Custom Kitting: Delegation at Its Finest

Published by Gina Wentling | Filed under: Associations, Fulfillment, Training

11-30-15 - SmManaging your association’s continuing education (CE) program is a huge job and it takes an enormous amount of time and energy to pull it off. There are always more tasks to be done than time to do them. It’s tempting to try to do it all, but there simply isn’t enough time to focus on high-value activities like curriculum development and all of the details that come along running a CE program. The best way to conserve your energy for meaningful work is to delegate tasks that are important, but lower-value, in the grand scheme of your duties.

Accept the help you need to get your CE materials and other items to your instructors by working custom kitting into your fulfillment process. Many providers will take on the task of hunting down office supplies as well as course books, instructor manuals, and learning guides. Surely you would rather spend that time doing work that’s more mission-critical and interesting.

A typical kit, sent to the site of a CE course, might include the following:

  • 25 course books
  • 1 instructors manual
  • 25 learning guides
  • 25 exams
  • 25 highlighters
  • 25 packs of sticky notes
  • 25 pencils
  • 1 wall chart for the classroom
  • 25 completion certification

Save time and hassle while giving your instructors a useful, prepackaged kit they can use to move on to the business of teaching. Custom kitting gives you the option to take the smaller tasks off your plate so you can focus on what you do best.
