New Product Training

Maintaining product knowledge within a company and across it’s extended reseller network is vitally important to all customer facing teams: sales, support, pre-sales, professional services etc. The fact that eLearning can reach a world wide audience, crossing time zones and be taken any time and anywhere often means this is the only realistic way to roll out ‘Go-to-market’ training. At LINC-Learning we strongly believe that instructor led training cannot be replaced at all levels by online learning but new product training is one area where technology really can fill the gaps that classroom training cannot reach in the appropriate time frame.
New Product Training is often a balance of accuracy, in leaving the final content development until all the features and testing on a new product are complete, and getting the information out to the field in a timely fashion. Because of this time critical nature we find New Product Training is often more rough and ready, perhaps supported by webinars or content created by the program team and usually containing simple audio and visuals with little interaction. Having said that the content is highly valuable and if packaged correctly can be easily re-purposed to update user training courses or create little ‘how-to’ nuggets around particular features. At this point the content can be made more rich with interactions, knowledge checks or quizzes.
At LINC-Learning we have many years of experience working with program teams using the Agile development process and creating ‘Go-to-market’ training programs.
