Doing more with less in the training world is no longer a fad, it’s a trend. Corporations have tried to reduce training costs by sending training overseas, putting content online (often in the form of converted PowerPoint presentations), and making use of webinars and eLearning. The industry has also come up with faster, more streamlined ways to design and develop training.

How has this cost saving affected the bottom line for companies? How has it impacted the quality of training? Are we spending less and spending smarter, or just spending less? Dick Handshaw has a thirty year view of the training world, especially with technologies that are supposed to save time and money. In this session Dick will review strategies that didn’t work and he’ll share tactics to help participants actually do more with less.

Performance Objectives: 

  1. Identify the true cost of learning in an organization.
  2. Compare development costs to total learning costs.
  3. Identify development shortcuts that really don’t work and why.
  4. Determine when and how analysis can be a good investment.
  5. Demonstrate how being proactive can cost less than being reactive
