Plan training

Objective / Output

A detailed training plan including at least type, target, and timing of training will be ready as the foundation for developing and delivering effective training.

Moves and Communications comprising the "Plan training" play


Every change situation will require some training, be that a brief explanation/advisory or a full classroom curriculum. Even if the training challenge can be turned over to the Learning and Development department, getting ready to effectively train can be extensive. The work to determine the type of training and plan to deliver the right training the right way is the essence of this Play.

This activity is to expose specific knowledge and ability training required for identified roles. The objective is to determine the optimal approach to training employees for best effect.

This activity uses output from previous session(s) to set and formally begin development of specific, multi-target training program(s) that account for the unique (behaviour) change needs of distinct roles. The goal is a method and schedule for development of a training program.

This activity is to periodically evaluate training program creation progress with an eye to any adjustment necessitated by new or altered content.

Expected Duration

Effective needs assessment and planning for training should be expected to be 3-4 weeks. Iterative, subsequent updates, if necessary, will likely last 1-2 days each.
