Essentials of Performance-Based Job Aids
There may never be a better time to take a workshop that easily walks you through the design, development, and testing of performance-based job aids. In today's competitive workplace, employees have more to do and less time to do it in. They need tools like effective jobs aids to help them accomplish tasks faster and smarter. After this workshop, you’ll know how to build the critical job aids that match your employees’ needs.
This program will teach you how to determine if there is a need for learning or knowledge that can be addressed by a job aid (for example, skills development). You will then learn to plan and design a job aid to bridge that skills or knowledge gap. You will measure the overall impact of job aids on achieving organizational goals, test and validate the effectiveness of the job aid, and learn where this knowledge should reside.
