Google+Thought Leadership Community

June 2015

Dear Readers,

It's never easy to eliminate a longtime, beloved training program, but when it's clear the program is underperforming tough decisions need to be made. Yet careful analysis can reveal viable options beyond simply slashing the program. Interviews with learners and managers can offer insight into what goals aren't being met, for example, and adjustments to weak areas of content can be made. For more ideas on how to handle such situations, don't miss our lead article this month. 

Also, mark your calendars for Wednesday July 15 when our sister newsletter, PresentationXpert, presents the free webinar Marvelous Makeovers, featuring presentation design guru Rick Altman. Rick's before-and-after slide makeovers will leave you amazed and offer great ideas for improving your own PowerPoint-based content; he'll also demonstrate how good slide design is about more than aesthetics.
