L&D: Tuesday L&D Processes Audit 28: Coached/Mentored T&D Deployment Process

T&D Process 7.7: Coached/Mentored T&D Deployment 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.

Overview of the Big Picture


T&D Process 7.7: Coached/Mentored T&D Deployment Process

Process Purpose

The Coached/Mentored T&D Deployment Process deploys all T&D using coaches and mentors to support the learners.


Process Description

The Coached/Mentored T&D Deployment Process provides for the delivery of all T&D, with the assistance of designated, and perhaps certified, coaches or mentors.

This type of T&D is very much like group-paced T&D, only the coach provides some one-on-one (or one-on-a-small-group) interaction on the job instead of an instructor/facilitator dealing with many learners, most likely in a traditional classroom setting.

This type of T&D is also very much like self-paced T&D because it offers more flexibility (depending on who the learner is or who the coach is) in timing, focus, and pacing. The coach/mentor is given structured T&D materials to guide their delivery, allowing for local customization if needed.

The coaches and mentors can be certified as needed/warranted by the topic or as dictated by law or regulation.
