How to improve the effectiveness of your leadership with Management Training
What is management training doing for your business or organization? Are your training programs completely effective, producing the results that you are seeking? If not, it may be time to consider another approach to your training delivery. One popular option that many corporations are using is an eLearning method of training. This can augment your current curriculum, or replace it entirely.
If you're not familiar with eLearning, this is simply a method of "learning conducted via electronic media, typically on the Internet." One way this is helpful for management training programs is that it allows for a blended learning approach to training delivery. With more than one training modality available and used for presenting training, students are more likely to retain the information presented. Furthermore, using different modalities allows you to incorporate pieces of instruction that might not be possible with a single delivery approach.
eLearning gives you the opportunity to use video or audio recordings in your training. You can show examples of different scenarios, good or bad, and ask students to respond to them by answering how they would handle the situation, what could have been done differently, or what a person did right or wrong in the example. While we like to think that classroom training is a highly interactive experience, that's not necessarily true for all participants. With eLearning, there's no option but to interact with the material if the student wants to progress through the training.
Learning Management System
Once you start using eLearning courses, you will need a place to store it so that students can easily access it. A popular way to manage your eLearning content and training is to invest in a learning management system (LMS). This software provides a platform for housing your content, easy access to training, and a method of reporting any aspect of training data that you might need.
