Avoiding Training Malpractice: Right Diagnosis, Right Solution Workshop

Workshop Overview
It is commonly held that 80% of the training programs conducted in Corporate and Organizational America are done for the wrong reasons. Many companies view training as a "cure-all" for any and all performance problems. Training is offered as a "band-aid fix" or a placebo while the real performance problems remain undiagnosed and untreated. Conducting an effective Training Needs Analysis helps us separate training needs from training wants and keeps us from committing "Training Malpractice." In this 1/2-day workshop you will receive:

  1. A business-proven, systematic process to follow anytime you are trying to determine true training needs and other performance issues

  2. Practical and time-tested job aids to quickly and effectively guide you and your stakeholders through the needs analysis process.
This highly interactive workshop is based on the ASTD Competency Model and includes the latest research along with business-proven methods. You will receive a wealth of practical techniques that you can immediately apply on the job. You will also receive electronic files of all the job aids (checklists, decision tools, and templates) from the workshop material.

Business Outcomes
By applying the business-proven processes in this workshop, you will:

  • Eliminate ineffective and irrelevant training programs by identifying true organizational training needs.

  • Accurately forecast future training needs months in advance so new programs are launched just-in-time and aligned to business and strategic goals.

  • Assess all existing training curriculum to determine if the need for continued offering still exists.

  • Eliminate the "launch 'em and leave 'em approach" to training programs by implementing a transfer-of-training mindset beginning with the front-end needs analysis.

  • Implement a "common practice based upon best practice" for assessing training needs in your organization.
