Five Reasons Why Customer Education Assignments Can Seem Like 'Mission Impossible'

  1. Breakneck Product Cycle
    Somehow you need to keep your course content current – even when you’re bushwhacked by last minute software version changes. All the more challenging now that you're developing for both Web based and instructor led delivery formats.

  2. Sales Apathy
    You are at the mercy of a sales organization that is focused almost 100% on core HW and SW product sales. Yet year in and year out you are tasked to achieve stretch revenue goals.

  3. Unreasonable Expectations
    Quality and customer satisfaction expectations require you to provide a uniformly excellent learning experience to students who come to you with vastly different backgrounds and expectations. And satisfy the higher-ups who sent them, as well.

  4. Conflicting Goals
    You must balance leveraging education in the strategic interests of your corporation – with delivering on short-term revenue and profit goals.

  5. Minimal Appreciation
    You are challenged with communicating upward the achievements and needs of a business top management doesn’t understand and can’t find the time to learn.
