Develop training material

Objective / Output

The material and method for delivering training—be that an infographic and email notice, computer-based training, or full classroom sessions—will be ready to be tested in simulated use.

Moves and Communications comprising the "Develop training material" play


Training doesn’t just happen. Material that teaches the specific behaviour changes desired has to be created. The work to take the training plan to training-ready (for test) is the essence of this Play.

This activity is about creating and readying the content needed to train impacted people. In planning, we should have included all means of transmitting knowledge and skill, notably actual lessons as well as job aids, the Move is focused on the lessons.

This activity is to review and ensure the training program—material and planned activities—is on a path to success and value. A training program should be in progress on its schedule, so evaluation should first consider whether its status is as expected.
