PHASE 1: Planning
Step 1: Requirements and target audience analysis
Assess the various audiences for BASCS training to determine requirements.
More than one training module may need to be developed since function-based classification impacts more than the IM arena. For example, there will be a need for training /orientation at a high level to educate non-IM operations managers who need to understand the role of function-based classification and the link to their work. Training may also need to be provided for IM managers who will need to develop and validate the function-based models for their own institution specific areas.
Potential target audiences could be;
Step 2: Consultations
Once the various potential audiences for the BASCS training courses are identified, hold consultations with those target audience groups to assess the level and type of training required and the training tools required to achieve this.
Research any training available for similar tools where possible.
Step 3: Assess best means of developing training
Training module(s) can be developed in-house at LAC or by contracting with outside expertise.
Training could be developed in collaboration with users in pilot-test sites or separately by the BASCS specialists, followed by testing and validation by potential users.
Ensure lessons learned while developing and implementing BASCS systems are applied in developing the training.
Step 4: Content assessment
Ensure content is appropriate to audience and need. Content may have to include general communication and marketing info such as;
Step 5: Assess best method of delivering the training
Step 6: User Groups & feedback
Plan a means of obtaining feedback on training and continuous update of the training module.
The user group for this purpose could be the broader BASCS user group, as opposed to one formed specifically for developing BASCS training.
PHASE 2: Development and Delivery
Step 1: Develop the training modules as per needs identified during phase 1.
Step 2: Pilot the training by presenting test sessions to select audiences.
Step 3: Deliver training via agreed means and channels identified during Phase 1.
Step 4: Monitor and evaluate continuously.
