Will worksheets for the Legislative Branch answer key programs be as valuable as the rest of your candidate training materials? Will they change the culture of your candidate trainings and help candidates achieve results? How will they affect your candidate reviews? Will the effects be positive or negative?
In an office environment, everyone knows what your work habits are. They know what you do when you don’t have a question or need help. The Worksheet and the Question Key take the guesswork out of their behaviors at work.
Even if your candidate trainings are fairly new and you’re still working to establish good working habits in your political campaign, is it worth the time and effort to make the process just a little easier for your candidates? I believe that is a good question to ask. I think we should at least consider the benefits of a Worksheet and Question Key when we’re evaluating candidates in our political campaigns.
But you should also remember that political campaigns, and even training materials for any type of professional or sales environment, are all about ROI analysis. Are you willing to put out the best training material you can in order to get the best return on your investment? If the answers are “no”maybe”, or if we’re not sure, consider what you might be missing.
Once you develop a good organizational structure, you won’t have to worry about whether it makes sense to create more question keys. You can keep all the rest of your candidate training materials small and focused, without worrying about how many of them you have, or how they’re going to fit into an office environment.
I believe that the Worksheet and Question Key and a new model of question writing can have some great effects. We know that the Worksheet works well because it helps you teach people at the start of a job, and that it can be used in a number of ways after that point. In addition, it can help you address issues which arise as a result of the candidate training itself.
Perhaps we will see candidates who no longer need the Worksheet to help them prepare for a job interview. Maybe it will help them understand the importance of the products they are being asked to endorse. Or maybe it will help them to learn when they need help with something, and where they should go for help.
I believe that the Worksheet will be a good candidate training tool. It may even be the best.
