Training modules will be structured in a sequential fashion that aligns with the Manual. –Instructional modules will follow the framework of introduction & explanation, demonstration, and reproduction. –Introduction & explanation activities will include descriptions of material content and endeavor to answer all of the why questions. Extra time should be budgeted in these sections for varying levels of questions. –Demonstration activities will include the live performance of correct physical and verbal actions by an experienced barista or specialized trainer. The barista or trainer should emphasize friendly service, accuracy and timeliness in their demonstrations. –Reproduction activities will include performance of physical and verbal actions by the trainees. –Café Managers, or close equivalent, will lead summative discussions following each training module.

Corporate & Managerial Involvement Each module will be opened by words from the company CEO and closed by the thoughts of individual café managers. Any training or instructional program within the corporate setting is only ever as strong as the emphasis placed upon it by those in critical positions of leadership. At a company such as Starbucks, customer service and product delivery are everything! New barista trainees will be made aware and consistently reminded of this throughout the instruction, building up their own personal motivation. Learning Methodology Talk about it, show them how its done, and then set them free to do it on their own. This is a classic learning methodology that is prevalent among task oriented jobs, such as filling the role of barista at Starbucks. This method allows the trainees to comprehend, verbally and visually, the task completed perfectly and then provides them opportunities to reproduce the tasks to the same level. Practice is the key to any task oriented job. The modules will seek to creatively challenge trainees to perform specific tasks perfectly each and every time during their reproduction sessions. This creative practice will make the learning more enjoyable while also providing strong cognitive anchors and context that the trainees can easily refer back to. Structure Rationale
Sequential Instruction There is merit to learning in the same fashion and order in which tasks are naturally performed. Our trainees will learn individual tasks and responsibilities in both the order they are likely to be performed on the job and in terms of strategic importance. Further, each module will create a framework from which the next module can be built on. In a sales culture, first impressions are paramount. As such, our first module will involve customer relations and order taking. By teaching this module first, it can be continuously trained on in subsequent modules without much need for review. Our second module is essentially the creation of our products. This will be what a barista completes after taking an order, and is also the reason the customer is visiting the café. The baristas success or failure with this step is likely to have a significant influence in The customers decision to return to the café in the future. Building upon correct production of a product, in the third module we focus on the timeliness of that products delivery to the customer. Timeliness should be a concern for each barista in product creation, secondary only to accuracy and presentation; it will set each Starbucks apart from its competitors. Our final module involves maintaining the appropriate café environment. Baristas will focus on this when not engaged in order taking or product production. By maintaining a unique Starbucks decorum, customers will be compelled to spend their time in the café and potentially order additional products.
Learning Environment The training environment will mirror that of the Starbucks café and corporation. The sessions should be relaxed and friendly, but also motivating and perfection seeking. They will be lead and completed in whole by Starbucks employees to ensure the best possible product quality is translated to the trainees. Training will be conducted on location at a café during non- business hours to facilitate procedural and contextual content accuracy. By conducting this initial training away from the presence of customers, trainers will be able to focus solely on the trainees without distraction.
Media Selection Delivery of training will be kept as simple as possible to maximize attention to content. Cafés will use their wireless internet and internal computers and speakers for delivery of CEO videos that will open each training module. Each trainee will be provided with an electronic or hard copy Starbucks Barista Customer Service Manual that will be their one stop reference for each and every task to be expected of them. Using the functionalities and unique atmosphere of the café, trainers will lead the modules in the most realistic and hands-on ways possible. Cafés may be altered to create a clustered classroom setting by moving chairs and tables during introductory training. Demonstration and Reproduction activities should be more akin to lab-like settings whereby trainees view and participate in hands-on activities. During reproduction phases, trainers should facilitate role-play, accuracy games and speed drills to make the training more meaningful and enjoyable. Offering prizes of Starbucks products for exceptional performance by individual trainees is authorized and should be considered to creative behavioral incentives and brand loyalty.
Starbucks Prompt Service Program Objectives: –Given all the recipes for drinks on the Starbucks menu, baristas will prepare the requested beverage(s) for the customer with 100% accuracy. –Using the clock located behind the barista service station, baristas will produce the requested beverage(s) in no more than (x) minutes upon ordering.
Preparation Required Physical environment: –A Starbucks location would be an ideal site for the lesson, more specifically the drink preparation site. –This allows the new employee to explore the actual environment and equipment that they will be working with.
Preparation Required Instructor: –The ideal instructor is a manager who has had experience working as a barista. –This individual should also be educated on how to train newly hired employees, i.e. Training Manager.
Preparation Required Trainees: –The trainees will be newly hired Baristas. –To make better use of time, a group of about 6 new hires should be trained at once. The following slides show an example lesson from the Starbucks Barista training:
