Training Transfer strategies

Ways to design training that transfers to the workplace

How do you design your training? Do you have to report to management regarding return on investment (ROI)?  What strategies do you use to transfer training to the workplace?

As every department is being held more accountable for their contribution to the bottom line, L&D and Training units are going to come under increasing pressure to ‘prove their worth’.

But that’s not easy is it?

How do you decide what to teach, when, for how long and who?

Often this is dictated by a manager who has already made a decision about the problem/need and decided on a cure… frequently without too much investigation of the root problem. We end up training to a symptom rather than the solution.  This proves to be inefficient.

We work within our limitations and restrictions in our various organisations, but there are fabulous opportunities to create powerful training interventions that challenge and engage.
