Training a Strategic Activity!
Training is often undertaken by an organization as a strategic activity aimed at improving the performance of the business by improving the performance of its employees.
Business should have a clearly defined strategy and set of objectives that direct and drive all the decisions made especially for training decisions. Firms that plan their training process are more successful than those that do not. Most business owners want to succeed, but do not engage in training design that promise to improve their chances of success.
A well-conceived training program can help business succeed. A program structured with the company's strategy and objectives in mind has a high probability of improving productivity and other goals that are set in the training mission.
The operational model:
- Understanding the need
- Mapping out the solution
- Producing the solution
- Delivering and implementing the solution
- Ensuring quality during Development and After Delivery
The goals of the training program should relate directly to the needs determined by the assessment process outlined above. Course objectives should clearly state what behavior or skill will be changed as a result of the training and should relate to the mission and strategic plan of the company. Goals should include milestones to help take the employee from where he or she is today to where the firm wants him or her in the future. Setting goals, helps to evaluate the training program and also to motivate employees. Allowing employees to participate in setting goals increases the probability of success.
Training can no longer be an afterthought. It must become an integral part of staffing and business strategy. When it is not properly planned for, any attempt to satisfy a training need will usually result in failure. Therefore, it is necessary to create a written, well-thought out plan for training.
Actually, planning the training should be an essential part of the performance management system and career planning for the employees.
