    An Innovative Training Model for Successful XML Adoption
    Date: Thursday, June 7, 2012
    Time: 11:00 am PDT | 2:00 pm EDT




    Moving to component content management is more than adopting a new tool; it changes the way you work. When implementing that kind of change, your success depends on the people. Writers adopting new XML systems struggle with the training they receive. Often, it is disconnected from their daily work and real-world challenges. Managers are nervous about the potential impact to business deliverables that can result from such a disconnect.

    To avoid this, Cisco created customized training that integrated ‘using the tools’ with their business processes. The training was developed through a collaborative development process between Cisco stakeholders and learning consultants from Lasselle-Ramsay.

    The result was a hands-on workshop where students were able to work with real-world content and training delivered by Cisco writers to ensure credibility. Student evaluations and rapid time to mastery were used to validate the effectiveness of the approach.

    In this webinar, representatives from the team identity the key success factors in this case study and why this approach should be adopted as a best practice by teams moving to a new, structured approach to developing and delivering their content.
