phasing large training volume for new hires

Hi all,

some of our new hires have a huge training load to complete in the first 1-2 months.

does anyone have any suggestions other than splitting curricula, how to phase the training rollout in a preferably not so manual way?

Thanks for any thoughts

I don't have a solution unfortunately but will be interested to hear what others do, as we are faced with a similar issue.

I am also interested if any solutions are offered.

You could consider assigning additional curricula after a certain item is completed, via an Assignment Profile. Unfortunately you cannot assign based on curricula. Which now that I think about it makes sense since curricula status can fluctuate.

You could look at setting all the other items in the first curriculum as a prerequisite to the one item to trigger the assignment profile. This way you can control the timing a little better.

Hope that helps!

Solutions vary based on the level problem has reached.

- If gone past management and up to Sr. Mgmt then you need to reform your training (Time consuming effort initially but could save significant time in future)

- If systematic issue: then there are several approaches: Stagger assignments manually; Use APs / pre-requisite (be mindful); Program feature; review curriculum frequency

- the trust is there is no going around it until all the stakeholders see it as an organizations problem and collectively agree to solve it.

taking the question in its simplest form, my suggestion would be to allow a longer time to complete certain types of training.  We've bracketed training into into bands between critical/non critical and allow between 5-90 days depending on the criticality.  This can also be further split into required for role or not which can help define criticality.

Have you thought of using Programs? 

Assignment Profiles can assign learning based on completion of an Item.  It's a work around.

Hi @Verheijen Petra ,

Hope you are doing good and remember me.

As I have worked for Astellas and I can suggest that unfortunately Curricula is the only way BUT you can use requirements in it.

A requirement allows the user to use a selective number of items from pool of items.

I do understand that in Astellas many users are not supposed to take every item in the curriculum and that's why requirement-based assignment can be leveraged and is done via curriculum. This might reduce the load of trainings in the first couple of months from Hire Date.

This link might help:

Please let me know if any question.

Thanks and Regards,

Sumit Kumar

Thanks Sumit! Not sure if this will be an option since all items will need to be completed but very much appreciated the input.
