Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) are more than just content experts, they’re critical in the effective transfer of skills and knowledge to others. Project launches, product updates and IT roll-outs are just a few of the initiatives that require SME support.

However, there is also an inherent expectation that because the SMEs understand the 'WHAT' they will understand the 'HOW' of training.

It is vital to realise that whilst there are often standards relating to content, (the ‘WHAT’), this only makes up 50% of the learning equation. Equal consideration needs to be given to the ‘HOW’ if training is to be truly effective; this is often referred to as training the trainer and is where we are experts.

How training is delivered has the greatest impact on our learning experience. It is essential to understand the learner’s motivation or willingness to grasp new skills or knowledge and apply them competently and consistently.
