Job Aids

Can you respond quickly to customer needs, provide knowledge anytime, anywhere, and provide maximum value?

Job aids are very effective tools designed to meet today's performance challenges in an emerging global economy. They are targeted and robust.

Job aids save time and money.

The time it takes to develop a job aid is 3-5 times shorter than traditional instruction and implementation time is 3 times shorter. They also reduce formal training time and minimize the need for experience. Job aids are easier to change than formal training. 

Most importantly Job Aids focus attention on what the performers are expected to do and produce. A Job Aid is a tool to guide job performance in real time. This includes checklists, decision tables, flow charts (algorithms), worksheets and cookbooks.

Job aids solve retention problems and result in more accurate performance.

Job aids are more reliable than memory and quicker to develop than formal training. Job Aids develop clear and easy to follow instructions for employees to follow. Learn how to take complex information and make it simple for employees to follow. Learn how to duplicate the performance of your best employees. Learn how to design cost-effective Job Aids to use immediately upon returning to the organization after training. When the Job Aids are complete, people can read a step, then do the step. It is that simple.
