Blueline Delivers Immersive Learning Solutions for Business Transformation Initiatives

What’s in a Name?

Historically, artists and architects drafted their work using a blue pencil. The blueline drawing created with the pencil didn’t show up when run through a copy machine, giving them the ability to adapt and make changes quickly and easily. Those renderings came to represent flexibility and responsiveness when collaborating with clients.

For us, a blueline drawing is the first step when collaborating with clients on the design and development of a learning visual. Figuratively, it represents our philosophy on client service: flexible and responsive while collaborating to meet your unique needs.

Voice of the Business

Blueline's Voice of the Business (VotB) process is a unique combination of information-gathering tactics designed to:
- Engage your employees
- Secure their commitment
- Pinpoint critical issues
- Identify solutions in response

VotB allows you to mine insights from inside your business to build alignment and momentum for a particular solution.
