20 Questions L&D should ask before talking about training by Jeff Kortenbosch Trai­ning is rare­ly the solu­ti­on to a pro­blem.”

Kor­ten­bosch starts pro­vo­ca­tively. And he reso­na­tes with all of us in the L&D busi­ness when he asks us whe­ther we want to be part of the pro­blem or of the solu­ti­on. We ful­ly agree with his appeal:

We need to stop being a cour­se fac­to­ry and start buil­ding lear­ning and per­for­mance solu­ti­ons that work for the long term.”

His 20 ques­ti­ons gui­de agen­ci­es and com­pa­nies ali­ke. With the help of his ques­ti­ons, Kor­ten­bosch encou­ra­ges the rea­der to get to the bot­tom of the pro­blems and deve­lop solu­ti­ons that work.

His ques­ti­ons address which pro­blem should actual­ly be sol­ved or which chan­ges should a trai­ning achie­ve. And it is pre­cise­ly in this regard that Kor­ten­bosch’s words hit home:

Upgrade your lear­ners, not your trai­ning!

His book con­tains 20 prac­ti­cal ques­ti­ons that com­pa­nies and agen­ci­es, working hand in hand, must ans­wer befo­re del­ving into the deve­lo­p­ment of trai­ning mea­su­res. With every ques­ti­on, Kor­ten­bosch pro­vi­des the appro­pria­te back­ground and assi­s­tance to encou­ra­ge the joint dis­cus­sion and reso­lu­ti­on.

Here are some examp­les:

  • What is the pro­blem or chan­ge you are try­ing to address?
  • Do you have an idea for a solu­ti­on in mind alrea­dy?
  • What would be the impact on the orga­niz­a­ti­on if we do not­hing?
  • How can we mea­su­re the impact of the solu­ti­on?
