Anyone who has done classroom or corporate training can tell you that not everything goes as perfectly as you’d like. Let’s say you’ve
for a wonderful new process, designed the
for it, and tested it with multiple technical staff. You’ve planned and scheduled and tested and confirmed weeks ahead of time, but then the moment finally arrives when you actually have to demonstrate the process—and it fails.
Now what do you do?
One of the things that I enjoy about corporate training is having things go wrong. Call me weird, but life isn’t perfect. I love it when I have to think on my feet.
I recently had an opportunity to get back in the classroom and teach content that I had designed as an instructional designer. It was very exciting, and also a great reminder of how things can go wrong no matter how much preparation you do.
