THE SIX STEPS OF PLANNING

?15,000 FEET

If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there!

Trainer Development Conference

slide7
STEP 1: DEFINE THE TASK
  • What should we know before accepting an assignment?
    • What are all the facts and figures?
      • Who, What , When, Where, How?
    • What are the objectives?
      • What are we trying to accomplish?

Trainer Development Conference

slide8
STEP 2: IDENTIFY RESOURCES
  • What should be considered when identifying resources?
    • What resources do we need to accomplish the task?
    • What resources do we already have?
    • Where do we get the resources we don’t have?
    • Will all the resources be available when needed?
    • Are there resources that require special attention?
      • Advanced planning or reservations
      • Significant expense items
      • Complicated logistics
    • Are there alternatives regarding resources?

Trainer Development Conference

STEP 3: CONSIDER ALTERNATIVES :

COURSE CONTENT

  • Are there alternate methods or procedures?
    • What type of demonstrations or exercises can be used?
    • What techniques are best for getting the message across?
    • What is the proper sequence/flow of the material?
    • What is the optimum group/team size?
    • What is the appropriate room layout?

PLAN B

STEP 3: CONSIDER ALTERNATIVES :

BACK-UP PLANS

  • How do we handle potential problems?
    • Are we prepared for equipment failures?
    • Can we re-arrange the course sequence if necessary?
    • Do we have fill-in staff if someone is absent?
    • Do we have modules that can be compressed or dropped
    • in the event time becomes an issue?

Are we prepared for the unexpected, and do we know which alternatives

to use (if necessary) that will allow the course to flow smoothly?

Trainer Development Conference

slide11
STEP 4: CREATE THE PLAN
  • Why is a written plan necessary?
  • What type of help is available for creating a plan?
    • Training session outlines are provided in BSA manuals.
    • Check with past course directors, and Training Committee.
  • It’s a permanent record.
  • Everyone will know what is expected, and when.
  • It can be a backdated checklist.
  • It can be re-used for a future course.

Trainer Development Conference

slide12
STEP 5: WORK THE PLAN
  • After the plan is written, what comes next?
    • Review all the steps of the plan
    • Hold staff development sessions
    • Confirm all logistics and arrangements
    • Do It! Hold the training course!

Follow the written plan, but be flexible and make adjustments as needed.

Trainer Development Conference

slide13
STEP 6: EVALUATE RESULTS
  • What aspects of a training course should be evaluated?
    • Did we accomplish the original goals/objectives?
    • What worked well, and what didn’t?
    • What was the reaction of the participants?
    • What have we learned from this experience?
    • What will we do different next time?

Obtain feedback from both course participants and staff members.

The six step process allows any step to be “re-visited” whenever it is necessary or beneficial.

SHORT-RANGE & LONG-RANGE PLANS

  • Both short-range and long-range plans are developed by
  • using the six step planning method.
  • Planning is crucial in administering and delivering an effective
  • training program.

  • better by participants.
  • The six step process allows any step to be “re-visited” whenever
  • it is necessary or beneficial.
