Old problem looking for some new answers!


I know this is not a new problem but I am looking for fresh solutions.

Training for a group of managers HAS to take place now due to other commitments. The system that is concerned and the focus of the training will not go live for 6/8 weeks hence.

I am looking for some inventive ways to keep the managers "engaged" and minimise the inevitable knowledge fade that will happen in the gap!

What would you do in similar circumstances? The dates are really unmovable!

  1. Old problem – new solution
    Hi Barry, if i was advising a client and it was an IT system and the dates cannot be moved. I would break up the training into small modules, stretch out the learning to end on live day.

    If this is not possible then I would build simple simulations in macromedia flash and drop them onto your intranet. Allowing users to practice and learn key elements of the new system right upto the launch date.

    Give me a call if you want to talk through.

  2. Training
    Barry, I’d also include some workbook based projects for them to work on individually or in pairs between classroom sessions. Using screendumps and a dummy/test system to practice on, this way at least they will be using and familiarising themselves with the systems and potential problems, issues, skills gaps etc.
