Is training a waste of time? Some individuals believe so. Often, when training needs are not effectively assessed, worthwhile programs cannot be implemented. Importantly, there does not seem to be as much effort related to analyzing the effectiveness of a training program – once the training is completed, organizations tends to move onto the next issue.
Think of a time, in the past, in which you attended an ineffective training course or program. Explain the following:
- What was the stated purpose of this training, and in particular what were the specific outcomes expected of the training?
- How would you reformulate or restructure the training to make it more effective? In particular, what changes in the program format would you propose to raise its effectiveness?
- Finally, when and how would you assess the validity and effectiveness of this training? What specific questions or processes would you follow?
Your paper should be 3-4 pages in length, not including the title or references pages, with support from 3-4 scholarly sources. The CSU-Global library is a good place to find these sources. Be sure your paper conforms to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA.
