Global introduction to wide strategic changes

Walkgrove created a clear and helpful introduction to a new strategic approach for 15,000 global staff in a leading humanitarian organisation.

The training need

The food assistance branch of the United Nations, the World Food Programme (WFP), introduced a strategic change in the organisation’s work to end hunger. All staff at the WFP needed to understand the change, called the Integrated Roadmap (IRM), in order to implement it.

The WFP commissioned Walkgrove to create an e-learning course on the IRM to introduce the new strategy, raise awareness and encourage interest prior to the strategy’s roll out.

The course had to be accessible for all 15,000 WFP staff across the globe, regardless of seniority, role or internet connectivity.

Our bespoke learning solution

Walkgrove designed a 50-minute, mobile friendly, bespoke e-learning solution for the WFP to provide a clear and helpful primer on their new IRM. The first module presents the rationale for the IRM and how it will support WFP to provide a more efficient, coherent and country-based approach to working. Additional modules each explain one of the four pillars of the new strategic approach, using case study examples to demonstrate how they work in practice.

To meet the needs of a broad learning audience, the custom e-learning design includes simple but effective learning screens that highlight key principles and elements of the IRM. Animated diagrams and flowcharts are used throughout the course to clarify the strategy’s essential features, while real-life photography of the WFP’s programmes in action remind learners of the real-world relevance and benefits of the IRM. Regular quiz-style knowledge checks are included within each short module to ensure learners are confident in their understanding. 

To maximise access for all WFP learners, the custom e-learning course was also translated into Arabic, French and Spanish.
