3 steps to overcome the Forgetting Curve

3 steps to overcome the Forgetting Curve

You have planned a two-day training with the greatest trainer in the country and pulled your most expensive employees out from work for the training. And then you find yourself wondering how to overcome the nightmarish phenomenon of the Forgetting Curve depicted by this graph?

forgetting curve between memory retention and days after training
The graph represents the retention percentage as days pass after a training session. You can practically visualize the training ROI sliding down that curve.

How can you ensure that your organization does not suffer due to this? The answer lies in learning automation. You can use learning automation not only for your digital learning initiatives but also to maximize the ROI from the classroom trainings.

Here are a few points for you to ponder over and figure out if you are the exception to the norm.
1. It starts before the training
Provide a short pre-training learning or assessment module to the people nominated for the training. This ensures that people get into the training with some preparation. Also, you and the trainer can figure out the areas of focus from the learning analytics of the pre-training module.
2. Post training module
Use a summary module to provide a massive recall for the attendees. Ensure that you do this within two to three days of the training.
3. Regular drip of modules
Create a regular stream of micro learning nuggets that the attendees can go through. These can be as short as 5-10 minutes learning modules, and it is even better if these are interactions or assessments.

The planning is as easy as that. Would you agree that this would result in your trainings being more effective? Let me know what you think by sending me an email.
