I recently discovered a very exciting topic related to learning: compliance training! You might think I’m kidding but, in fact, it is the truth.
To be honest, it wasn’t love at first sight. It took a while but the compliance training paradox did its work. What do I mean by that? Nobody likes compliance training. Not learning leaders, not learning designers, nor the ones we tend to refer to as learners: the professionals who have to ‘digest’ the compliance training offered.
At the same time as individuals, we want the pilots who fly the plane we travel with to have completed all their compliance training. We want the surgeon and medical teams who will be ‘working on us’ to have completed their compliance training. The same goes for those who prepare our food or give us financial advice. We want our loved ones to return safe and healthy after a day at work. So the world needs compliance training that makes sense. And learning professionals are the ones who have to design and provide it.
It’s time to make compliance training great again. In my point of view, a good analysis is the first crucial step to shift compliance training that makes sense from nonsense compliance training. And I don’t mean a training needs analysis. I mean a broader performance analysis. You will find some important resources for that in this edition of the learning notes.
