Bite-sized learning has been touted to be the next best thing for Learning & Development professionals in large organization. With access to digital devices and digital apps, and with adult learners becoming more savvy and less interested in long duration of courses or learning programs due to falling attention spans (Clark, et. al.), bite-sized lunch and learn programs have taken on a new focus in corporate organization. However, there have been very little research and effectiveness testing done in organization to measure the learning effectiveness and application through such programs. This article provides such a learning effectiveness testing for a Continual Professional Development (CPD) program, jointly organized by Certis Corporate University and Institute of Adult Learning Singapore, conducted over three lunch time sessions for close to thirty personal assistants and executive assistants from Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia in a global security technology company. Results from the study show positive data reflected, with over 40% moving from agree to strongly agree in achieving learning outcomes and over 80% qualitative responses acknowledging direct application and improvement at work. The findings from this study will be useful for corporate companies and organization that want to design better bite-sized programs that are engaging and effective in helping their people learn at work and improve their work performance, without committing long duration of hours to training.
