What will this article help you do?
This article is going to help you achieve better training results in less time by teaching you how to create clear training "Outcome Statements".
What if I told you that you were lost? But then I didn’t tell you where you needed to go? How would you develop a plan? How would you know if you were making progress? How would you know when you weren’t lost any more?
Create an Outcome Statement
In employee training, you clarify the destination by creating a clear definition of the outcome you want to achieve. We call this an “Outcome Statement.” Getting this definition right can make all of the difference.
An ambiguous Outcome Statement will make it difficult to create training materials, measure progress, and determine success.
A clear Outcome Statement will help you know:
- Exactly what training materials to create
- Exactly what to measure
- Exactly when you have achieved success (or failure)
