Thanks to Nirmj Swami for the performance improving app suggestion of Legato.

Legato is a performance improving application that is offered free by Ellegro Learning Solutions Inc. The vision of the company is “To become the premier strategic partner in the custom learning space for clients across the US.”

Ellegro, a Beeline Company, derives its name from the musical term allegro, meaning “at a brisk lively tempo.” Ellegro symbolizes the coming together of concept and e-learning in a brisk lively tempo  (iTunes Previews). Ellegro focuses on the learning and performance improvement needs of its clients providing a diverse background of team members that can deliver these needs (Ellegro Learning Solutions, About Ellegro).

Application Description
Ellegro Legato is an evolving e-learning tool that will grow in content and functionality, based on emerging trends, proven best practices, and user experience, as you use Legato to analyze and manage your performance improvement efforts. (Ellegro, Custom Learning Solutions)

Legato can help you determine if performance improvement is “the answer” to the problem or request you have been given, identify effective delivery method options, analyze the risks associated with delivery methods, mitigate risks, and manage workflow (iTunes Previews).

The application was created to support the developmental process from the performance improvement and training decision to analysis to design to development to implementation and to evaluation. It is built to be more than a notepad; the application was designed to capture notes and process the collected information further in one of the modules. The user then has the ability to access a recommendation based on the information entered by him or her.

More information about the Legato iPad app can be found on the Ellegro blog site.
