No matter how good you are at it, training design takes time. And sometimes, it's time that you simply don't have. But it can be really hard to let go and trust someone else to interpret your ideas and needs correctly, so we rarely outsource design.
Which is perhaps why so many people take short-cuts, and fail to design in detail.
Better a less than perfect job done by you than take a chance on someone else.
But outsourcing training design can be LIBERATING!
When I took on design from other L&D professionals, I found it worked best when they could articulate what they wanted the finished event to cover, look and feel like WITHOUT being fixed on more than few points. It was easy for me to keep these key points in mind, include a couple of specific exercises and then use my own expertise to craft the rest of the session. It was good for THEM to allow me to bring my expertise to the project to keep things fresh.
Plus (of course) it freed up their time to do other things that were more difficult to outsource.
So if you want to outsource your training design, but aren't sure how to, this How To Guide will help you.
