How To Design and Deliver Effective Trainings



| 1:00 pm

- 2:00 pm



Are you looking to train your department or agency staff on a procurement process, policy or new initiative—such as the basics of procurement in your government, how to write an RFP, or how to form an evaluation committee—but unsure where to start? While you could queue up a slide deck and talk to your staff for an hour, it’s unlikely that that is going to result in clear understanding and actionable next steps.

The Procurement Excellence Network (PEN) hosted a session on how to design and deliver procurement trainings effectively to agencies and departments. An effective training is designed with information that is presented in digestible chunks, built logically, and engaging for your staff to get involved. We provided strategies and tips to reach your audience where they’re at.
