Training & Development Course Project

The Course Project must be comprehensive and follow the analytical stages below.

Select an organization to be studied. Develop and conduct a needs assessment. Analyze the data collected and identify training needs. Develop a training or intervention strategy to address the needs. Determine the training intervention cost and quantify expected results. Develop an evaluation method. Once the steps have been completed, a detailed paper outlining your processes, methodologies, results, and recommendations should be prepared. Although the length of the paper is not predetermined, a paper of 10–15 pages in length, double-spaced, is customarily necessary to cover the topic adequately. This does not include the title and reference pages.

Part 4: Develop a Training or Intervention Strategy to Address the Needs

Creating a developmental strategy is the objective of the investigative segment of the project. The strategy may include the following.

Training Sessions Traditional classroom Simulations Self-managed strategies Opportunity to perform

Career management systems Self-assessment programs Mentoring systems Action planning

Organizational development intervention activities Team building Intergroup activities Survey feedback activities Education and training activities Structural activities Process consultation Blake-Mouton grid activities Third-party peacemaking Coaching and counseling Career planning Goal setting

System redesign Search conferences Confrontation meetings Strategic planning meetings Part 5: Determine the Training or Intervention Cost and Quantify Expected Results

The fifth section of the Course Project is conducting a cost-benefit analysis. Training costs must be evaluated against anticipated results. This will only be palatable if, in the initial assessment, specific behaviors and processes and their impacts on the performance of the organization were determined. If so, conducting this final analytical segment should be possible.

Part 6: Develop a Method of Training Evaluation

Once you have completed the training, how will you know whether it has been successful? There are a variety of ways to evaluate training and development programs. Clearly identify the specific outcomes you expect from the project. Then develop a method of evaluating the effectiveness of your project.
