Based on the response to the New Year’s post, I am going post a “retro” topic on the 3rd Friday of the month looking back a topic you folks requested. This month I want to reexamine the conversation we had on Overcoming Our Programming from September 26. In that post I asked the question, “What we as designers of training can do to get past our programming?” Responses ranged from being open to change to leaner more engaging courses.”
Sometimes because we are so programmed we can’t see our own programming. I’m sure some of you have experienced that. So let’s look at this again, “What can we do to get past our own programing, and develop training/performance support that impacts everyone in a way that impacts business the way it needs to be impacted?
A couple people have asked recently why this is called Fried Training Talk. When I originally started posting these Training Development discussion starters (more years ago than I want to admit) it was on an internal Yammer network administered by a former company. My scheduled “Self-Development Time” was on Fridays, so I always posted on that day. Calling it Friday Training Talk seemed a little long, so the name got shortened from Friday to Fried.
