This session outlines how the training managers role has evolved to one of consultant with strong emphasis on learning and development as an integral part of the business. It also highlights the need for a strong personal profile and the ability to market the training function. 1100 Break 1115 Aligning training strategy and business needs Understanding the needs of the business and formulating a plan to meet those needs at organisational, occupational and individual level can only be done when you accurately know what has to be achieved. How it can be achieved, the resources available, the timeframe to be met and the cost implications are the next questions on the agenda. In other words - a through fact finding mission! 1245 Lunch 1330 Managing the provision of training and development interventions Deciding whether to use internal or external training providers is often dictated by the volume of training required, knowledge and experience of the subject area internally and the necessity to deliver training to a set timeframe. Key considerations here include Do you have best practice guidelines for trainers? Do you have a preferred external training company supplier list? and how do you monitor their performance? 1500 Break 1515 Measuring training effectiveness and expenditure What measures will be used - short, medium and long term to evaluate the effectiveness of training intervention?, bearing in mind that this has often been the part of the training cycle that is poorly done and lets training professionals down. How does this compare with expenditure? More importantly, how will you successfully communicate this within your organisation? 1630 Wrap up and close What a thought-provoking course.
