Training for Trainers

I liked this article in Trainging Day by Hap Cooper.  Maybe business trainers need to take more sales/marketing training rather than just ADDIE it. 

Aside from the standard ISD learning you should have before doing ISD, what other “non-conventional” subjects should every ISD professional study?

    I think two fields that have a lot of impact on trainign but are ignored in most formal programs (ours included) are accounting, cost accounting to be exact. If we are supposed to measure our training and show a Return on Investement, we need to understand ROI and cost accounting.

    The second is Quality Control tools like fishbone diagrams, Pareto Analysis, affinity diagrams. These would be great things as we try to determine if the training issue is really training related or has some other cause.

    These are good topics, Karl. I still remember the first time I was in a meeting and the project manager said we needed to “fish bone the root cause”… being a fly fisherman I was thoroughly confused 🙂

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any
    plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?
