page to remind yourself who’d be able to add the most value to your team.
Different roles are required at different phases of the process:
At the start of the process, you’ll want to involve more Consultants, especially when conducting your needs analysis to understand the learner audience
Towards the middle of the process when you’re ready to brainstorm Learning Activities, you’ll need reliable Creators to build the content and assets
Towards the end of the process, you’ll want to connect with your Coaches so they can start learning the content and be ready to facilitate learning activities. Most people want to sign up as Coaches to present and facilitate, but encourage as many of these folks as possible to help as Creators
What’s the ideal number of people on a team?
The number of people on each team depends on the size of the learner group and the complexity of the topic. Too few people on team and it’ll be less representative of the audience. Too many, and it’ll slow the process down.
