Development Process

While each situation is unique, and based on your needs, there are some common steps: 

  • Analysis - Where are the gaps? What competencies do you want to focus on? Who will be the audience? 
  • Design - Content, format, activities, materials, objectives. 
  • Development - Pilot where possible, materials and content review.
  • Implementation - Roll out, delivery schedule and time-table. 
  • Evaluation - Post course delivery. Did we achieve our goals?
