New Hire Advice

Hi All!

I have a situation which I would appreciate some help with.

I am leaving my current role and will need to assess my replacement (this is the first time I've had to do this), both on their program competency and their creative skills which will be done as part of their interview (no beforehand prep, a bit mean but I'm not the hiring manager).

I need to check their competency with the software (we use the dreaded Captivate here - not my choice!). I have no issues with this part of the interview, I've got an old course I've put mistakes into for this.

The part I need help with is the creative part, I'm racking my brain trying to figure out an easy situation for someone to let their creative juices flow.

They will only have 15 minutes to do this, but for the sake of fairness, I want to use the same scenario for each candidate. I've discussed with my Manager and she's agreed that it will just be a storyboard on a sheet of paper and to walk us through it.

The main idea I've had is something simple like I'm setting up a car-washing business and want to create eLearning so that all employees use the same technique and methods to wash the cars.

I'll be writing a brief for them so they have *some* information for this course.

 

Any ideas, or thoughts on this?

Thanks in advance!
