Effective Training Programs Have Strategic Focus: Psychologist

Effective Professional development strategic programs produce organisational benefits including the ability to “adapt, compete, excel, innovate, produce, be safe, improve service and reach goals” according to a new report in Psychological Science in the Public Interest. Yet despite the enormous sums invested in training—around $135 billion annually in the USA alone—training is approached in an ad-hoc manner with scant attention paid to transferring what’s learned into business improvements. The authors suggest a range of actions to address this including the analysis of roles and skill sets; motivating trainees to learn; providing structure and guidance; and providing a structure that encourages the application of new skills into the workplace.
