This document is part of a five-module training package to help employment and training service providers comply with the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998 and develop a one-stop training and employment services system. It consists of the participant workbook, trainer manual, and activity worksheets for a module on designing a system for the delivery of integrated services. The training manual presents a detailed lesson plan that includes step-by-step instructions for using the following tools and techniques to deliver the module: presenting overhead slides; having participants complete exercises; writing information on flip charts; using small group discussions; and using full group discussion. The workbook activities and worksheets are designed to achieve the following objectives: (1) help participants learn about different partnering models; (2) help participants identify opportunities for collaboration in the delivery of services to help customers find jobs; (3) teach participants six principles for redesigning one-stop services that can be applied to the tasks of reengineering customer flow, service delivery roles, and services offered to meet identified customer requirements; and (4) help participants learn to apply various tools (including brainstorming, consensus building, affinity diagrams, process mapping with process task spreadsheets and flow charting, and mind mapping) to service functions.
