Strategy

We all know that a robust training strategy plays an integral role in driving the success of an organization. In spite of this, in my career of more than 30 years, I have spent quite a bit of time explaining that training strategy is not a bunch of PowerPoint slides thrown together to create “training” for staff and customers.  

In fact, there is a lot more that goes into putting together a training strategy. In my experience, developing a training strategy is very similar to what engineering teams do to put a product strategy in place. 

Before designing your training strategy, it is important to identify the goal of the training team. Why do you need to create training? Is it to drive awareness and adoption of your product or service? Is it because you want to build and validate the technical skills of your field and customers on your product or service? Or is it because your training team is a P&L organization and you want to make a profit?

Storytelling! It is the Right Ingredient for Training

Is storytelling the right fit for training? The answer is a resounding “Yes!”

Using storytelling to deliver content is effective because it engages learners, helps them retain their learning, and helps you organize your content more efficiently. Indeed, the benefits are clear:

Stories provide a realistic context for content.

Stories convey action versus static information.

Stories motivate participants to connect with content.

Stories add interest to learning programs.

But there are many different kinds of stories, so you need to find one that makes a relevant point and fits the content.

We are preparing a video so that you can view the effectiveness of Storytelling in your learning environment.
