My Experience with Creating a Scenario-based Course: Part 2

In my last blog post, I shared my experience with gathering content for creating a scenario-based course. It was an interesting exercise, where I was able to chalk out the procedure followed to resolve customer issues and the critical steps one needs to follow during the call.

I had all the content I needed to develop the storyline for my scenarios. And the first thing I did to create a storyline was to jot down the steps a customer care executive will follow to help them resolve their issues. Here are the steps:

My Experience with Creating a Scenario-based Course: Part 1

Last week, in a conversation with a Captivate Customer Care Team Manager, I learned that she had some training requirement for the new joinees in the team. We were generally discussing how to train the new employees quickly and effectively.

It’s a very important job and they have to do it right each time they pick up the phone and talk to the customer.
