There are a few times when I use job aids vs. a full instructional project:
- A new process that hasn’t been documented yet or will have updated documentation soon
- Hard to remember facts (e.g., tribal knowledge)
- Helpful ways to find SOPs, knowledge articles and guidelines
If you don’t have access to a graphic designer or Photoshop, PowerPoint is a simple tool to create job aids.
The “Right on Target” job aid is a 3 x 5 slide. This is a good size for your learners to tape on their computers.
