The Classroom Training
- Trainees are forced to do this, in a given timeframe.
- Projects are usually fake.
- No customisation allowed.
A case study: the coaching phase
- it is a method from 1940s
- it was developed in a manufacturing world that was completely different from today’s
- it needs discipline and qualification rules
- Understand the real need before applying the standard is a key step to create the best condition.
- Keep coaching your learners – avoid to just deliver the theory class and evaluate your trainees after a while.
- Give your team the chance to propose changes, modifications, improvements in the method they are applying; this will give them the opportunity to experiment and learn deeply.
So, are standards stupid?
