Same Training, Half the Time...
Delivering Results for Busy LearnersATD’s International Conference and Expo - Washington D.C.
May 21, 2019; 10:00 to 11:15 am - Liberty Ballroom, Marriott MarquisCan 10 pounds of training fit into a 5-pound bag? Impossible, right? Especially when time is tight and expectations are high. Yet, in today's time-constrained workplace, organizations must develop their workforce faster and faster to compete and achieve business results. Don't get left holding the bag! Instead, discover expert designer, SME, and trainer strategies essential to designing, developing, and delivering better training in half the time. To meet the same training, half the time conundrum, learning professionals need to:
- Shift stakeholders’ preoccupation with “content” to a focus on results.
- Move from ‘pushing information’ to developing competence.
- Construct experiences that build on learners’ existing skills and knowledge.
- Create engagement by easing learners’ pain points and actively involving them.
- Convert content-heavy discussions into relevant hands-on exercises.
