Let's work together to a create customized and effective training solution designed for impact, speed and scale.

Needs Analysis Stage Image

1. Needs Analysis

The first step is a needs analysis of your company or organization. This exercise considers the overall goals at the level of the enterprise with an assessment to determine if any missing skills are required in order to meet those goals. We can then propose training solutions that can help address these gaps. As part of the needs analysis questions to consider may include:
  1. What are your highest priorities?
  2. What are the expected outcomes from the new training solution?
  3. What are the potential barriers that may impact performance and/or goal achievements?
  4. What is the expected timeline in order to see positive results?

Solution Development Stage Image

2. Solution Development

Once the needs analysis is complete we work together with the client to define each objective. During the solution development step, each plan is customized with the agreed upon business goals, as well as the right delivery method for the optimal learning experience (e.g., e-learning, in-person or hybrid).

Measurement Stage Image

3. Measurement

There are a number of ways in which training can be measured and evaluate. These include ROI, impact, application, adoption, knowledge gain and learner reaction. Questions we consider with our partners at the completion of any training program include:

  1. Did learning styles and the teaching environment meet expectations? 
  2. Were trainees able to understand, comprehend and retain learning materials and outcomes?
  3. What additional resources can we provide to assist in the application of the course material and the measurement of the success from the new learning outcomes?

Implementation & Delivery Stage Image

4. Implementation / Delivery

Depending on schedule alignment, the TLCenter can start the implementation process generally within 30 days of the approved proposal. As training courses and programs are fully customized, project timelines are built to accommodate your training needs. When you partner with us, you can expect seamless and straight-forward project implementation with a quick turnaround. However, more in-depth projects may take longer.
