Focus of a train-the-trainer workshop

The TTT workshop is primarily designed to prepare internal multipliers so they can train their own workforce. The aim is to cover not only content-based and functional topics, but also with self-teaching topics and concerns that are relevant as they influence factors that affect acceptance and usage.

Strategic topics

  • Culture and positioning
    • "Clearly communicate what the system is meant for and what to do with it"
    • "Connect with cultural change - systemically centralized collaboration across department boundaries"

  • Aims for using an intranet
    • Personal
      • Time-saving
      • Transparency
      • Data consistency
      • Fewer emails
      • Fewer 'loose' files
  • Training sessions for specific user groups
    • Training for space administrators
    • Training for normal users
  • Training sessions for target groups
    • Business units

    • Consider technical problems (limitations)

    • Consider functional limitations

    • Consider limitations on content

  • Common themes (an important aspect for learning)
  • Amount of training
