Module 1
Conduct a Needs Analysis
Identify deviations from performance standards

Many organizations don't conduct formal needs assessments or spend time thinking about whether or not training is the solution to their performance problems. This means you run the risk of misdiagnosing a problem and wasting time and money. A properly conducted assessment will lead directly to an informed decision about whether a problem needs to be fixed in the first place and the most effective way to fix it. If training is NOT the answer, you will have all the ammunition you need to recommend another solution.

Module 2
Design a Training Program
Eliminate the possibility of resistance to change

It isn't enough to just decide on what a group needs to learn, pull the information together, and call it a training program. You're dispensing much more than simple information. The program should be set up such that people's interest is maintained, they receive relevant information and in the right order. The needs assessment report leads directly into developing specific lesson plans. A lesson plan guides your organization of the lesson. It includes your materials, content, segment-by-segment timing, methods, questions and notes. It will ensure you move smoothly from start to finish.

Module 3
Deliver and Evaluate Training
Get the message across and evaluate training results

The best content in the world will fall flat unless it is delivered and evaluated properly. Successful delivery and transfer of training hinges on generating an environment that is conducive to learning, understanding the unique learning needs of adults and mastering the use of the many possible presentation aids at your disposal. Information is best presented in different ways and using different media. Using a variety of methods also ensures that trainees with a typical cross-section of learning styles will each receive the content in the way that makes most sense to them.
