Just-in-time training (JITT) delivers timely, bite-sized content to employees. With tools like Continu's LMS, JITT boosts retention and productivity.

Develop a Training Manual That Works

In today's fast-paced world, waiting isn't an option. Your team needs skills now, not later.

That's where just-in-time training comes in. 

It's quick, it's relevant, and it's exactly what your employees need to tackle challenges head-on.

But how do you roll out training that's both immediate and impactful? With Continu, it's simpler than you think.

Our modern learning platform is built for this—delivering the right training, at the right time, right when your team needs it.

Let's break down the steps to implement just-in-time training:

Step #1: Identify Immediate Learning Needs

First up, know what your team needs to learn. It's not about guessing. It's about knowing. 

With Continu's Assessments, creating a training needs assessment is a breeze.

Shoot out a quick quiz. See where the gaps are. It's that easy. Assessments give you the data you need to tailor your training perfectly.

Add assessments to identify missing skills and knowledge.

No more one-size-fits-all training programs. It's about precision. It's about relevance. With Continu, you're always on target.

Now that you know what your team needs, what's next? Crafting that killer content.

Step #2: Create Engaging Microlearning Content

Did you know people are 75% more likely to watch a video than to read print? That's a game-changer for training.

In a world where attention is premium, videos and mixed media are your best allies.

With remote working being so common, training needs to be as flexible as your team. 

That's the beauty of Continu's cloud-based learning platform.

Step #5: Automate Training Delivery

Let's get smart with training delivery. Manual? That's old news. LMS automation is where it's at. 

Enter Continu's Workflows.

Step #6: Encourage Self-directed Learning

Empowerment is key in learning. It's about giving your team the reins. 

With Continu's Self-directed Learning Paths, that's exactly what you do.

Craft learning paths that inspire exploration. Let employees choose their adventure. It's learning that adapts to them, not the other way around.

Structure your training program with customizable learning paths.

This autonomy boosts motivation. When employees control their journey, engagement skyrockets. 

They learn because they want to, diving deep into topics that matter.

Continu makes self-directed learning not just possible but practical.

Step #7: Collect Feedback and Iterate

The final piece? Feedback. It's the gold that lets your training shine brighter.

With Continu's Feedback Tools, gathering insights is part of the process.

Enable ratings and feedback on training to see its impact and reception with employees.

Hear directly from your team. What's working? What's not? 

Continu's tools make it easy to collect and analyze feedback, turning opinions into action.

This loop of feedback and iteration keeps your training relevant and impactful. It evolves with your team, ensuring it always meets their needs.

With Continu, feedback isn't an afterthought. It's a core part of your learning and development strategy.
