to accompany the instructional guide


Seminar goals
Seminar Goals

At the conclusion of this seminar, participants will be able to

  • identify training opportunities

  • apply the components of a training cycle to develop a training program

  • complete a front-end analysis, including a task analysis

  • construct training objectives

  • classify training objectives according to levels of learning

  • identify training opportunities

  • select appropriate training methods and materials

  • differentiate between knowledge and skill tasks

  • develop and apply a training curriculum

  • evaluate training

  • conduct effective training sessions.


Training opportunities
Training Opportunities

  • New employees

  • Employee promotion/new position

  • New procedures

  • New equipment

  • New products

  • New services

  • New policies, regulations, and laws

  • Performance improvement

  • Reduction of negative behavior

  • Safety



Eight elements for analysis
Eight Elements for Analysis

Needs

Problems

Goals

Population

  • Resources

  • Constraints

  • Job Analysis

  • Task Analysis


Needs analysis
Needs Analysis

Skills/Knowledge Needed

The Training

Gap

Skills/Knowledge Known


Problem analysis
Problem Analysis

What’s causing the problem?

Once the problem is understood, you can determine…

The solution may not be training.


Activity
Activity

  • Sales at the Shoddy Shoe Store have decreased by 20% since last year. What are some possible reasons?

  • For each potential reason, will training help?


Goal analysis
Goal Analysis

  • The objective is to identify the important goals of all people who have a legitimate interest in the training program's outcomes.

  • An example of a training goal:

    This training program will provide participants with an opportunity to learn specific customer-service skills, in person and over the telephone, that will build customer confidence and enhance customer loyalty.


Population person analysis
Population (Person) Analysis

Describes the characteristics of people who should participate in the training program.

What are we trying to do with the population description?


Resource analysis
Resource Analysis

identifies what resources will be available and useful to program developers and instructors/ facilitators.


Constraints analysis
Constraints Analysis

A developer needs to know

the constraints on developing and presenting a training program

the available resources.

Typical constraints include

budget

time

space.


Job analysis
Job Analysis

  • Before people can be trained for a new job, someone must identify the duties and responsibilities included in the job.

A job analysis breaks down job responsibilities.


Job analysis cashier
Job Analysis—Cashier

Job analysis data will help a trainer determine the objectives and goals for a training course. This is the starting point in curriculum development.

  • Interacts with customers

  • Handles transactions/ purchases

  • Keeps inventory

  • Records information for delivery of purchases


Task analysis
Task Analysis

  • Breaking down the general job duties and responsibilities intoindividual tasks

  • Breaking down each task into steps

This is critical because these “steps” are the content for the instruction you will plan.

Design
Design

Write the objectives from the task analysis.

Design (not write) the test items for each objective.

Segment and sequence the instruction.

Plan the instructional strategies.


Performance objectives
Performance Objectives

  • Tasks—What is the employee expected to know or do at the conclusion of the training?

  • Conditions—Under what conditions are learners expected to perform?

  • Standards—How will the learner’s performance be measured, and what is the minimal acceptable standard?


Performance objectives1
Performance Objectives

Example: If the task from the task list is complete a contract, then the training objective might be:

“Given a standard xyz sales contract and customer information, complete a contract with fewer than three errors.”

Implementation
Implementation

Learners arrive, the course is taught, and participants' learning is evaluated.

Information is collected. What types of information are collected?


Evaluation
Evaluation

Analyze trainees’/students’ performance during the course.

Analyze the completers’ performance after the course.

Analyze how the course ran.

Check the workplace to see how it has changed.


Evaluation1
Evaluation

  • Internal evaluation is based on the evaluation when the course is taking place. Student and instructor feedback, as well as test performance, help the trainer to understand if the students are learning the material and if they are learning what they should be learning.

  • External evaluation takes place once the course has ended. It helps the trainer assess the effectiveness of the training. Did production or sales go up? Did the number of accidents or complaints go down? This helps to determine if the training made a difference.
