There is plenty of training software. But the training software that can fulfill all your needs is the one customized to your needs or is customizable according to your organizational training requirement.
LMS 360 Learning is an easily customizable platform, within a small time frame, sometimes even minutes. To create something like this, even after having all the resources in place, the process takes a lot of time from start to finish. It is a nuanced process that requires organizational vision, goals, systems, and processes, change initiatives with specification, Legal requirements, standardized results for processes and protocols, resource parameters, confidentiality, and security requirements. This is only required from the organization, further, you are required to create a course structure and then a comprehensive training course and then finally upload it onto a portal.
The above-mentioned process is that of training software creation and rightfully takes a lot of time to finish and is available with the desired result. According to industry experts, SAM is the buzzword these days. It is known by its expansion as the Successive Approximations Model. It has turned out to be successful, up to the point that the time taken to create an efficient training software has reduced up to 60% with its use.
The process of software development using the SAM model is as follows –
Step 1. Evaluation of past training practices
The first step deals with gathering as much information regarding the past training methods, practices, and their results. The skills that were worked upon, the strengths and the weaknesses of the organization and assets must be evaluated properly.
Step 2. Guage needs of trainers and trainees
The in-depth evaluation of training procedures, in conjunction with the dialogue between the trainers, trainees, and the developers helps understand the requirements from the training program that is being developed.
Step 3. Success measurement metrics
The next step deals with the metrics for success. Decide the metrics that would determine the success or failure of the endeavor. The criterion that would ensure the best rate of return on investment should be followed. It could be seamless onboarding, or lower employee turnover, or better safety standards. The benchmarks might differ for everyone.
Step 4. Multiple iterations of ideas to reach “the one”
Brainstorming with the associated stakeholders to reach the idea of the training program is taken care of in the next step. But this does not stop here. How this idea can be improved upon to work better? Further deliberation to make the software more effective, engaging, and fun for trainees takes place here.
Step 5. Test roll-out
This next step deals with the rollout of the test version of the idea, taking into account all the requirements according to available resources, licenses, and the trainers and trainees as well as the decided metrics.
Step 6. Make necessary adjustments
The following step requires the developers to make the necessary changes according to the invested stakeholders. And then, the test rolls out, again and again, to make sure that the product achieves what it set out to achieve.
Step 6. Design proof
In this step, the design proof is produced in front of the interested parties who have been giving their insights during the process.
Step 7. Final roll-out
Finally, the newly developed software is rolled out into the market.
SAM model successfully integrates the 3D’s of design, development, and delivery and their different iterations to achieve a successful platform that makes training easier and effective. And at the same time does not compromise on fun and engagement. It is something that can be integrated into your training program.
