Blackblot Training Delivery Format
When it comes to delivering training programs, there is no real way of knowing which delivery format is intrinsically better. However, a delivery format is chosen depending on the audience, venue and content. The objective in selecting a delivery format is to promote content understanding and retention, and make the overall training experience as positive and as meaningful as possible.
The classroom delivery format is considered most effective when teaching to a small group of students. The workshop delivery format is appropriate when applying what has been taught to a small group of students. The lecture delivery format is suitable when disseminating information to a large group of students.
Used throughout Blackblot’s training program, the classroom delivery format is employed as the best format for delivering complex and diverse content, such as topics in product management, to a small group of participants.

Delivery Format Definitions
- Classroom – discourse given before an audience, with multiple instances of audience interaction or involvement in the form of discussions, exercises and drills. (The classroom delivery format is based on intensive and highly interactive sessions which are forty five minutes to one hour in duration).
- Workshop – guided hands-on training that is meant to develop skills via doing and experiencing. (A true workshop rarely involves topic presentation. During a workshop, more time is allocated to exercises and less time for instructor-led dissertations.)
- Lecture – discourse given before an audience, with little or no audience interaction or involvement. (One is either barred from or encouraged not to ask questions during the lecture, or allowed to ask questions after the lecturer has concluded the lecture.)
