Or, if you’re a provider, how many times have you laboured over a proposal only to find – on rejection – that it all hinged on a vital piece of information you didn’t have? I’ve worked on both sides of the fence: for an e-learning development company and now (admittedly for far less time) in an in-house capacity. If suppliers have to not only provide reams of background information (as well as the more valuable solution-specific information) but also manipulate that information to your template, you risk receiving vast quantities of mediocre content.

Learning 2012: what worked, what didn’t, even better if…?

Good To Great

The size is much more convenient than the A4 programmes often provided, and the glossy finish meant it was durable and survived in tact despite being shoved in and out of my bag dozens of times every day.

I’m a thorough note-taker so used a separate notebook rather than the pages provided in the guide, but this was another nice touch. What worked. really liked this structure.
