Training: Changing Times

December 24, 2009 1 comment

Internet must be the greatest discovery of the 20th Century. And it changed our lives (personal, professional and social) like never before. From communication to commerce, technology percolated in everything.

As a HR professional it was interesting for us to reflect on how it has changed the function and what lies in future.

Here is the shift I have observed in the training function:

From To
Training Sessions
Formal sessions with clearly defined learning objectives running for 2 to 5 days Semi formal sessions with smaller duration targeted at incremental learning
Highly experienced Trainer with mastery on the subject  Younger trainers with experience on a niche tool/ technology
Role of HR
Training Coordination  Talent Management
