The Comprehensive Training Delivery Methodology

With over 20 years of in-field training experience, we know exactly what trainers require to begin their training careers. ROUND™ provides clear and systematic training delivery, seamless skill transfer, measurable performance checks, and training effectiveness to help trainers:

• Systemize training delivery for a unified and consistent training experience and outcomes.
• Hands-on applications and performance feedback to ensure proper skill delivery.
• Optimize the training delivery to achieve training objectives efficiently and effectively.
• Provide the necessary structure to efficiently create skill-based training and information delivery while maintaining quality standards.
• Divide training into sessions to help trainers monitor their performance, control their own pace, and effectively drive the training session.
• Engage participants for a more comprehensive training session and ensure KSA transfer.
• Focus on skill application during training delivery by combining the Training Loop and Teaching Loop concepts.
• Document the training process for future improvements and standardization of the training performance.

What is ROUND?

Systematic Training Delivery Done Right

ROUND is an application-focused training delivery methodology that ensures efficient and effective trainer performance designed to create a measurable and standardized training performance, as well as provide the trainer with the required skills and tools to:

• Meet training objectives as the trainer will focus on the training scenario by providing consistent delivery, reducing wasted time and energy, and avoiding unnecessary activities and topics.
• Reach maximum training ROI by enhancing the trainer to fine-tune training scenarios and ensuring effective training depending on the need.
• Improve training proficiency and learning processes by providing the trainer with the required skills to guarantee skill transfer, ensuring skill retention through measured trainee performance.

The Five Stages of ROUND

The Methodology, Explored

Regardless of the duration of the training course or session, it always consists of multiple ROUNDs.
Each ROUND handles a specific topic, skill, or concept.
Each stage within ROUND is directly relevant to the course’s objectives or the training requirements.
The focus of each stage is flexible to meet the training performance criteria and industry needs and can be adjusted by the training beneficiary or subject matter experts (SMEs).

Stage 1: REV UP

Introduces the training topic efficiently to attract attention and prepare the trainees for the new concept or skill. Therefore, it is recommended to display the training content after this introduction. In addition, it's recommended for this stage to use at most 10% of the total allocated time of the complete ROUND.
This stage includes: preparing, warming up, grabbing attention, initiating, revising, and linking.

Stage 2: ON WE GO

Presents the content sequentially, allowing the participant to acquire new knowledge, skills, or both. Since this stage does not include any hands-on practice, it's recommended to use at most 20% of the total allocated time of the complete ROUND.
This stage includes: explaining the content, providing information and details, outlining procedural steps, and emphasizing important points.


Transforms what was presented and demonstrated in Stage 2 to imitate actual fieldwork for the participants and immerse them in the topic by applying and practicing the concepts. During this prime stage, skill transfer occurs. Therefore, 40% of the total allocated time of the complete ROUND is recommended.
This stage includes: experimenting, performing, practicing, applying, and trying hands-on.


In addition to linking the skills and information to the fieldwork, this stage aims to provide feedback and control the quality of individual or group performance. This stage offers quality checks and communicates feedback to ensure proper skill transfer. It's recommended for this stage to use at most 20% of the total allocated time of the complete ROUND.
This stage includes: evaluation, explaining exceptions, analyzing, solving application problems, and providing feedback to participants.


Wraps up and summarizes key points and topics presented through the previous ROUND stages. This stage also explains where the newly acquired skills fit in the big picture. It's recommended for this stage to use at most 10% of the total allocated time of the complete ROUND.
This stage includes: reviewing and linking, exploring career prospects, providing further readings, extra learning, and summarizing.
