So, JIT learning means anybody can access any training necessary for their development. This training is freely available online, supported by mobile learning and bite-sized training, and is always accessible.
However, when we talk about your organization, its training needs, and the availability of training content that is unique to it, the JIT learning concept may appear elusive.
What we mean is that the training needed for a software that your organization uses may easily be available online.
But does that training take into account your organization’s unique use-case for the same software? Or, what are the chances of finding such unique training free of cost? Moreover, if your organization is ready to pay for this online training, will it prove to be financially feasible to buy the course for all your employees?
Providing in-house training content is better for your employees and your organization. However, is it of any use if the training reaches your employees after the need for it has passed? This is where JIT learning makes most sense and also presents better benefits to your organization in the long run.
Just-in-Time learning at the workplace takes on a slightly increased role as compared to regular training because training is now developed at the very moment that the need for training arises. As compared to regular training where the training arrives much after the need arises because of the extensive planning and development period.
