Subject Matter Experts (SMEs)
Facilitating and curating the knowledge from Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) is a key part of Blends Discovery phase. We use workshopping and design thinking exercises to streamline the process – the information informing the creation of the best possible eLearning.
Below are some key questions that Blend always start with, digging deeper when needed to get the most insight we can.
