Designing Training & Development with Business Outcomes in Mind
Now is the time to get clear on your business objectives and the training results your organization needs to ensure long term success. Businesses that are thriving are no longer looking at content or competency-based learning. Instead, they are focused on how training will positively affect business outcomes and provide a scalable workforce that empowers its staff for growth opportunities.
The soft skills we value are the most complex to train, and traditional online training modules alone don’t cut it. Meaningful work and the ability for growth are major indicators of job satisfaction. In the post-covid environment where companies are struggling with the Great Resignation, the ability to design training that benefits both the business and the individual is becoming a high priority. It may be time to rethink what that looks like for your workforce.

Training with Performance Based Outcomes in Mind
The outcomes that are most successful are performance-based, data-driven, adaptive, accessible, and inclusive.
Does your existing training design meet the following criteria?
- Does it replicate realistic conditions?
- Are there multiple parts or tasks to address at once?
- Is there a sense of time or efficiency pressure?
- Does the training involve tools that your teams will have access to or flexibility to problem-solve in the moment?
- Is it data-driven so your teams can be responsive to trends and exclusions in your environment?
Beyond this, consider creating an environment with access to microlearning objectives where tasks can be broken into manageable parts that are meaningful to your team. Creating accessible training creates an adaptable, successful, meaningful learning environment. Learn more about why microlearning works and how to access our adaptive learning modules.
