Can I can buy training course materials anywhere else
Of course, we are not the only course developers on the market. If you do any search on the internet you are bound to find a wide range of course material providers that will sell training materials to both trainers and business managers. So, who should you consider as a supplier choice of training course materials for development programs is simply down to your own needs.
That said, for many training course materials buyers around the world, Oak Innovation is the place to buy e-materials simply because we are serious about selling quality training course materials in the most practical and cost-effective way. Something, we are very proud of doing as well.
Can you research a new type of course for me?
We often get approached by people that want to find a new type of course. So, we get asked whether we can research the course content for them. Well, to be honest, we have the required capacity and expertize but we are always very clear from the outset. Often this is simply just really done to be cost-prohibitive.
Creating materials from scratch costs a lot of money and time. And, to expect that a course can be generated for a couple of hundred dollars is just not possible. And, we’re not trying to be strict, but no, we do offer content development services for leadership development courses.
Instead at Oak Innovation, we pour the eagerness of our staff to great courses into further researching and improving the range of courses that we currently offer. This keeps the costs of these leadership training course materials and maximizes the return that our customers receive from this content. And we don’t believe that we can really count the hundreds of thousands of dollars achieved by the delivery of change management training course materials that we know about.
Are there really no restrictions on customization?
There are two standard answers that other training content providers of leadership development training course materials offer when asked whether or not their material can be customized. These are: Yes, we provide a fee-based facility whereby our leadership materials can be customized to meet your specific requirements or Yes, we provide many OK to Copy pages in our courses.
Well, at Oak Innovation we believe that these positions actually restrict, rather than release, the benefits received from leadership training as they do not promote the cascading components and essential ingredients of all learning – meaningfulness, manageability, and comprehensibility. The following simple examples will demonstrate how facilitating customization of our change management course has enabled organizations to receive the maximum impact of our training course materials.
Meaningfulness – Realizing that major change was required within their organization, a large organization decided to develop business leaders. Rather than simply sending these employees to an external training course they sourced, customized, and branded our change management course materials using examples relevant to their own organization. By doing this, all participants accepted that the learning was necessary and took ownership of their own learning.
Manageability – A second major challenge faced when training employees is to ensure that the learner feels that the materials available are adequate to tackle the substantial demands on them. Through customization of our change leadership course materials, a growing service organization was able to effectively introduce and develop a new supervisor group.
Comprehensibility – For training to be effective the learner must feel that the content is clear, structured, and relevant to the situation in which it is to be applied. To illustrate, a medium-sized consultancy company customized and applied for our change management course within an organization they had been working with for several years. As they knew this organization very well they were able to apply this knowledge and structure the training content to reflect how employees operated.
How does Oak Innovation encourage ownership?
Encouraging organizations to take greater ownership of the development process is the cornerstone of all activity at Oak Innovation. Greater ownership over the training process can be obtained during the Analysis, Design, Implementation, and Evaluation stages of training.
Analysis – Every year thousands of dollars, if not millions, are spent on training without formal training needs analyses being performed.
At Oak Innovation we have removed many of the traditional barriers associated with sourcing leadership training content while at the same time ensuring that the maximum amount of ownership is generated by the organization over the training process.
Design – By removing the traditional barriers to personal development it means that an organization can customize and deploy these innovative and practical leadership training course materials wherever and whenever they deem appropriate.
Implementation – The real potential of Oak Innovation's change management training course material becomes apparent when we discuss the implementation of these courses within organizations. Here we believe the return lies in the versatility of our courseware and the imagination of the organization. Whether employed once or one hundred times Oak Innovation training course materials can be customized to suit the needs of the organization.
Evaluation – To assist the organization in determining the suitability of our training course materials and the associated level of change obtained from deploying our modules we have carefully developed and tested clear behavioral learning objectives for each of our modules. These learning objectives can be used in conjunction with existing broader evaluation methodologies within the organization.
