OPM Recognized with Innovation Award for the OPM Federal Training and Development Wiki

Washington, DC - The U.S. Office of Personnel Management's (OPM) Federal Training and Development Wiki (wiki) was recognized by the Training Officers Consortium (TOC) with an Innovation Award, one of the consortium's Distinguished Service awards. Created in January 2011, the wiki is a collaborative website that shares highly-linked and easily updatable content to meet the needs of users in the federal learning and development community. TOC's criteria for the Innovation Award are that the winner uses "non-traditional methods and tools to achieve desired performance outcomes."

"The Federal Training and Development Wiki is another example of how OPM employees are innovating every day," said OPM Director John Berry. "The Wiki improves efficiency and best practices for agencies by providing a forum to share ideas and training tools. This will help agencies address their learning and development needs to best support the mission and career success of federal employees. I am proud of our program experts for developing this award-winning tool."

Additionally, this accessible and convenient space allows users to quickly scan for what they want, link to sources or data and contribute where they feel they can add value. The end product is transparent and allows instant sharing of knowledge with all employees.

The wiki currently contains the following pages:

• Mentoring and Coaching
• Low Cost Training Options
• Executive Development
• Leveraging New Technologies
• Individual Development Plans
• Senior Executive Service Candidate Development Programs
• Training Evaluation
• Sharing Resources and Collaborating Across Agencies (a page where agencies can share online courses as well as source code for online courses)

OPM plans to add pages on supervisory training, pre-supervisory development, and succession planning to further assist agency compliance with revised training regulations. OPM encourages users to comment, edit and add pages.

OPM's wiki is available at: http://www.opm.gov/wiki/training/.
