Join us on May 14, 2015 for an event with Dick Handshaw, an author, performance consultant, and training expert.

Most instructional design models don’t include performance consulting or enough emphasis on measurement to deliver results consistently. Training professionals resist the idea of being put into “order-taking” roles, but many have a hard time moving beyond being reactive. It can be challenging to include consulting and measurement on top of your already busy schedule of training development. What training professionals need is one streamlined process that helps weigh their priorities to determine what really must be done to achieve real business results.

Handshaw’s results-oriented model is systematic, yet flexible, and it works in any type of training delivery. Ensuring that your design process yields measurable business results can be a challenging and confusing process. This session offers a reliable process to connect learning solutions with strategic business goals.

Presentation Topics:

  • Reframe a training request and analyze performance gaps
  • Develop a useful task analysis that saves time and money
  • Use performance objectives to develop measurement that works
  • Build consensus with a strategic blueprint meeting
  • Validate instructional strategies with learner tryouts and feedback

Performance Objectives:

  1. Explore a new model for designing instruction that aligns instructional design with business goals.
  2. Apply the “cost vs risk” rule to instructional design.
  3. Apply five proven steps that differentiate a results-driven model from traditional instructional design models.
  4. Apply new tools from this session to begin using these new practices in your organization immediately.
