An Effective Training Evaluation Plan
You have just learned that your company is looking for ways to cut back expenses. One of the cost cutting measures being considered is to terminate the training department, as the company considers this an expense and they do not believe training is contributing to the profitability of the company. As the head of the training department, it is your job to defend the value of the department. You realize that well trained employees perform their jobs more efficiently and consequently can contribute to higher productivity and profits for the company. One way to show the value of training is to have tools that will allow a manager to track the performance of an employee both before and after they have received training. o Increasing the level of transfer of knowledge (knowledge retention) o Monitoring the effectiveness of the skill performance in the job performance improvement o Include common attributes in your evaluation tool, which could be applicable to most employees at the organization such as employees showing concern for saving the company money or consistently turning in error free work. Your training tool should contain a minimum of 10 evaluation criteria. The report should be 5-7 pages in length and include: • Executive Summary highlighting all the factors in the scenario. • Justification of the importance of retaining the training department in the company and explanation of how the training department is important to the overall success of the company. • Training Evaluation Tool to evaluate knowledge retention and job performance improvement (10 criteria minimum). • Explanation of how the evaluation tool will be implemented. • Describe how the evaluation tool will help evaluate the level of transfer of knowledge and skill performance for current training…...

...divide users into groups with apparently common information needs, without recognising that a group contains individual users with different information needs. We return to this later in the chapter, but for the moment we continue by studying a situation where the directors of a company are considering a proposed capital investment project. Let us assume that there are three companies in the retail industry: Retail A Ltd, Retail B Ltd and Retail C Ltd. The directors of each company are considering the purchase of a warehouse. We could assume initially that, because the companies are operating in the same industry and are faced with the same investment decision, they have identical information needs. However, enquiry might establish that the directors of each company have a completely different attitude to, or perception of, the primary business objective. For example, it might be established that Retail A Ltd is a large company and under the Fisher/Hirshleifer separation theory the directors seek to maximise profits for the benefit of the equity investors; Retail B Ltd is a medium-sized company in which the directors seek to obtain a satisfactory return for the equity shareholders; and Retail C Ltd is a smaller company in which the directors seek to achieve a satisfactory return for a wider range of stakeholders, including, perhaps, the employees as well as the equity shareholders. The accountant needs to be aware that these differences may have a significant effect on the......

...Mr. Dewy Good, As per my contract to provide an implementation safety program for your company, the following paper has been prepared to illustrate, in detail, the steps that I have determined to be necessary to develop a progressive health and safety management system. Geared to your knowledge and interest in the “Alberta Partnership Program”, I will provide specific guidance on what needs to be done, and in what order. Here are the key issues that need to be addresses; • Company Health and Safety Statement • Company Responsibility and Obligations • Hazard Identification and Task Analysis • Workplace Inspections • Worker Training and Competency Training • Incident/Near Miss Reporting • PPE • Incentive Program The first order of business is to establish a written mission statement acknowledging your commitment to health and safety. A mission statement is crucial in order to create and maintain a safety culture within the company. Commitment to and enforcement of safety standards by managers at all levels is essential in making health and safety part of our day-to-day business practice. Without a large emphasis on this commitment, health and safety activities are usually incomplete, inadequate, or ill-performed. To ensure the quality of our company’s safety policies, our health and safety program is a cooperative effort among management, and employees. Be advised this mission statement is for your approval, and can be amended if need be. MISSION STATEMENT: XYZ......

Communication is used for giving information, obtaining information and exchanging ideas between two or more individuals. To make communication effective you must do more than simply pass on the information, it means involving and engaging the other person or people. An example of effective communication in relation to health and social care would be in a counselling session. A support worker would say ‘Marcus, what would like to achieve from this session today?’ The individual who is using the service listens to the care worker and responds in the appropriate way. For example, ‘I would like to learn some alternatives of coping with my addiction.’ Effective communication must be clear, accurate and legible. Without these 3 rules information would deem inaccurate. Inaccuracies could result in......

...this type of project then there may be additional costs associated with schedule overruns and additional resources. • Lack of resources This is a very high impact risk. If Geneva fails to assign necessary resources to the project then project failure may be eminent. • Scheduling conflicts The current schedule shows that 160 days (Jeffrey, 2007, p.19) are needed for system testing. From the perspective of a project start time in May, the schedule shows that testing must begin immediately; even before the design phase is complete. The schedule also allocates 127 days for project management, which infers that the two functions run back to back as opposed to concurrently. This scheduling conflict, if not mitigated, will cause the project to miss the target requirement of opening the Internet store before Christmas....

...Living through the war Dear diary, October 19, 1940 After 20 steps I had to stop. My breath became short, my heart pounded and my legs gave way. A shower of bombs hit the side of my house. The force of the blast threw me to the ground! There are streets being bombed right this minute; I’m scared. Mama and Papa told me that everything is going to be ok, but I’m still scared. They said that I have to be evacuated out of London soon; I have to go somewhere far away. I will miss them dearly and I’m sure they will miss me too. I’m only 13 but my mama can’t come with me, she said that Churchill our prime minister made up the rules. I have mixed thoughts about being evacuated; I am worried about the type of people I am going to stay with and whether they will care for me or not, however, I love the countryside as it is very peaceful and quiet unlike the streets of London!! I’m going to bed now, speak soon. Mary. Dear diary, November 1, 1940 From late last night until early this morning, I witnessed some indescribable events. Armed soldiers and police paraded the streets looking for Jews. Jews were taken from their houses and other peoples attics where they hid. All I could hear throughout the night were gunshots. Between 200-300 Jews have been killed already. If they weren’t killed, they were taken away as prisoners. Mama told me that they were being taken to concentration camps where they would work themselves to death. It was definitely not tranquil! The sky is always......

...Measles is a viral infection that is very contagious. Indarjit’s could have caught measles by being in contact with infected mucus or saliva. Measles is an airborne virus, if an infected person sneezes or coughs; they release the virus into the air. The virus can live on surfaces for several hours, so Indarjit could have also caught measles by touching an infected surface. Indarjit is susceptible to the infection because his mother decided not to give Indarjit the MMR vaccination. This is because of the link between the vaccination and autism. The reservoir for the infection is Indarjit’s body because it stores the infection. Measles is a transient flora because it only lives in the body and on a surface for a short period of time. Miss Alessandria Lopez has visited her GP complaining of itching and discomfort around her genital area. She has also noticed a whitish grey discharge. Alessandria’s infection is localised because the infection is only on one part of the body. Thrush is a yeast infection that is caused by a type of fungus that lives naturally around the vagina. Thrush can be developed through sexual contact with another human being. Wearing tight-fitting clothing and not washing your genital area properly may also increase your risk of developing thrush. It can also occur when taking certain contraceptives or antibiotics because antibiotics can get rid of friendly bacteria. The genital area is a good environment for fungal growth because it is warm......

...couldn’t be truer when it comes to communication: The first two seconds of communication are so important that it takes another four minutes to add 50 percent more information to an impression—positive or negative—within that communication.[1] Communication has often been referred to as a soft skillA term that relates to a person’s communication skills, social graces, personality traits, language abilities, and the ability to work with others., which includes other competencies such as social graces, personality traits, language abilities, and ability to work with other people. Soft skills also encompass emotional intelligenceA person’s ability to manage herself as well as her relationship with others so she can live her intentions., which Adele B. Lynn, in her book The EQ Interview: Finding Employees with High Emotional Intelligence, defines as “a person’s ability to manage herself as well as her relationship with others so she can live her intentions.”[2] But in today’s business world, communication has become part of the new “hard skillsTechnical knowledge required to perform a specific job.” category, a technical job requirement, because of the critical role that it plays in business.[3] According to Peter Post, great-grandson of the late Emily Post, “Your skills can get you in the door; your people skills are what can seal the deal.”[4] Misunderstood = Miscommunicated In Chapter 3 "The Power of Building Relationships: Putting Adaptive Selling to Work" you learned about......
