TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT


TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT is a subsystem of an organization. It ensures that
randomness is reduced and learning or behavioral change takes place in structured format.
TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT DEFINED
It is concerned with the structure and delivery of acquisition of knowledge to improve the
efficiency and effectiveness of organization. It is concerned with improving the existing
skills and exploring the potential skills of the individual i.e. upgrading the employees
skills and extending their knowledge. Therefore, training is a key to optimizing
utilization human intellectual technological and entrepreneurial skills.
Training and Development referred to as:
Acquisition and sharpening of employees capabilities that is required to perform various
obligations, tasks and functions.
Developing the employees capabilities so that they may be able to discover their
potential and exploit them to full their own and organizational development purpose.
Developing an organizational culture where superior-subordinate relationship, team
work, and collaboration among different sub units are strong and contribute to
organizational wealth, dynamism and pride to the employees.

TRADITIONAL AND MODERN APPROACH OF TRAINING AND DEVLOPMENT


Traditional Approach Most of the organizations before never used to believe in training. They
were holding the traditional view that managers are born and not made. There were also some
views that training is a very costly affair and not worth. Organizations used to believe more in
executive pinching. But now the scenario seems to be changing.

The Modern approach of training and development is that Indian Organizations have realized
the importance of corporate training. Training is now considered as more of retention tool than a
cost. The training system in Indian Industry has been changed to create a smarter workforce and
yield the best results

INPUTS IN TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT


Any training and development programme must contain inputs which enable the
participants to gain skills, learn theoretical concepts and help acquire vision to look into
the distant future.
Skills: Training is imparting skills to employees. A worker needs skills to operate
machines, and use other equipments with least damage and scrap. This is a basic skill
without which the operator will not be able to function. Employees, particularly
supervisors and executives, need interpersonal skills.
Education: The purpose of education is to teach theoretical concepts and develop a
sense of reasoning and judgment.
Development: It is less skill-oriented but stresses on knowledge. Knowledge about
business environment, management principles and techniques, human relations, specific
industry analysis is useful for better management of a company.
Ethics: There is need for imparting greater ethical orientation to a training and
development programme . Ethical attitude help managements make better decisions
which are in the interests of the public, the employees and in the long term-the company
itself.
Attitudinal Changes: Attitude represents feelings and beliefs of individuals towards
others. Attitude affects motivation, satisfaction and job commitment. Negative attitude
need to be converting into positive attitude. Attitude must be changed so that employees
feel committed to the organization, are motivated for better performance, and derive
satisfaction from their jobs and the work environment.
Decision making and problem solving skills: It focus on methods and techniques
for making organization decision-making and solving work related problems.

IMPORTANCE OF TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT


Optimum Utilization of Human Resources Training and Development helps in optimizing
the utilization of human resource that further helps the employee to achieve the organizational
goals as well as their individual goals.
Development of Human Resources Training and Development helps to provide an
opportunity and broad structure for the development of human resources technical and
behavioral skills in an organization. It also helps the employees in attaining personal growth.
Development of skills of employees Training and Development helps in increasing the job
knowledge and skills of employees at each level. It helps to expand the horizons of human
intellect

and

an

overall

personality

of

the

employees.

employees that helps the organization further to achieve its long-term goal.
Team spirit Training and Development helps in inculcating the sense of team work, team
spirit, and inter-team collaborations. It helps in inculcating the zeal to learn within the
employees.
Organization Culture Training and Development helps to develop and improve the
organizational health culture and effectiveness. It helps in creating the learning culture within the
organization.
Organization Climate Training and Development helps building the positive perception and
feeling about the organization. The employees get these feelings from leaders, subordinates, and
peers.
Quality Training and Development helps in improving upon the quality of work and worklife.
Healthy work-environment Training and Development helps in creating the healthy
working environment. It helps to build good employee, relationship so that individual goals
aligns with organizational goal.

organization thus preventing obsolescence.
Morale Training and Development helps in improving the morale of the work force.
Image Training and Development helps in creating a better corporate image.
Profitability Training and Development leads to improved profitability and more positive
attitudes towards profit orientation.
Training and Development aids in organizational development i.e. Organization gets more
effective decision making and problem solving. It helps in understanding and carrying out
organizational policies
Training and Development helps in developing leadership skills, motivation, loyalty, better
attitudes, and other aspects that successful workers and managers usually display.

TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT OBJECTIVES


The principal objective of training and development division is to make sure the availability of a
skilled and willing workforce to an organization. In addition to that, there are four other
objectives: Individual, Organizational, Functional, and Societal.
Individual Objectives help employees in achieving their personal goals, which in turn,
enhances the individual contribution to an organization.
Organizational Objectives assist the organization with its primary objective by bringing
individual effectiveness.
Functional Objectives maintain the departments contribution at a level suitable to the
organizations needs.
Societal Objectives ensure that an organization is ethically and socially responsible to the
needs and challenges of the society

IMPORTANCE OF TRAINING OBJECTIVES


Training objective is one of the most important parts of training program. While some people
think of training objective as a waste of valuable time. The counterargument here is that
resources are always limited and the training objectives actually lead the design of training. It
provides the clear guidelines and develops the training program in less time because objectives
focus specifically on needs. It helps in adhering to a plan. Training objectives tell the trainee that
what is expected out of him at the end of the training program. Training objectives are of great
significance from a number of stakeholder perspectives:
1. Trainer
2. Trainee
3. Designer
4. Evaluator
Trainer The training objective is also beneficial to trainer because it helps the trainer to
measure the progress of trainees and make the required adjustments. Also, trainer comes in a
position to establish a relationship between objectives and particular segments of training.

Trainee The training objective is beneficial to the trainee because it helps in reducing the
anxiety of the trainee up to some extent. Not knowing anything or going to a place which is
unknown creates anxiety that can negatively affect learning. Therefore, it is important to keep the
participants aware of the happenings, rather than keeping it surprise.
Secondly, it helps in increase in concentration, which is the crucial factor to make the training
successful. The objectives create an image of the training program in trainees mind that actually
helps in gaining attention. Thirdly, if the goal is set to be challenging and motivating, then the
likelihood of achieving those goals is much higher than the situation in which no goal is set.
Therefore, training objectives helps in increasing the probability that the participants will be
successful in training.
Designer The training objective is beneficial to the training designer because if the designer is
aware what is to be achieved in the end then hell buy the training package according to that
only. The training designer would then look for the training methods, training equipments, and
training content accordingly to achieve those objectives. Furthermore, planning always helps in
dealing effectively in an unexpected situation. Consider an example; the objective of one training
program is to deal effectively with customers to increase the sales. Since the objective is known,
the designer will design a training program that will include ways to improve the interpersonal
skills, such as verbal and non verbal language, dealing in unexpected situation i.e. when there is
a defect in a product or when a customer is angry.
Therefore, without any guidance, the training may not be designed appropriately.
Evaluator It becomes easy for the training evaluator to measure the progress of the trainees
because the objectives define the expected performance of trainees. Training objective is an
important to tool to judge the performance of participants.
Role of HRD Professionals in Training This is the era of cut-throat competition and with this
changing scenario of business; the role of HR professionals in training has been widened. HR
role now is:
1. Active involvement in employee education

2. Rewards for improvement in performance


3. Rewards to be associated with self esteem and self worth
4. Providing pre-employment market oriented skill development education and post employment
support for advanced education and training
5. Flexible access i.e. anytime, anywhere training

THE TRAINING SYSTEM


A System is a combination of things or parts that must work together to perform a
particular function. An organization is a system and training is a sub system of the organization.
The System Approach views training as a sub system of an organization. System Approach can
be used to examine broad issues like objectives, functions, and aim. It establishes a logical
relationship between the sequential stages in the process of training need analysis (TNA),
formulating, delivering, and evaluating. There are 4 necessary inputs i.e. technology, man,
material, time required in every system to produce products or services. And every system must
have some output from these inputs in order to survive. The output can be tangible or intangible
depending upon the organizations requirement.

MODELS OF TRAINING Training is a sub-system of the organization because the


departments such as, marketing & sales, HR, production, finance, etc depends on training for its
survival. Training is a transforming process that requires some input and in turn it produces
output in the form of knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs).The three model of training are:
1. System Model
2. Instructional System Development Model
3. Transitional model

System Model Training


The system model consists of five phases and should be repeated on a regular basis to make
further improvements. The training should achieve the purpose of helping employee to perform
their work to required standards. The steps involved in System Model of training are as follows:
1. Analyze and identify the training needs i.e. to analyze the department, job, employees
requirement, who needs training, what do they need to learn, estimating training cost, etc The
next step is to develop a performance measure on the basis of which actual performance would
be evaluated.
2. Design and provide training to meet identified needs. This step requires developing objectives
of training, identifying the learning steps, sequencing and structuring the contents.

3. Develop- This phase requires listing the activities in the training program that will assist the
participants to learn, selecting delivery method, examining the training material, validating
information to be imparted to make sure it accomplishes all the goals & objectives.
4. Implementing is the hardest part of the system because one wrong step can lead to the failure
of whole training program.

5. Evaluating each phase so as to make sure it has achieved its aim in terms of subsequent work
performance. Making necessary amendments to any of the previous stage in order to remedy or
improve failure practices.

10

Instructional System Development Model :


Instructional System Development model was made to answer the training problems. This model
is widely used now-a-days in the organization because it is concerned with the training need on
the job performance. Training objectives are defined on the basis of job responsibilities and job
description and on the basis of the defined objectives individual progress is measured. This
model also helps in determining and developing the favorable strategies, sequencing the content,
and delivering media for the types of training objectives to be achieved.
The Instructional System Development model comprises of five stages:
1. ANALYSIS This phase consist of training need assessment, job analysis, and target audience
analysis.
2. PLANNING This phase consist of setting goal of the learning outcome, instructional
objectives that measures behavior of a participant after the training, types of training material,
media selection, methods of evaluating the trainee, trainer and the training program, strategies to

11

impart

knowledge

i.e.

selection

of

content,

sequencing

of

content,

etc.

3. DEVELOPMENT This phase translates design decisions into training material. It consists
of developing course material for the trainer including handouts, workbooks, visual aids,
demonstration props, etc, course material for the trainee including handouts of summary.
4. EXECUTION This phase focuses on logistical arrangements, such as arranging speakers,
equipments, benches, podium, food facilities, cooling, lighting, parking, and other training
accessories.
5. EVALUATION The purpose of this phase is to make sure that the training program has
achieved its aim in terms of subsequent work performance. This phase consists of identifying
strengths and weaknesses and making necessary amendments to any of the previous stage in
order to remedy or improve failure practices.
12

The ISD model is a continuous process that lasts throughout the training program. It also
highlights that feedback is an important phase throughout the entire training program. In this
model, the output of one phase is an input to the next phase.

Transitional Model
Transitional model focuses on the organization as a whole. The outer loop describes the vision,
mission and values of the organization on the basis of which training model i.e. inner loop is
executed.
Vision focuses on the milestones that the organization would like to achieve after the defined
point of time. A vision statement tells that where the organization sees itself few years down the
line. A vision may include setting a role mode, or bringing some internal transformation, or may
be promising to meet some other deadlines.
Mission explain the reason of organizational existence. It identifies the position in the
community. The reason of developing a mission statement is to motivate, inspire, and inform the
employees regarding the organization. The mission statement tells about the identity that how the
organization would like to be viewed by the customers, employees, and all other stakeholders.
Values is the translation of vision and mission into communicable ideals. It reflects the deeply
held values of the organization and is independent of current industry environment. For example,
values may include social responsibility, excellent customer service.

13

The mission, vision, and values precede the objective in the inner loop. This model considers the
organization as a whole. The objective is formulated keeping these three things in mind and then
the training model is further implemented.
METHODS OF TRAINING
There are various methods of training, which can be divided in to cognitive and behavioral
methods. Trainers need to understand the pros and cons of each method, also its impact on
trainees

their

background

and

skills

Cognitive methods

are more of giving theoretical training to the trainees. The various methods under Cognitive
approach provide the rules for how to do something, written or verbal information, demonstrate
relationships among concepts, etc. These methods are associated with changes in knowledge and
attitude by stimulating learning.
The various methods that come under Cognitive approach are:

LECTURES

DEMONSTRATIONS

DISCUSSIONS

COMPUTER BASED TRAINING (CBT)


o

INTELLIGENT TUTORIAL SYSTEM(ITS)

PROGRAMMED INSTRUCTION (PI)

VIRTUAL REALITY

Behavioral methods are more of giving practical training to the trainees. The various methods
under Behavioral approach allow the trainee to behavior in a real fashion. These methods are
best used for skill development.
The various methods that come under Behavioral approach are:

GAMES AND SIMULATIONS


o

BEHAVIOR-MODELING

BUSINESS GAMES

CASE STUDIES

EQUIPMENT STIMULATORS

IN-BASKET TECHNIQUE

15

ROLE PLAYS
Both the methods can be used effectively to change attitudes, but through
different means.

Other training methods

On the Job Training

Off the Job Training

ON THE JOB TRAINING


The most frequently used method in smaller organizations that is on-the-job training. This
method of training uses more knowledgeable, experienced and skilled employees, such as
mangers, supervisors to give training to less knowledgeable, skilled, and experienced employees.
OJT can be delivered in classrooms as well. This type of training often takes place at the work
place in informal manner.
The four techniques for on-the job development are:

COACHING

MENTORING

JOB ROTATION

JOB INSTRUCTION TECHNIQUE (JIT)

Coaching
Coaching is one of the training methods, which is considered as a corrective method for
inadequate performance. According to a survey conducted by International Coach Federation
(ICF), more than 4,000 companies are using coach for their executives. These coaches are
experts most of the time outside consultants.
16

It can be done on phone, meetings, through e-mails, chat


It provides an opportunity to receive feedback from an expert
It helps in identifying weaknesses and focus on the area that needs improvement
This method best suits for the people at the top because if we see on emotional front, when a
person reaches the top, he gets lonely and it becomes difficult to find someone to talk to. It helps
in finding out the executives specific developmental needs. The needs can be identified through
60 degree performance reviews.

Mentoring
Mentoring is an ongoing relationship that is developed between a senior and junior employee.
Mentoring provides guidance and clear understanding of how the organization goes to achieve its
vision and mission to the junior employee.

Mentoring focus on attitude development

Conducted for management-level employees

Mentoring is done by someone inside the company

It is one-to-one interaction

It helps in identifying weaknesses and focus on the area that needs improvement

Job Rotation
For the executive, job rotation takes on different perspectives. The executive is usually not
simply going to another department. In some vertically integrated organizations, for example,
where the supplier is actually part of same organization or subsidiary, job rotation might be to the
supplier to see how the business operates from the supplier point of view. Learning how the
organization is perceived from the outside broadens the executives outlook on the process of the
organization. Or the rotation might be to a foreign office to provide a global perspective.

17

For managers being developed for executive roles, rotation to different functions in the company
is regular carried out.
This approach allows the manger to operate in diverse roles and understand the different issues
that crop up. If someone is to be a corporate leader, they must have this type of training. A recent
study indicated that the single most significant factor that leads to leaders achievement was the
variety of experiences in different departments, business units, cities, and countries.

Job Instruction Technique Job Instruction Technique (JIT) uses a strategy with focus on
knowledge (factual and procedural), skills and attitudes development.
Procedure of Job Instruction Technique (JIT) JIT consists of four steps:
Plan This step includes a written breakdown of the work to be done because the trainer and
the trainee must understand that documentation is must and important for the familiarity of work.
A trainer who is aware of the work well is likely to do many things and in the process might miss
few things. Therefore, a structured analysis and proper documentation ensures that all the points
are covered in the training program. The second step is to find out what the trainee knows and
what training should focus on.
Then, the next step is to create a comfortable atmosphere for the trainees i.e. proper orientation
program, availing the resources, familiarizing trainees with the training program, etc.
Present In this step, trainer provides the synopsis of the job while presenting the
participants the different aspects of the work. When the trainer finished, the trainee demonstrates
how to do the job and why is that done in that specific manner. Trainee actually demonstrates the
procedure

whileemphasizingthekeypointsandsafetyinstructions.

18

Trial This step actually a kind of rehearsal step, in which trainee tries to perform the work
and the trainer is able to provide instant feedback. In this step, the focus is on improving the
method of instruction because a trainer considers that any error if occurring may be a function of
training not the trainee. This step allows the trainee to see the after effects of using an incorrect
method. The trainer then helps the trainee by questioning and guiding to identify the correct
procedure.
Follow-up In this step, the trainer checks the trainees job frequently after the training
program is over to prevent bad work habits from developing.

OFF THE JOB TRAINING


There are many management development techniques that an employee can take in off the job.
The few popular methods are:

SENSITIVITY TRAINING
19

TRANSACTIONAL ANALYSIS

STRAIGHT LECTURES/ LECTURES

SIMULATION EXERCISES

Sensitivity Training
Sensitivity training is about making people understand about themselves and others reasonably,
which is done by developing in them social sensitivity and behavioral flexibility.
Social sensitivity in one word is empathy. It is ability of an individual to sense what others
feel and think from their own point of view.
Behavioral flexibility is ability to behave suitably in light of understanding.

Procedure of Sensitivity Training


Sensitivity Training Program requires three steps:
Unfreezing the old values It requires that the trainees become aware of the inadequacy of the
old values. This can be done when the trainee faces dilemma in which his old values is not able
to provide proper guidance. The first step consists of a small procedure:

20

Procedure of Sensitivity Training

Development of new values With the trainers support, trainees begin to examine their
interpersonal behavior and giving each other feedback. The reasoning of the feedbacks are
discussed which motivates trainees to experiment with range of new behaviors and values. This
process constitutes the second step in the change process of the development of these values.
Refreezing the new ones This step depends upon how much opportunity the trainees get to
practice their new behaviors and values at their work place.

TRANSACTIONAL ANALYSIS Transactional Analysis provides trainees with a realistic and


useful method for analyzing and understanding the behavior of others. In every social
interaction, there is a motivation provided by one person and a reaction to that motivation given
by another person. This motivation-reaction relationship between two persons is a transaction.
Transactional analysis can be done by the ego states of an individual. An ego state is a system of
feelings accompanied by a related set of behaviors. There are basically three ego states:

21

Lectures
It is one of the oldest methods of training. This method is used to create understanding of a topic
or to influence behavior, attitudes through lecture. A lecture can be in printed or oral form.
Lecture is telling someone about something. Lecture is given to enhance the knowledge of
listener or to give him the theoretical aspect of a topic. Training is basically incomplete without
lecture. When the trainer begins the training session by telling the aim, goal, agenda, processes,
or methods that will be used in training that means the trainer is using the lecture method. It is
difficult to imagine training without lecture format. There are some variations in Lecture method.
The variation here means that some forms of lectures are interactive while some are not.

Straight Lecture:
Straight lecture method consists of presenting information, which the trainee attempts to absorb.
In this method, the trainer speaks to a group about a topic. However, it does not involve any kind
of interaction between the trainer and the trainees. A lecture may also take the form of printed
text, such as books, notes, etc. The difference between the straight lecture and the printed
material is the trainers intonation, control of speed, body language, and visual image of the
trainer. The trainer in case of straight lecture can decide to vary from the training script, based on
the signals from the trainees, whereas same material in print is restricted to what is printed.
22

A good lecture consists of introduction of the topic, purpose of the lecture, and priorities and
preferences of the order in which the topic will be covered.

GAMES AND SIMULATIONS


Games and Simulations are structured and sometimes unstructured, that are usually played for
enjoyment sometimes are used for training purposes as an educational tool. Training games and
simulations are different from work as they are designed to reproduce or simulate events,
circumstances,
processes
that
take
place
in
trainees
job.
A Training Game is defined as spirited activity or exercise in which trainees compete with each
other according to the defined set of rules.
Simulation is creating computer versions of real-life games. Simulation is about imitating or
making judgment or opining how events might occur in a real situation.
It can entail intricate numerical modeling, role playing without the support of technology, or
combinations.
Training games and simulations are now seen as an effective tool for training because its key
components are:

Challenge
Rules

Interactivity
These three components are quite essential when it comes to learning.Some of the
examples of this technique are:

Trainees can therefore experience these events, processes, games in a controlled setting
23

where they can develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes or can find out concepts that will
improve their performance.

There are three basic types of inputs;


(i)Skills
(ii)Attitude
iii)Knowledge.
The primary purpose of training is to establishing a sound relationship is at its best when
the workers attitude to the job is right, when the workers knowledge of the job is
adequate, and he has developed the necessary skills. Training activities in an industrial
organization are aimed at making desired modifications in skills, attitudes and knowledge
of employee so that they perform their jobs most efficiently and effectively\

PROCESS OF TRAINING :

24

TRAINING NEEDS ANALYSIS


TRAINING DESIGN- The design of the training program can be undertaken only when a clear
training objective has been produced. The training objective clears what goal has to be achieved
by the end of training program i.e. what the trainees are expected to be able to do at the end of
their training. Training objectives assist trainers to design the training program.
The trainer Before starting a training program, a trainer analyzes his technical, interpersonal,
judgmental

skills

in

order

to

deliver

quality

content

to

trainers.

The trainees A good training design requires close scrutiny of the trainees and their profiles.
Age, experience, needs and expectations of the trainees are some of the important factors that
affect training design.
Training climate A good training climate comprises of ambience, tone, feelings, positive
perception for training program, etc. Therefore, when the climate is favorable nothing goes
wrong

but

when

the

climate

is

unfavorable,

almost

everything

goes

wrong.

Trainees learning style the learning style, age, experience, educational background of
trainees must be kept in mind in order to get the right pitch to the design of the program.
Training strategies Once the training objective has been identified, the trainer translates it into
specific training areas and modules. The trainer prepares the priority list of about what must be
included, what could be included.
Training topics After formulating a strategy, trainer decides upon the content to be delivered.
Trainers break the content into headings, topics, ad modules. These topics and modules are then
classified into information, knowledge, skills, and attitudes.

Sequence the contents Contents are then sequenced in a following manner:

25

From simple to complex


Topics are arranged in terms of their relative importance
From known to unknown
From specific to general
Dependent relationship
Training tactics Once the objectives and the strategy of the training program becomes clear,
trainer comes in the position to select most appropriate tactics or methods or techniques. The
method selection depends on the following factors:
Trainees background
Time allocated
Style preference of trainer
Level of competence of trainer
Availability of facilities and resources, etc

26

TRAINING-DESIGN
Support facilities It can be segregated into printed and audio visual. The various requirements
in a training program are white boards, flip charts, markers, etc.
Constraints The various constraints that lay in the trainers mind are:
Time
Accommodation, facilities and their availability
Furnishings and equipments
Budget

27

Design of the training, etc

TRAINING IMPLEMENTATION
To put training program into effect according to definite plan or procedure is called training
implementation. Training implementation is the hardest part of the system because one wrong
step can lead to the failure of whole training program. Even the best training program will fail
due to one wrong action.
Training implementation can be segregated into:
Practical administrative arrangements
Carrying out of the training
Implementing Training
Once the staff, course, content, equipments, topics are ready, the training is implemented.
Completing training design does not mean that the work is done because implementation phase
requires continual adjusting, redesigning, and refining. Preparation is the most important factor
to taste the success. Therefore, following are the factors that are kept in mind while
implementing training program:
The trainer The trainer need to be prepared mentally before the delivery of content. Trainer
prepares materials and activities well in advance. The trainer also set grounds before meeting
with participants by making sure that he is comfortable with course content and is flexible in his
approach.
Physical set-up Good physical set up is pre-requisite for effective and successful training
program because it makes the first impression on participants. Classrooms should not be very
small or big but as nearly square as possible. This will bring people together both physically and
psychologically. Also, right amount of space should be allocated to every participant.
Establishing rapport with participants There are various ways by which a trainer can
establish good rapport with trainees by:
Greeting participants simple way to ease those initial tense moments
28

Encouraging informal conversation


Remembering their first name
Pairing up the learners and have them familiarized with one another
Listening carefully to trainees comments and opinions
Telling the learners by what name the trainer wants to be addressed
Getting to class before the arrival of learners
Starting the class promptly at the scheduled time
Using familiar examples
Varying his instructional techniques
Using the alternate approach if one seems to bog down
Reviewing the agenda At the beginning of the training program it is very important to review
the program objective. The trainer must tell the participants the goal of the program, what is
expected out of trainers to do at the end of the program, and how the program will run. The
following information needs to be included:
Kinds of training activities
Schedule
Setting group norms
Housekeeping arrangements
Flow of the program
Handling problematic situations

TRAINING EVALUATION
The process of examining a training program is called training evaluation. Training evaluation
checks whether training has had the desired effect. Training evaluation ensures that whether
candidates are able to implement their learning in their respective workplaces, or to the regular
work routines.
29

Purposes of Training Evaluation


The five main purposes of training evaluation are:
Feedback: It helps in giving feedback to the candidates by defining the objectives and linking it
to learning outcomes. Research: It helps in ascertaining the relationship between acquired
knowledge, transfer of knowledge at the work place, and training.

Control: It helps in controlling the training program because if the training is not effective, then
it can be dealt with accordingly.

Power games: At times, the top management (higher authoritative employee) uses the evaluative
data to manipulate it for their own benefits.
Intervention: It helps in determining that whether the actual outcomes are aligned with the
expected outcomes.

Process of Training Evaluation

30

Before Training: The learners skills and knowledge are assessed before the training program.
During the start of training, candidates generally perceive it as a waste of resources because at
most of the times candidates are unaware of the objectives and learning outcomes of the
program. Once aware, they are asked to give their opinions on the methods used and whether
those methods confirm to the candidates preferences and learning style.

During Training: It is the phase at which instruction is started. This phase usually consist of
short tests at regular intervals
After Training: It is the phase when learners skills and knowledge are assessed again to
measure the effectiveness of the training. This phase is designed to determine whether training
has had the desired effect at individual department and organizational levels. There are various
evaluation techniques for this phase.

Techniques of Evaluation The various methods of training evaluation are:


Observation
Questionnaire
31

Interview
Self diaries
Self recording of specific incidents

Management Development Program (MDP)


Management Development has become very important in todays competitive environment.
According to a survey, those companies that align their management development with
tactical planning are more competitive than the companies who are not. It has also been
indicated that 80% of the companies report MDP, compared with 90% that provide
executive leadership training. For most of the companies 37% of the training budgets go to
management development andlearningprograms.
Some of the reasons behind the management development programs are:

It is managements responsibility of ensuring the success of the organization

It is the management who deal with people of different background, culture, language, etc

Mergers and acquisitions, downsizing, etc are all under managements control

It is managements responsibility to ensure that the employees obtain the required KSAs
to perform the tasks

It is managements responsibility to ensure that right people is hired for the right job, at
the right time for the right place

Managers job is complex i.e. for the managers understanding the training need is not
easy because his training need is determined by how well his department is meeting its
objective and goal.

It is the management who makes decisions on the basis of judgment and intuition

It is the manager who performs several routine duties as well as handling the exceptions
in their own as well as subordinates routine

32

Managers are engaged in varied, discontinues, and brief activities

It is the management that understand the organization, its vision, mission, ethics, values,
strategies, capabilities, and how his organization fits into the industry, and how his
behavior will influence people outside the organization

Therefore, managers must be able to get the required knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) to
meet the challenges as soon as they arise.

SUPERVISORY TRAINING

REASON FOR CHOOSING THIS TOPIC


It is needed to fill the gap between employees present specifications and the job
requirements and organizational needs by developing and molding the employees skill ,
knowledge , attitude , behavior , etc. This problem can only be sorted out through proper
and specific training of employees . The organization requires to train the employees to
enrich them in the areas of changing technical skills and knowledge in terms of
mechanization and computerization from time to time . The organization has to equip the
old employees with the advanced disciplines, techniques or technology, this purpose is
solved through training and development of personnels.

The gap between actual and expected performance, behavior and attitude leads to
emergence of training. But the main purpose of training is to attain that level of
performance, behavior and attitude in employees, which leads to fulfillment of the
objectives of any organization.
Any succession planning initiative becomes ineffective without management development,
which is a scientific training process for managers and executives to enrich their
knowledge and skills, so as to make them competent to manage their organizations
effectively. Unlike general purpose training, management development programmes aim at
developing conceptual and human skills of managers and executives through organized
and systematic procedures.
These programmes offer an opportunity to hone the skills of the practicing managers so
that they can face the emerging challenges of the industry with confidence and push
their organization for achieving higher growth. Thus, by pursuing the relevant

management development programmes, one can also climb the career ladder faster. In this
study, I am going to review the process of training and development in indigo airlines
and evaluate the effectiveness & relevance of training and development procedures by the
companys own feedback forms filled by the employees of indigo airlines.

OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY.


1. To examine the effectiveness of training in overall development of skills of workforce.
2. To examine the impact of training on the workers.
3. To study the changes in behavioral pattern due to training.
4. To measure the differential change in output due to training
5. To compare the cost effectiveness in implanting training programmes.

6. To find out new methods of training and development in INDIGO AIRLINES.


7. To study the relevance of the post training evaluation/feedback for the employee as
well as for an organization.
8. To know the challenges in training and development faced by organization

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY :
INTRODUCTION
Research in common parlance refers to a search for knowledge. The advanced learners
dictionary of current English lays down the meaning of research as a careful investigation of
enquiry specially through search for new facts in any branch of knowledge.
The systematic approach concerning generalization and the formulation of a theory is also
research. The purpose of research is to discover answers to questions through the application of
scientific procedures.

DATA COLLECTION
Data collection is a term used to describe a process of preparing and
collecting business data - for example as part of a process improvement or similar
project.
Data collection usually takes place early on in an improvement project, and is often
formalized through a data collection Plan which often contains the following activity.
1. Pre collection activity Agree goals, target data, definitions, methods
2. Collection data collection
3. Present Findings usually involves some form of sorting analysis and/or
presentation.
There are two methods of data collection which are discussed below:
1.PRIMARY DATA 2. SECONDARY DATA
In primary data collection, you collect the data yourself using methods such as interviews
35

and questionnaires. The key point here is that the data you collect is unique to you and
your research and, until you publish, no one else has access to it.
I have tried to collect the data using methods such as interviews and questionnaires. The
key point here is that the data collected is unique and research and, no one else has
access to it. It is done to get the real scenario and to get the original data of present.
SECONDARY DATA
All methods of data collection can supply quantitative data (numbers, statistics or
financial) or qualitative data (usually words or text). Quantitative data may often be
presented in tabular or graphical form. Secondary data is data that has already been
collected by someone else for a different purpose to yours.
Need of using secondary data
1. Data is of use in the collection of primary data.
2. They are one of the cheapest and easiest means of access to information.
3. Secondary data may actually provided enough information to resolve the problem
being investigated.
4. Secondary data can be a valuable source of new ideas that can be explored later
through primary research.
Limitation of secondary data
1. May be outdated.
2. No control over data collection.
3. May not be reported in the required form.
4. May not be reported in the required form.
5. May not be very accurate.
6. Collection for some other purpose.

DATA COLLECTION TECHNIQUE


Questionnaire:
Questionnaire are a popular means of collecting data, but are difficult to design and often
require many rewrites before an acceptable questionnaire is produced. The features
included in questionnaire are:
Theme and covering letter
Instruction for completion
Types of questions
Length
Interview:
This technique is primarily used to gain an understanding of the underlying reasons and
motivations for peoples attitudes, preferences or behavior. The interview was done by
asking a general question. I encourage the respondent to talk freely. I have used an
unstructured format, the subsequent direction of the interview being determined by the
respondents initial reply, and come to know what is its initial problem is.
SAMPLING METHODOLOGY
Sampling technique:
Initially, a rough draft was prepared keeping in mind the objective of the research. A pilot
study was done in order to know the accuracy of the questionnaire. The final
questionnaire was arrived only after certain important changes were done. Thus my
sampling came out to be judgmental and continent.
Sampling Unit:
The respondents who were asked to fill out questionnaires are the sampling units. These
comprise of employees of corporate HR, indigo airlines , who had attended the
personality development workshop.
Sampling Size: 20

2.4 INTERGLOBE AVIATION PRIVATE LIMITED


InterGlobe operates IndiGo, Indias leading domestic low cost airline. IndiGo is the
youngest fleet of aircraft in the country. It offers a uniquely smooth, seamless, precise and
gimmick-free customer experience at fares that are extremely affordable.
Indigo is built for the people with things to do, place to be people to see-who dont want to
waste time, money or energy in the process. By minimizing time/cost/tension of air travel,
Indigo opens up a country full of opportunities.
One of the prominent offerings of our aviation portfolio is IndiGo airlines. A low-cost
domestic carrier, IndiGo has a fleet of brand new Airbus-A320 aircrafts and currently operates

44

daily flights connecting all major destinations in India. IndiGo stands for three things:
Affordable Fares, On-Time performance and a Hassle-Free flying experience.

2.4 INDIGO AIRLINES


India is one of the fastest growing aviation industries in the world. Because of the introduction of
liberalization policy in the Indian aviation sector, the industry has witnessed a vast difference
with the entry of the privately owned full service airlines and low cost carriers. In 2006, the
private carriers accounted for around 75% share of the domestic aviation market. Besides, there
was significant increase in the number of domestic air travel passengers. Some of the factors that
have resulted in higher demand for air transport in India include the growing purchasing power
of middle class, low airfares offered by low cost carriers and the growth of the tourism industry
in India. In addition to the liberalization policy, the deregulation policy has also played a major
role to encourage private players in the aviation industry. Below graph shows the gradual growth
in the domestic air traffic:
The growth in the aviation industry looked promising and hence attracted many low cost carriers
like SpiceJet, GoAir and IndiGo after the success of Air Deccan in 2003 [Exhibit 1]. On one
hand, the booming opportunities incited players to expand capacity but on the other hand, rising
fuel costs and taxation rates, increased the operational costs. Thus the low-cost players found it
difficult to maintain their commitment. In their urge to survive, they were compelled to increase
prices, add free refreshments and beverages on-board, etc. Some players sought refuge in
mergers, whereas some survived by modifying their business model. However, amidst this
aviation turmoil, IndiGo continued to fly high. In its endeavour to consistently maintain low
costs, IndiGo resorted to measures like outsourcing and having a homogeneous fleet. These
efforts helped IndiGo to offer its passengers low air fares.
IndiGo is the latest entrant as a low cost carrier in the aviation industry of India. It started its
operations on August 4, 2006. InterGlobe Enterprises, a renowned travel corporation, is the
owner of IndiGo. The IndiGo team uses all of these resources to design processes and rules that
are safe and simple, that make sense, and that cut waste and hassles, which in turn ensures a
uniquely smooth, seamless, precise, gimmick-free customer experience at fares that are always
45

affordable. It was awarded the title of Best Domestic Low Cost Carrier in India for 2008. The
airline currently operates 120 daily flights with a fleet of nineteen brand new Airbus A320
aircraft and flies to 17 destinations. IndiGo plans to serve approximately 30 Indian cities by
2010, with a fleet of approximately 40 A320s.1
Below are the key factors of the business model of IndiGo airlines:
A single passenger class.
Single type of airplane to reduce training and service cost.
No frills such as free food/drinks, lounges
Emphasis on direct sale of ticket through Internet to avoid fee and commissions paid
to travel agents.
Employees working in multiple roles.
Unbundling of ancillary charges to make the headline fare lower.

Research study of main topic

TRAINING PROGRAMMES FLOWING FROM TRAINING NEEDS:


The programmes are divided into three broad categories:
- Functional
- Behavioral
- General/ Omnibus programmes

59

1. Functional: The outcome of the training is measured by comparing the data pre-training and
post-training. A scale is developed for measuring the effectiveness of training based on the %
achievement of the objectives.
2. Behavioral: The effectiveness of the training of this nature is measured annually. This is seen
through the training need identification for the coming year for the employee. If the training need
is repeated there, then the training provided is taken as ineffective. If the training need is
repeated but with focus on a part of the need, then the training is partially effective. If not
repeated, then the training is effective.
