Topic:   Who doesn’t strive to leverage business advantage by hiring top talent? But top talent often comes with a hefty price tag that not all organizations can afford! So many companies develop talent from within their own ranks. This can create sustainable advantage or burn through lots of training dollars without producing significant results.

Effective training programs require strategic partnerships within the organization as well as a focus on putting in place the key mechanisms that deliver needed competencies on a reasonable timeline. A little planning and up-front effort pays off in the long run. Preventing your training professionals from chasing clients with courses and materials that don’t meet the needs of operations personnel hustling to serve a dynamic and competitive market.

Learn how to create an effective training program without breaking the budget!

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the key elements of an effective training program and explain the interconnections.
  • Name the logical strategic partners and explain the essence of the necessary collaboration with each.
  • Describe the means for keeping training content and delivery in sync with client needs.
