In every change management consultation, the transmission of knowledge is an essential component. There are a variety of methods that cover different needs. But what are they?
On one hand, there are workshops, online and blended training, traditional training, and mentoring. These formats make it possible to convey specific knowledge and actively apply it. For example, blended training utilizes a mix of digital learning content and in-person events.
Another method of knowledge transfer is On-the-Job Training. In this, employees learn directly while working. This could be in the form of onboarding events or plans.
A unique role is played by so-called knowledge multipliers. They are further educated through Train-the-Trainer programs and then pass on the knowledge in their departments. This ensures that everyone receives the same information and is on the same page.
Leader-Led Workshops are a special form of the multiplier principle. Here, leaders conduct workshops with their teams. They receive special instructions and templates to ensure the workshop is conducted successfully.
However, not all training methods are centered around knowledge transfer. Coaching and Peer Coaching are more about accompanying employees. They are supported in adjusting their attitudes and mindsets concerning the change process.
