Trainer’s Tip: Preparation to Delivery Formula Revealed


Rus Slater
Rus Slater unveils his formula for calculating the preparation time required per training session. Do you agree with him? Could you put together a concise training session following his preparation to delivery hours formula?

I've only heard the 1:3 figure once; from a manager whose belief was ...

"Anyone can write a training course ... just braindump everything you know about the subject onto basic PowerPoint slides and then you can read it to the delegates."

I'll let you conclude how effective that is as a method!

I agree with Mike that it depends on many factors but I generally reckon, for me in my arena, on a 1:1 or 2:1 prep to delivery ratio.

For the purposes of your department remember also that if A writes it but B is going to deliver it then B will need time to prepare him/herself with the material.
