Training managers put a lot of effort while rolling out an eLearning project, as it involves many complex tasks.
As an eLearning professional, I often work with many training managers and admire their managerial skills. It involves a lot of work like training needs analysis, collecting content, dealing with Subject-matter Experts (SMEs) and developing the course for the stakeholders and learners.
Personally, I feel that dealing with the SMEs and getting their approval is the most difficult task. This is because they don’t have time and are not completely dedicated to their project.
I have seen many training managers struggling to get their projects reviewed and validated. Unfortunately, some projects are put on hold due to SMEs’ hectic schedules. There are a few training managers, who learnt some best practices to manage the SMEs for accomplishing the things.
Here are some lessons, which I have learnt from these successful training managers, to deal with SMEs.
