When is business training a must and how can you make it awesome?
Hundreds of books, blogs and job aids have been created to help trainers to create compelling programs for professionals. The need for learning and development is greater than ever. The hunt for best practices, latest insights and effective performance methods are now very important aspects in the learning and development domain across industries.
However, the important question is – How trainers and content creators can make sure that their training is complete and effective at the same time? How can they add the “awesome” factor to their training? Let’s face it: employees aren’t really interested in unimpressive and dull training. They would rather look for information from Google to learn or subscribe to any readily available and relevant online courses.
When an organization has large investments and stockholders looking over it, it cannot afford to have learners deviate from the required training which are critical to the overall growth strategy. The goal is to have as many employees complete the training and perform very well in reflection to that training. Here are few best practices and tips to develop awesome training for your organization.
Let’s say you do need a training and development plan; the key is to make it learner-centric. You need to figure out the best way to convey the content to your learners.
Take a look at these statements, reflect on how they apply to your organization and find out if your organization really needs online business training:
Often, a simple infographic, or a job aid is good enough to create a learning situation. If you have answered in the negative to the above statements, you can safely assume that online training is not the only solution here.
However, if your answer has been affirmative then, in the current fast-paced business context, smaller and independent learning modules are the safest way to go. Arrange these modules in the form of a searchable wiki. Your learners can easily locate what they need and quickly go through the module.
Creating an awesome training program is not as challenging as it used to be. The trick is not in the details, but in brief introductions and quick revisions.
