Bus 680 week 1 discussion 2
The similarities in the activities identified for the five phases of the training process model between my initial discussion thread and others include:
1. Analyze Needs – All participants agreed that it is necessary to analyze needs in order to determine what type of training is needed and which objectives should be set.
2. Design Training – All participants discussed how important it is to design a well-constructed program that meets all the needs of the organization or individual being trained.
3. Develop Training Material/Content – Everyone agreed that developing content for training must be done with careful consideration, as it will influence how effective learning outcomes are achieved.
4. Deliver Training – Every participant discussed how critical delivery of training is for successful outcomes, including factors such as timing, environment, instruction style and more.
5. Evaluate Results – Lastly, all participants agreed on the necessity of evaluating results in order to ensure proper implementation and measure success or areas needing improvement within a company’s training initiatives.
The differences in activities identified by each participant include:
1) My initial discussion thread focused on analyzing workplace dynamics before conducting any assessment while other threads placed emphasis on gathering data prior to making decisions about training programs; 2) My discussion proposed focusing on specific job roles rather than creating general courses or curriculums while others suggested methods like surveys or interviews; 3) I also stressed creating tangible goals based on analysis instead of merely identifying topics for development while others advocated mapping out an entire curriculum; 4) I emphasized tailoring course materials closely aligned with organizational culture versus relying solely on generic material found online whereas other threads delved into using technology tools more effectively during delivery; 5) Lastly I highlighted trying different approaches when delivering instruction instead of sticking rigidly to one method whereas others focused more heavily on measuring results after completion by using assessments or feedback forms.
