    Although we've had to reschedule the ATD Forte conference for late August, we continue to work hard to create value for our talent development community. We’ve reached out to our conference presenters to see if they'd be willing to share their experience and expertise via webinar; the response was overwhelming!  

    Each Friday from 12:00pm – 1:00pm, an executive from some of the largest organizations in the world will present relevant content with practical takeaways all talent development professionals can utilize. Note that this content will be related to and different from their ATD Forte presentation. 

    We hope you’ll join us every Friday at noon. If you miss a session, we will be posting them to our ATD Forte YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe so you can easily keep track of the videos we post.

    April 10:  JD Dillon, Chief Learning Architect, Axonify

    This session will focus on effective methods of knowledge sharing and the learning ecosystems that will lead to high performance.

    New product launches often fail because subject matter experts can struggle to simplify product knowledge for salespeople. In this session, you will learn the results of a comprehensive study conducted by the University of Northern Colorado and Grannis Group that asked questions such as:

    How do B-to-B salespeople prefer to learn?

    How should content be structured and delivered?

    What are the best ways to engage salespeople and motivate them to learn?

    What training methods yield the best results?

    What are practical ways to make training “sales friendly?”

    Specifically, the study identifies the most effective training design and delivery methods for HR professionals, product leaders, subject matter experts, and others responsible for training salespeople about new—and existing—offerings. Ultimately, by improving the product training process, salespeople will sell new offerings faster and more efficiently, and the risk of failed product launches will be greatly reduced.

    Learning Objectives

    At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

    • Speak the language of salespeople; improve their understanding of salespeople
    • Link communications, training, and product knowledge to the sales process
    • Make sales training more relevant
    • Improve engagement with salespeople
    • Increase revenues
    • Close the communication gap between HR, Marketing, and Sales
    • Implement a 12-step product knowledge template

    ATD Capability Model

    This session complements the instructional design competencies.

    Do you really know how to write good assessment questions especially for multiple choice. Multiple choice may be the most used yet misunderstood method of assessment there is. Do you know how to check for reliability and validity, and have it match the purpose of the assessment?

    Come to this session and get a blueprint for an assessment as well as learn how the question writing and reviewing process should work. Learn to create the Question Stem and then construct the Answer Choices.

    This is a great session for anyone who needs to create assessments but has never been to formal training. We will also give an example of how this can be delivered in an authoring tool.
