An old phrase which rings eternally true is “If you think education and training is expensive, try ignorance.” Too many executives are overly concerned about spending money on training, and whether or not it will yield a payback. The more important question is “How do you structure a training program to assure value is added to the organization’s goals?” Someone once questioned the value of training with a question, “What if we train them and they leave?” The reply was classic, “What if we don’t, and they stay?” In this session, along with special guest Tara Holwegner, we’ll review:
The 12 steps for developing a strategic training plan, one designed to assure an effective, value-adding, training and development program.
Training vs. learning, the learning process and the approach most effective, adult learning and Bloom’s taxonomy.
Data regarding how people learn, and remember, and how practices become a habit.
