Training based on behavior modeling has long been accepted as an effective methodology for developing skills and changing behavior. However, given the myriad changes in the work environment, there is a need to introduce modifications to behavior-modeling-based training. For the content overview phase, trainers must ensure that the learning design provides different ways to retain learners' attention and satisfies differing needs for depth of content. Also, the presentation of positive model videos must be done in a new context and play a greater role in building skill. Finally, in the skill practice, feedback and application, trainers must offer participants with more opportunities for self-diagnosis and self-directed learning. These changes make training based on behavior modeling still relevant 20 years after it was first introduced.
