Training needs are tied to Organization Performance Objectives
Training development follows similar set of processes or activities as product development. First and foremost we must know what we are trying to achieve. What is our scope? What is our ultimate objective? Those same steps we use to evoke the requirements or our product targets for our training requirements. The objectives of our training must be stated clearly and measurably, just like product requirements. Without this clear articulation, how do you know you have met the objective instead of wasting time? The objective must be time bound – otherwise, the activity can languish on in perpetuity – neither succeeding nor failing nor delivering the expected performance. We must constantly monitor the progress of key metrics that inform us as to the state of the work (the feedback loop of our control system).
