5 Best Practices for User Adoption Strategy and Training
Reverse the 80/20 rule
Focus the initial "go-live" training primarily on the core 20% of the functionality that the employees will use 80% of the time.
Initial training sessions should concentrate on Speed to Efficiency of the greatest usage of the system. As part of your learning strategy consider ongoing or continuous education including additional functionality.
Align delivery modality to learner objectives and transfer. Instructor-led training in a hands-on lab environment is great for the "go-live" training. However, if the user will only complete a task occasionally, provide them with “How to" quick reference materials or leverage online courses and support material with microlearning.
Practice, Practice, Practice
Often we see new application training that “tells” about the system or “shows” the system (particularly in e-learning courses). In proficiency-oriented training such as software training, give the employee access to the software or a simulation environment. In fact, training is often more effective if they explore the program first, before attending the session. Remember, a key objective for the training is having the users demonstrate proficient in the training.
Train from the real world
Deliver training in a stable systems environment. An environment that mirrors the real-life environment. Creating "true-life" context, with real-world challenges, will make it easier to transfer new knowledge and skills to job duties. If an application screen is going to change after the training then training would be counterproductive to user adoption.
Don’t overwhelm them
Technology training doesn’t need to be complicated. However, for many employees learning a new system can be overwhelming. A few ideas to mitigate that feeling and increase adoption would keep them informed of the rollout progress, find your champions, link the training to your business processes, maintain communication and collaboration and celebrate and reward their success, and keep in mind the KISS Principal.
