Frequently Asked Questions
What are your learning design principles? Explain briefly.
Typically we follow ADDIE with an understanding that sometimes timelines require the combining of functions and activities.
What is your process for training needs analysis? How do you work on this with your client?
Since Analysis sets the basis for any effort to improve performance and every client’s need is different, TrainSmart executes the strategies that maximize client engagement while providing the data critical to the execution of design, development, implementation, and evaluation both formative and summative.
Describe your approach to blended learning program design and development. What are the key steps in the process?
Blended solutions result from calculated decisions based on the analysis of the audience and the client technologies that can be leveraged. Most times, prerequisite knowledge can be learned in advance of application.
What is your understanding of learning experience design? Describe your process for designing a learning experience. Please give examples of your work in this area.
The learning experience needs to focus on the learner and his or her application of the KAS’s or the needed change in behaviors. A KAS (knowledge, attitude, skills), with attitude being the most difficult, approach requires a clear understanding of the audience and jobs that they do. Consequently, TrainSmart is very focused on audience definition. The audience also defines implementation and evaluation strategies.
Do you develop learning materials (eLearning, face-to-face, mobile, etc.)? What types of learning materials do you create? Describe your content development process.
We develop SGs, FGs, PPT Decks, Job Aids, self-study guides, tests/practices, scripts, storyboards, GUI templates, SCORM m/eLearning (adaptive or nonadaptive) using all common development tools, standards. From a process perspective, complete the objectives find the content that supports what the audience needs to know or do, build the deliverable.
Do you design workshops? What is your process for designing workshops? Please give examples of the workshops you have designed.
Yes. Complete the analysis, define the learning objectives, identify the content that supports what the audience needs to know or do, build the workshop based on defined budgets and other business restrictions like access to learners, geographic distribution, language, culture, etc..
Do you actively support with the implementation of the programs that you created?
Yes depending on client requirements.
Do you develop gamified learning content (not referring to Gamification tools & systems)
Yes if it fits the design.
How do you measure the effectiveness of your learning design? What tools do you use? Please give examples of your work.
It depends on client requirements. TrainSmart always implements a Level 1 Evaluation. If the client required Level 2, we develop a pre and post-measurement tool to determine the delta from learning. If a Level 3 is required, TrainSmart works with the client to design and execute a 60/90 days strategy to ensure that learning is transferred onto the job; this design has many mitigating factors related to management and leadership that client seldom executes it. A Level 4, while available, is seldom if ever undertaken due to the expense.
What is the structure and organization of the team you will assign to work with us? What are their roles and responsibilities?
Typically TrainSmart assigns a relationship manager and a project manager to begin with. The RM works with the client to ensures client satisfaction and oversees all projects. Project Managers oversee specific activities based on SOWs. The RM and PM can be the same resource. For each project, the PM assembles the team of designers, developers, subject experts, etc. needed.
Do you have experience working with sales companies? Please give examples (including the size of the target audience, the duration of the program/project, modes of delivery, etc.). Please describe the work that you did for them.
Yes. There are several consulting companies(food service, retail, marketing, entertainment, hospitality, pharmaceutical, textiles) where we provided a training strategy to assist both customer service and sales to improve their skills to the goal to increase confidence, sales, and retention of customers. Delivery methods varied based on client request and end-user audience requirements. Instructor-led, virtual instructor-led, interactive job aids, apps and more.
