Sharing My Process and Expectations with My Stakeholders #wolweek

Over the years, I have written my share of posts about working with SMEs. However, there is no single, perfect approach to working with SMEs since they differ as well as each project differs. In my latest attempt to making the process a bit easier, I have created a document that explains to SMEs and stakeholders my process of creating courses and their role in this process. I always take the time to explain this process and the expectations for the SMEs and reviewers, but from my experience, they don't always retain all the finer details and sometimes misinterpret their responsibilities.

So I wrote this up, which gives my SMEs and all other stakeholders involved a better understanding of my process. Hopefully, you too will find it useful when working with your stakeholders and maybe also see how I approach working with mine.

A link to the doc is here. Feel free to adapt it for your use. Any input on how it can be improved is always welcome too. 

FYI: It has been a while since I have written a post on my blog, but it being Work Out Loud Week, I thought it would be a good time to share this and blow the dust off this old blog.


  1. Fabulous Jeff! Listened to an episode of Instructional Redsign with Cara and Joe, and just loved your perspective on sharing and working with SMEs to set expectations and place importance on their roles (more than just looking for typos). Thanks so much!!!

    1. Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed the podcast. Cara and Joe do such a great job with their podcasts and I'm glad people are finding my episode valuable too.
