It’s a great feeling when all the needs-assessing, info-gathering, SME-wrangling, script-writing and other just-getting-ready details of a workplace learning program finally fall into place.
It’s time to move over to program development, at last!

I think it’s because most of us are stuck working without a framework for our building. Which means (if you’re anything like me) we kind of make it up as you go along.
Problem is, that equates to many decisions ahead. Every slide is a little project of its own, and that just bogs us down.
Recently, I realized something I wish I’d realized sooner:
Anything that simplifies slide-level decision making speeds up the program development process.
