Logical Operations in Context
December 23, 2013 by Bill Rosenthal

CIOReview has named Logical Operations as one of its “20 Most Promising Education Technology Solution Providers of 2013” based on our dedication to innovation in information technology training.

CIOReview had this to say about us: “Their professional training solutions are adaptable to the way in which today’s technology-savvy students learn. Whether learning takes place in the classroom or virtually – using laptops, tablets and smartphones to follow along, submit work and utilize reinforcement tools and assessments – Logical Operations has the business training solutions to meet their customers’ training needs.” The magazine also cited the depth and breadth of our “unmatched” courseware – 4,000 courses in a wide variety of categories.

More from CIOReview: “The company’s patent-pending configurable learning platform, CHOICE, incorporates Logical Operations’ training curriculum with an interactive, intuitive digital multi-platform learning experience. CHOICE enables organizations to get the most value from their training investment by providing a variety of tools and methods to deliver a highly customized learning experience for students.”

Logical Operations was one of the few training companies cited. Most of the others are dedicated to the education market.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know that I think both education and training are necessary to mitigate the skill gap. We are doing our best to impart skills to our customers, but we don’t teach the kind of critical thinking and deep understanding that are traditionally the province of education.

Sometimes it can be difficult to discern where education ends and training begins. Both impart learning, so it’s natural there would be a good deal of overlap between them. We need education to make our national workforce competitive. We need training to make employees and their organizations competitive. In the age of the Internet, all the answers to all the questions are at our fingertips, if we only know what buttons to push. And that fact is changing both education and training.

The 20 promising solution providers appeared in an Education Technology Special Issue, and CIOReview’s selection panel sought vendors with the capabilities to mitigate the skill gap to power the change toward digital citizenship. At Logical Operations, our vision is to help organizations, trainers, and students transform the learning experience and realize the full potential of today’s classroom. It’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day work of making our clients and their employees more competitive. But a citation like this one puts our work in a much larger context. We’re part of a transformation of the workplace.

It’s a good feeling when somebody gets you.
