In today’s economy, effective manufacturing training is a necessity. If you’re not training your workers to do their jobs properly, you’re pouring money down the drain and losing your competitive advantage.
To help you out, we’ve created a free Manufacturing Training Guide you can download. It’s right at the bottom of this article.
We’ve also got the bird’s-eye view of this in a recorded, on-demand webinar for you.
Five Steps to Effective Manufacturing Training
The guide will walk you though a step-by-step process in which you:
1. Identify business goals the training supports and KPIs to measure effectiveness of training
Make sure your training is going to move an important business needle and that you can later prove that.
This is the best place to start your training design process.
2. Analyze your manufacturing training needs
Learn more about the skill gap and workers so you can design and develop the best training possible.
You can’t create effective training without doing this first.
3. Create learning objectives and assessments
Learning objectives are the road map for your training. Get those right and everything else, including the assessments for workers, will fall into place more readily.
Developing training materials without learning objectives is like building a two-legged stool.
4. Create training materials
Now’s the time to take what you’ve already done and use it to create your training materials.
We’ll give you all the best practices here, including active learning and adult learning principles.
5. Evaluate and revise your manufacturing training materials
Once workers have completed the training, you’ll want to evaluate the training to see if it’s been effective. If not, revise the training as part of a continuous improvement process.
You’re probably familiar with continuous improvement cycles in other parts of your work already. Why not take advantage of the same process for your training programs, too?
