Are you the trainer, instructional designer, coordinator, project manager, and business analyst for your organization, all in one? Are you constantly moving from one role to the next while feeling overwhelmed by endless training projects? As a one-person training team, it’s common to feel challenged by constant time management, project intake and prioritization, development, delivery, and analysis you have to do on a regular basis. How do you reclaim control from this chaos?

In this session, you’ll focus on practical steps you can take right now to make being a one-person training team easier through strategic planning and processes. You’ll explore strategies for creating structured processes and learn how to use your peers, requesters, and project sponsors to offset your workload. You’ll also find out about methods for focusing on core competencies. Through this session, you’ll learn how to transition from being a “jack of all trades and master of none” to a focused individual who can carefully navigate multiple projects and requests at once.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Techniques for creating a training intake process
  • Best practices for balancing all of your job responsibilities
  • Methods of organizing project tasks and deadlines
  • Strategies for communicating with your stakeholders
  • Strategies for setting expectations with your requesters and project sponsors
