Training: The Value of Assessments

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

Although I do know of at least one training company that offers assessments and feedback after the class, I am deducing that conducting assessments is not the norm. have read a couple of articles--and one book--saying that we will need to start proving that our training is effective by providing after-the-class assessment. Training on Trial , by Jim D. To begin to tap into these additional levels of assessment, we have to go back to the books and clearly define the goals of the training, and then assess whether measurable results have occurred. training

Well there was a lot of interest from my network surrounding the press release from the Institute of IT Training (IITT) earlier this month. The press release stated that on the 14th September the IITT would complete a planned name change to become the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI).

Training for No Results

The Peformance Improvement

Why do companies continue to deliver corporate-wide employee training in a way that ensures minimal results?

Mindflash

Annual performance reviews should be buried without a eulogy. Here are my three reasons why employee performance reviews are a farce: 1.
