PERSPECTIVES - K E N TAY LO R DELIVERY: IS THIS WHERE TECHNOLOGY CHANGES THE GAME? There is no question that training delivery leaves a lasting impression on the learner, and can often dictate whether or not the program accomplishes the goal of improving employee performance. With us all striving to fit that huge transformation initiative into that tiny budget envelope, is it time for technology experts to not only provide us with the tools that can take the program beyond the impact of classroom training, but also help us learn how to use them? DELIVERY TECHNOLOGY CAN PLAY A BIG PART IN THE SUCCESS OR FAILURE OF A LEARNING INITIATIVE. According to a June 2015 Training Industry research survey of over 190 companies, more than 38 percent of training and development is delivered using virtual instructor-led training (VILT) or hybrid instructor-led training (HILT). This makes it more common than classroom instructorled training. While the cost savings of introducing these technologies into the delivery of a program are obvious and very significant, we need to analyze whether the use of these platforms for delivering programs actually improves the impact of the learning initiative. In order to assess training impact, programs must be designed to incorporate the platform features that improve the transfer of knowledge and the development of skills. Trainers must be provided with the training necessary to ensure they fluently deploy the features of the platform T R A I N I N G I N DUSTR Y MA GAZ INE - FALL201 5 I WWW.TRAININGINDU S T RY . C OM/ MAGAZ I NE as part of the program, and not uncomfortably try to incorporate a tool that feels forced or comes across as a challenge to the trainer. Both design and delivery experts need to focus on the effective use of features such as breakouts, shared documents, hand raising, sharing control, video, polling, quizzes, or even the participation of a remote executive or SME to reinforce the learning objectives. We should be morphing the program design to adjust for the mode of delivery, but most importantly to meet the needs of the audience. We can leverage the recording capabilities of the platforms to generate on-demand resources for future reference or to use in the ongoing development of the trainers. This edition of Training Industry Magazine takes a look at training delivery from a variety of perspectives. As you read through this collection of practices and approaches, keep in mind that the transformation in learning and development is already upon us, and that the delivery technology can play a big part in the success or failure of a learning initiative.
