L&D: Tuesday L&D Processes Audit 40: T&D Facilities Development and Deployment Process

T&D Process 10.7: T&D Facilities Development and 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. 


The L-C-S Framework View

Overview of the Big Picture



T&D Process 10.7: T&D Facilities Development and Deployment Process

Process Purpose

The T&D Facilities Development and Deployment Process builds or acquires and maintains all of the facilities (buildings and grounds) needed by T&D.


Process Description

The T&D Facilities Development and Deployment Process will be driven by the method for T&D deployment, the number of staff members, the locations of where T&D will do its business, and the responsibilities for those locations.

If every T&D product was intended to be delivered electronically to the desktop (heaven and shareholders forbid!), then there wouldn’t be a need for classrooms, just space for the developers and administrators to sit. A more likely scenario will require a blend of facility types.

This process may be owned by another enterprise/corporate group, but this T&D process ensures that T&D-specific input is provided to the owning organization, in order to ensure that T&D form follows T&D function (both current-state function and near-term, future-state function).
