Training Approach

Training Strategy

Using Technology Better begins all training engagements by asking the client to complete a training needs questionnaire.

This provides us with information about their organisation, technical environment, users and training requirements. As part of this process we also provide the client with general advice around effective training programs.

The information in the training needs questionnaire is used to draft and quote on a customised training program, which is then reviewed and approved by the client.

Training Sessions

Using Technology Better’s training sessions include a mixture of facilitator demonstration and hands-on participant activities.

In our experience, it is most effective when participants attend the session with a device and undertake the training from within their own accounts.

This allows participants to use the training time to configure and setup their own accounts, eliminating the need for this to be fitted into daily work activities after the training.

HAPPY CLIENTS

Training Intensives and
Workshop Case Studies

PR Industry

Client

In 2018, Using Technology Better designed and delivered a two phase post-migration training program for this New Zealand based graphic design firm. The initial goal of the training program was to reduce frustration with G Suite, with the long term aim of facilitating a change in culture and collaboration that can lead to transformative practices.

Property Industry

Client

Using Technology Better provided on-site training and support to this Canberra-based property developer in October 2017. The transition involved approximately 50 staff, who received 3 days of pre-migration training and 1 day of post-training support. The pre-migration training involved sessions customised to the needs of different user groups, and one-on-one training for senior management.

NSW Government

Client

During October and November 2018, Using Technology Better designed and delivered a three week G Suite training program for Service NSW. The program had three key goals: to upskill the organisation’s head office staff who had previously migrated to G Suite with minimal training, to develop the capacity of a selected group of ‘Google Guides’, and to prepare a group of Contact Centre staff to train colleagues during their upcoming G Suite migration.
