How To Kickstart Your Online Training Strategy With A Free 30 Day Bootcamp

Modern training is powerful. With more and more advanced features being added to Learning Management Systems every day, online training has the potential to be more effective than ever.

But this increase in the power of training systems has led to an increase in complexity. Modern day trainers have to deal with extended feature sets and a massive depth of customisation and configuration. When almost anything is possible, it’s hard to know where to start.

McKinsey reports that only 25% of training programs measurably improve business performance - meaning that a shocking 75% of corporate training strategies are either ineffective or aren't being measured.

Here are some of the problems people are dealing with:

  • How do you set up a training process that comprehensively tracks your training outcomes and lets you clearly see impact on business performance and ROI?
  • How do you design your training strategy so that people can learn at their own pace, but still ensure employees finish their training on time?
  • How can you structure your training process to allow for agile, reactive training and shorter training production times?

The good news is, once an effective training strategy is properly set up, it can begin to run of its own accord. And when an effective training strategy is in place, trainers can take full advantage of the power of training - think more engaged learners, automated processes, clear data on training effectiveness. Training can become a business’ secret weapon.

Free 30 Day Online Training Bootcamp by eCoach

But how do you get into that 25% of companies using training to drive business performance? eCoach’s online training bootcamp was designed to provide expert guidance for designing and implementing a modern day training strategy.

The bootcamp is a free, guided 30 day program in which applicants are paired with a training specialist and customer success manager to set up a comprehensive training process that they can roll out across their business.

Over the course of the 30 days, applicants will have their current training process (if they have one) audited by their training specialist, and then work together with their specialist to design and implement a whole new strategy.

The bootcamp launched earlier this year and saw hugely positive results for the first round of applicants; within the 30 days, one applicant rebuilt their 1,000 employee training program from the ground up and successfully launched it; another moved away from offline training and began training employees online across 10 locations.

The 30 day bootcamp is tailored to individual use cases, so will look different for each applicant, but will most likely include the creation of training resources, setup of data and reporting, and training in the eCoach platform.

eCoach values the program at $750.

About The Bootcamp Application

Applicants should leave the program with a modern training strategy and a clear, actionable plan for implementing it - if it hasn’t already been implemented by the end of the bootcamp.

The program is currently accepting both applicants new to online training, and those who have an existing training process but are looking to improve it.

However, due to the hands on nature of the bootcamp and the unparalleled free access it gives to training experts, eCoach are only accepting 20 applicants for the program. Companies can apply for a spot here. Better get in there quick!

Kickstart Your Training Strategy

The bootcamp may signal a change in the online training industry, where a lack of customer support from Learning Management System providers and the expensive nature of training consultants has meant that companies are often left to figure out their own training methods on the fly.

Looking to the future, we may begin to see more eLearning vendors offer expertise alongside software to ensure users can maximise their training outcomes.

Too often, businesses will purchase a training platform first and then design their training strategy around the capabilities of that tool. Now, as services like the eCoach's bootcamp and social platforms like Twitter and LinkedIn provide easier access to training experts, businesses are better equipped to design the strategy first and then find a tool to fit that strategy. Are we witnessing the tide turning?
