real training must be transformational in nature that brings
about enhancement of skills or changes of behavior.
irrespective of whether the training is aimed at improving
performances, involving the use of physical capabilities,
verbal skills, intellectuals skills, or attitudinal changes,
the old maxim ‘knowing is doing’ holds very
true. The only true evidence of effective training comes
in the form of changes in the trainees performance (output)
and behavior (attitude), the key principle remains the same,
that skills or behavior changes, has to be absorbed in small
doses. Practiced repeated, shared with others, thus internalised
and finally forms a part of a persons self transformation.
to Fred Kofman & Peter Senge "In our organizations
today learning is too important to leave to chance. I will
not be adequate to offer training and hope that people will
be able to apply new insights and methods.”
Indian business environment until recently only lip service
had been paid to training. Due to a protected business environment
a need for real training was not felt. The ‘personnel
administration’ & ‘training functions’
in most organizations were indistinguishable from each other
since the only role of the concerned professional was to
have a training ‘calendar’ to send people for
certain ‘training days,’ and use up the allotted
attitude needs a paradigm shift in order for the Indian
corporate world to keep pace with the dynamic global scenario
to meet the new issues and challenges and hence fulfills
the need to impart meaningful training.
