LMP training offers all unit-based team members, co-leads and sponsors an opportunity to build skills essential to Kaiser Permanente’s business strategy. For many teams, a Unit-Based Team Learning Plan is the place to start, to help identify needs and boost team performance (see Related Tools, right).

Learn more about partnership

In addition, LMP offers courses on the history of the partnership, the business of KP and various problem-solving and decision-making techniques that are central to a collaborative work environment. To find out what training you and your team members need, download the LMP Core Curriculum Map (see Related Tools, right).

Whether you are just learning about partnership, or are on a team for the first time, or you’re a team member or co-lead looking for additional training, you will find what you are looking for on the map.

Two tiers of courses are offered, as described below.

LMP training for frontline workers

Want to learn more about your rights, responsibilities and opportunities under the National Agreement, as well as new ways of working in partnership? All employees covered by the 2012 National Agreement can take LMP training workshops, with the permission of their supervisor and their training contact. Your region or medical center’s training contact is available to help you sign up for the next scheduled class.

Training for trainers

To build capacity for learning and educational programs, OLMP Education and Training partners with regions to identify key leaders to deliver training. This program involves four steps: observation, classroom training in the course material, feedback and certification. Each region typically chooses trainers, certified by OLMP staff, to ensure that qualified classroom leaders are always available.

For more information on the Train the Trainers program, contact LMPlearn@kp.org or your regional training contact.

Path to Performance online toolkit
