AMA Recognized for Leadership Development and Soft Skills Training Programs
American Management Association
(AMA), a world leader in talent development and performance-based learning solutions, received two Best of Elearning! Awards
from the publishers of Elearning!
Magazine. AMA was recognized for its Blended Learning platforms in the leadership and soft skills training categories.
AMA won in the Best Leadership category for its Leadership Development Blended Learning platform, described as having “a perfect mix of classroom content with well-designed Web-based support and assessment materials.” AMA also won in the Best Soft Skills category for its Business Skills Blended Learning programs. The programs were described as “training you can measure,” “helped us figure out which program met our needs,” and “the pre-session preparation made time in the class more valuable.”
“It’s an honor to be recognized within the training industry for providing the best products and services. It’s even more of an honor and a validation when that praise comes directly from our customers and clients,” said Keith Dalton, AMA’s senior vice president for Corporate Learning Services.
“AMA is finding new ways to incorporate cutting-edge technology into our programs. We are committed to a blended-learning approach, combining instructor-led classroom training with pre- and post-online support to help individuals enhance their performance and improve business results,” Dalton said.
