Topic: Organizational Effectiveness through Training & Competency

Organizational effectiveness is different for different organizations. Effectiveness of an organization depends on the effectiveness of its teams, of the people within the different teams. Training is key for organizational effectiveness when it is focused on the needs of key job functions. We will discuss different modes of training delivery catering to job functions. Competency helps to build talent, focuses on critical areas, and addresses pain points of the organization along with providing assurance of organizational capabilities. We will be discussing various training and competency programs and their role in achieving organizational effectiveness.
