Staff Development And Training
Staff development and training has long been something of a catch 22 situation, but when addressed and implemented successfully, staff development and training can represent something of a Holy Grail of business development, with immediate impact and benefits in many business areas.
The challenges start with the identification of staff development and training – the Training Needs Analysis or TNA. This is covered in more detail elsewhere and assuming that TNA is understood, the next stage is to find a way to efficiently – and sometimes with some urgency, implement some effective staff development and training.
The ‘industry’ is full of suggestions, questions and ideas as to how best implement staff development and training – take a look at these teasers for example –
- What Exactly Is A Staff Training Programme?
- Why Run A Staff Development And Training Programme?
- When Should You Run A Staff Training Programme?
- Who Should Be In Charge Of The Staff Training Programme?
- Ho To Actually Plan And Run Staff Training and Development Programmes?
Whilst most of these may well be relevant, sometimes the answers are not as challenging to find as may initially appear. Taking a holistic view can often reveal the wood from the myriad of trees. Ask yourself, what has your TNA revealed, and what are you then aiming to achieve. Consider material – bough in or developed in house? Staff resources and time management – who will you allocate to develop and deliver the staff training and development program? How will you then measure the return on staff time invested – both the deliverers, assessors and trainees.
If you are sensing more questions than answers then relax.
