    BrandonHallA

    KNOLSKAPE, an end-to-end learning and assessment platform for accelerated employee development wins its first ever award for its Digital BLUR™ solution, with a bronze from Brandon Hall in the Best Advance in Unique Learning Technology category. Created by KNOLSKAPE, Digital BLUR™ is a framework geared to help organizations navigate the disruptions and prepare the organization for success in the Digital Age. This is the fourth year the organization is winning a Brandon Hall Award.

    The Brandon Hall award was judged on criteria such as Product Innovation, Product features, Unique Differentiators, Value Proposition, and Measurable Results, which awarded KNOLSKAPE a bronze award for the Digital BLUR™ solution deployed at a private sector bank.

    “We have been working on the Digital BLUR™ concept for nearly two years now, based on conversations we have had with customers and research on the trends and challenges that digital disruption is creating. Winning a Brandon Hall award for something that we developed in-house is testimony to the effectiveness of the Digital BLUR™ solution. We look forward to helping more organizations navigate the Digital Age with our solution”, says Rajiv Jayaraman, CEO and Founder of KNOLSKAPE.

Digital BLUR™ is a veritable guide for organizations to navigate the strategic challenges of the digital age. This is an academy, not a solution – it is end-to-end, and baked in for the entire organization

    Jayaraman is also in the process of publishing a book on Digital BLUR™, slated to release in early 2019. KNOLSKAPE closes 2018 with a major haul of awards and recognitions such as a Great Place to Work® in India for 2018-2019, Deloitte Fast 500 company in APAC and Top 20 Gamification Company in the World to name a few.
