The Right Way to Assess. The Exact Knowledge Needed.

Too many organizations treat training like a shotgun. They throw a bunch of training at their people, and then hope that most of it is relevant and that it "sticks."

To borrow the familiar analogy, training shouldn't be a shotgun. It should be a rifle.

Tooling U-SME offers numerous online assessments that allow you to target the exact needs of your people. The result is an individually tailored training curriculum for each person, linked to just the right amount of training. Effective training establishes a baseline of knowledge for each person, compares that baseline to the knowledge and skill requirements of a role, and then applies the exact amount of training to close the gap, validating that the knowledge and skills have been retained and applied on the job. The bottom line is that effective assessment of knowledge is a critical step in your overall training plan.

With dozens of industry-backed assessments at your disposal, chances are that you can get started right away. Even better—every assessment can be customized to the exact requirements of your organization.
