Frequently Asked Questions

What are your learning design principles? Explain briefly.

Typically, we follow ADDIE, understanding that sometimes timelines require a combination 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 an analysis of the audience and the client technologies that can be leveraged. Prerequisite knowledge can usually 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 or the needed change in behaviors. A KAS (knowledge, attitude, skills) approach, with attitude being the most difficult, requires a clear understanding of the audience and their jobs. Consequently, TrainSmart is very focused on the definition of an audience. 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, and SCORM m/eLearning (adaptive or nonadaptive) using all common development tools and standards.  From a process perspective, complete the objectives, find the content that supports what the audience needs to know or do, and 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, and build the workshop based on defined budgets and other business restrictions, such as access to learners, geographic distribution, language, culture, etc.

Do you actively support 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 consistently implements a Level 1 Evaluation.  If the client requires Level 2, we develop a pre and post-measurement tool to determine the delta from learning.  If a Level 3 is needed, 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 the client seldom executes.  A Level 4, while available, is rarely, 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.  The RM works with the client to ensure client satisfaction and oversees all projects.  Project Managers oversee specific activities based on SOWs.  The RM and PM can be the same resource.  The PM assembles the team of designers, developers, subject experts, etc., needed for each project.

Do you have experience working with sales companies? Please give examples (including the target audience size, the program/project duration, 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 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.
