Guiding questions

  • How do you want to structure the learning - i.e. short or long modules? online or in class or blended?
  • Should some learnings be compulsory and others voluntary? How can you implement both carrot and stick?
  • Do you set milestones and levels in the training to incite people to continue learning?
  • How do you enable peer to peer learning, reverse mentoring, lunch & learn, expert sessions, buddying or such mechanisms?
  • How do you blend certification and simple presence and/or completion of lifelong learning?
  • How do you integrate gamification into the tools you use or develop?
  • How do you split the tools you are using between skill acquisition and knowledge acquisition?
