Why are you Training?

February 13, 2013 in At Work, Skills Development

One of the most important questions to ask yourself when training is WHY are you training?

Is it to improve productivity in the workplace? To help an employee adjust to a new position? For BEE points? For an employee working towards a qualification?

Knowing exactly why you are training is the best way of ensuring that you get the most out of the training.

Getting maximum benefit from any training workshop depends on how prepared and committed you (the training organiser) are to ensuring its effectiveness. Defining the specific outcomes you intend to be met at the training, collaborating with the training provider before the training and keeping track of the delegate’s progress after the training are all important aspects of the training process.

While the knowledge transferred during training is highly effective initially, treating the training process as an ongoing project with deadlines, clearly defined goals and a measurement system is the best way of ensuring that that knowledge gets implemented on a more permanent basis, which is the first step in effective behaviour change.
