L&D: Tuesday L&D Processes Audit 24: T&D Scheduling Process

T&D Process 7.3: T&D Scheduling Process

Note: In my 2001 book I continued my decades old name for the profession as T&D – Training & Development.

Convert for your use as necessary. I will use both T&D and L&D in this weekly series for 2018.


Not all loose processes need to be tightened up.

You should only do that Investment if the Returns warrant.


Learning By Design vs Learning By Chance

When the Cost of Non-Conformance of poor Process/people Performance warrants the Investment in T&D/ Learning/Knowledge Management Content – then make those investments.

And – just because an L&D profession can determine a valid Learning Need and gap in Content – does not in and of itself warrant meeting that need – in any manner.

It’s a Business Decision. 


The L-C-S Framework View

I use both views…


Overview of the Big Picture


T&D Process 7.3: T&D Scheduling Process

Process Purpose

The T&D Scheduling Process is used to develop market-demand schedules of delivery for any T&D that is scheduled.


Process Description

Not all T&D is scheduled, nor should it be. Web/Internet deployments may or may not be scheduled. The types of Web and Internet deployment that may need to be scheduled are part of the new “collaborative” e-learning type T&D Events.

The point is that the schedule demand of the marketplace should be the starting point for a process to dictate the schedule for making those types of T&D available. It does most of it proactively based on the forecasted demand, but it can also be used reactively after a specific delivery has been requested.

This process requires something at the front end that gathers information about the “when” do they want it. The answer for this is to have a plan for T&D participation for each and every employee targeted (“pull” audiences) in the enterprise and for critical nonemployees as well.

Of course, not everyone will take T&D per their original plan, but models can be built over time to better adjust the demand forecast. This is nothing new in most businesses that must try to guess the consumption of their other products and services to avoid their own over- or understock situations.
