Development Dimensions International (DDI) is a global leadership development and human resources consulting firm that helps organizations hire, promote and develop exceptional leaders and employees. The Office of Human Resources has partnered with DDI to leverage two libraries of learning and development resources for staff and faculty at CMU.

Online Learning Library (Pinpoint)

Available via single sign-on, DDI's online learning library (Pinpoint) provides access to over 50 on demand courses covering a diverse ranges of topics applicable to employees and supervisors.

Instructor Led Courses — COMING SOON

In December, a group of HR and learning professionals completed training to become DDI certified facilitators. As certified facilitators, they have access to a library of off-the-shelf training courses covering a wide range of topics applicable to employees and supervisors. They also have the ability to customize the content, ensuring that it fits with CMU's culture and that examples used apply to work in an academic setting.

In 2023, the Office of Human Resources will pilot some courses before making them available to interested teams across the university.

Once launched, there will be a minimal cost of $100/participant for materials. So, these courses will be another cost-effective option for leaders to invest in the development of the employees and supervisors on their teams.
