Five steps to a results-driven curriculum
So where do most curriculum programs fall short?
They focus on delivering content rather than delivering experiences that support and enable change in service of addressing a business need. When you lead with content, you end up with a lot of blurred lines around the scope, the audience, and the applicability of what you put into the curriculum. As a result, you may end up with a solution that falls short–it’s 5 days of ILT or 10 hours of eLearning– and it looks great and seems to tick all the boxes, but it turns out they’re the wrong boxes.
People just walk away with a lot of information in their heads but no practical skills they can implement. When you instead lead with a business need, you can systematically break things down to make smart, focused decisions every step of the way, and have a way to measure and show the outcome of your decisions. This will ensure that you have a curriculum design in place that teaches and trains people on the skills they need to solve the business problems that need solving.
