In our last online session today we explored the remaining steps of the consulting process: Act, Evaluate and Integrate.
We invite you to extend the benefit of our work together today by considering these questions. Feel free to post a response if you’d like to dialogue.
Training Manager as Marketeer – What will you do to develop a three-way partnership? How will you get on management’s priority list? What steps will you take to market the training function? How will you publish your results (toot your horn)? How will developing partnerships improve your marketing approach?
Transfer of Learning – How will you use Post Training Performance Analysis to assess barriers to the transfer of learning? How can the troubleshooting approach, along with the 10 analysis tools, help you determine how well a given intervention has worked?
Manage the Training Budget – How can you use a cost-benefit approach to quantify expected results prior to an intervention? What hard number indicators will you use to quantify the benefits?
Integration – The final application assignment is designed to help you apply the 8 step consulting process to your situation. How easy/difficult is it to use? What did you learn/re-learn? What is one thing you will do differently as a result of this coursework?
We welcome your thoughts, challenges, reflections and ideas…
