Micro- and macro- learning
How do adults learn most effectively? After much experimentation and research, Gemba Academy has found that adults learn best in 5 – 10 minute bursts, which is precisely why most of our videos last no longer than 10 minutes. Equivalent to a 35 – 40 minute live presentation, our videos provide zero waste in the learning process for the ultimate Lean learning experience.
