Nike does it right

Nike's Just-in-Time training strategy has driven sales in stores by 2%.

"In the fast-paced, ever-changing retail world, training employees about new products, new technologies, and selling skills across a globally dispersed company with different populations is a challenge. Nike has tackled this challenge by making online learning immediate, updatable, informative, and engaging. Nike developed training with minimal disruption to the retail sales environment that engages a tech-savvy audience to increase seasonal product knowledge, improve selling skills, and enhance customer dialog at the point of sale. By focusing attention on quality, speed, consistency, and relevance of learning, Nike's online training efforts have shown significant early results with a minimum of a 2% increase in dollars in sell-through at participating retail locations."
