Don’t Have Them Sign Off, Have Them Sign On

May 16, 2012

Kirkpatrick Quick Tip Vol. 2 #12

Sign-off is a common term for obtaining key stakeholder buy-in for an initiative. Unfortunately it sets the wrong tone by implying that all executives have to do is sign an agreement, provide funding and then sit back and let training execute the program.

For your next initiative, have a “signing on” meeting to discuss the active and ongoing role stakeholders and others will play in the success of the initiative. Assign roles and responsibilities, and create deadlines and reporting timelines.
