Q. How much does Making It Happen cost?
A. The whole course costs $67 (USD). This includes the lessons, the downloads and the 'sprint' projects.
Q. How does the weekly version of 'Making It Happen' work?
A. Once you register your details you will get instant access to lesson 1. Thereafter you will get an email each week with a link to the next lesson. As a bonus I have included a follow up 'booster' for each lesson, to help you make the most of the material.
Q. How does the immediate access version of 'Making It Happen' work?
A. When you complete the payment for the course you will be provided with a download link to all of the course lessons and worksheets. You can then choose to tackle your business' continuous improvement needs in the way that suits you best. You can follow the sequence of lessons, or start with a sprint, whatever feels best suited to your needs right now.
Q. What are the downloads that are referred to?
A. Many of the lessons include a simple spreadsheet tool, or a worksheet, to help you put the ideas into practice more easily. These types of documents are the downloads.
Q. How does the 60 day guarantee work?
A. If you decide within 60 days that you don't think this course is for you just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll arrange your full refund.
Q. Why isn't 'Making It Happen' a book?
A. Actually, Making It Happen did start out as my next book. I wrote the first draft of the book and realised that it would work far better if I could include all of the worksheets and examples as downloads. Having experienced doing this as a link from a book in the past, I decided that I wanted to look for another option to host the material, an online course like this was the obvious choice.
Q. Can you access the course on different devices?
A. Yes. Making It Happen works great on tablets and smartphones, as well as on a normal computer.
Q. Is there a chance the email notifications get lost in my SPAM folder (for the weekly version)?
A. This has happened before. When you join the course, before you jump into lesson 1, I advise you to add 'email@example.com' to help avoid this problem.
Q. Why do you offer a weekly 'drip fed' version?
A. The other issue I had with compiling all of this content as my next book was the risk of people not getting the most out of it. When I run training courses with my clients one of the most valuable elements is the gap between the sessions. Between the sessions my clients can try out the ideas and continue their learning by being hands on with the material. When you cram too much information into a too short period of time the ability to test and trial the ideas gets lost. By nature I am an impatient person (probably from being a Production Manager in a past life!), but the lessons will come quickly enough (especially when you consider your normal day to day activities) and you'll be able to use the material to maximum effect.
