Tips for Managing SME Relationships

Working with subject matter experts (SMEs) is a critical part of the training design process, but it isn’t always smooth sailing. As instructional designers, we often face situations where our interactions with SMEs have hindered the progress of the project. It takes specific strategies to get things back on track with your SMEs when things have gone south.

What can we do to maintain control of the process, so that our SMEs aren’t calling all the shots?

We provide strategies, checklists, and templates to help you build and maintain successful working relationships with your SMEs. This will help you avoid or reduce these types of problems in the future!

Do you find yourself stuck in never-ending review cycles? Are you wondering if your Subject Matter Expert actually got that last review request? Are you having trouble trying to decipher impractical or conflicting feedback?
