The Truth About Training

     Training has evolved to include an emphasis on learning, creating and sharing knowledge to assist your organization with accomplishing its' strategy and goals (Noe, 2010).  Learning becomes efficient when it helps employee's performance improve and the company achieve its' business goals (Noe, 2010).  This ensures your employees are motivated to learn and your time and money are directly focused on your business success (Noe, 2010).

Strategies to link training and development to your business goals.
     There are three areas in which training can help you do this.

     First, the psychological aspects of how your employee's learn are addressed through adult learning theory and their tacit knowledge is utilized.

     Secondly, training can assist with strategic training and development initiatives.

    Third, we can perform analysis to align training with your business strategy by identifying metrics to show training success and help you identify and utilize the effective learning of your managers (Noe, 2010).

     The great thing about this is your participation in every phase is vital.  You are the wind beneath the wings of learning in your organization.  I provide the scenery along your way.
