Train the Trainer Model for Scaling Training in your Organization


Published on

How do you effectively scale skill-based, quality training across your organization?

Over the years, I’ve experimented with different ideas/models to scaling skill-based training across an organization. In the last 4 years, I’ve pretty much settled down on the following model. Its very useful when mentoring teams on skills like Test-Drive-Development (TDD), Behavior-Driven Development (BDD), Product Discovery, Writing User Stories, Evolutionary Design, Design Patterns, Problem Solving, etc. I’ve successfully implemented this model at some very prominent fortune 500 enterprises.
