learning across the whole group to improve performance, reduce risk and embed a revived corporate culture.

CMG is a healthcare business. Staff are carers, so technology is not an everyday part of their work. But adoption of e-learning has been fantastic. Usage figures, approval ratings, performance enhancements and return on investment all show the extent to which e-learning is now embedded within the business.

David Spruzen, CEO at CMG, sums this up: "Fulfilling Potential has had a huge impact for CMG. And beyond learning and development, that impact goes right to the core of our values."

David Spruzen will be speaking at the Learning Technologies conference on 27th January 2010 on the subject of "Organisational transformation through learning."

Information Transfer will be appearing at the Learning Technologies exhibition on stand number 41. For more information about the show, please go to:
