There’s training, and then there’s Creative Facilitation training!

Viv Mcwaters

There’s lots of things I can’t do well – way too many to list here – but I can cook a pretty good risotto and I can host facilitation training that’s memorable. I know this to be true because I love designing and delivering training that rocks.

An Argument for Training

Michael Sampson - Currents

Greg Jones , the head of IS and KM at Landcare Research , recently made the case for training (in ComputerWorld NZ): “ The latest in ICT systems can be of no use when your staff don’t know how to use them effectively.

Thoughts on Training

Michael Sampson - Currents

In his comments on the second edition of User Adoption Strategies, my editor commented on the low level of effectiveness attributed by survey respondents to the three "training" strategies - classroom, web-based, and pages on the Intranet. In that light, I was interested to find Mike's article from September 2011 entitled Training Isn't Dead—But It Should Be : " My problem with training is it presumes the need for indoctrination on systems, processes and techniques.
