Mount Talent specialise in providing both standardized and customized training solutions. Hence we realize that there is a constant need to devise training models and designs to suit each client’s requirements specifically. Therefore before designing a training program for a client we take care of certain principles for designing a perfect and befitting training program for each of our client.
There are certain factors that have to be considered while designing a training process. These include:
The designing of an appropriate training program involves the clear understanding of the objective of the training. The training objectives and the organization’s goals have to be aligned to create the right mix.
Trainer forms the fundamental part of any training program. Mount Talent ensures that the trainers are the best in terms of knowledge and delivery of the training program. Our trainers also do a pre- training analysis of their own skills, be it domain oriented (technical) or interpersonal which enables them to deliver a quality content to the trainees.
The trainee’s profiles are thoroughly studied and scrutinized. This in turn helps in understanding the audience and hence in designing effective training programs for them.
Training climate includes the other tangible and intangible aspects related to the training environment. These comprise of ambience, perceptions for the training programs, feelings etc. We try to keep the training environment as favourable and comfortable as possible in whichever terms we could.
To start and sustain the training in the right pitch and tone it is very important to understand the learning pattern of the audience which entails determination of their educational and professional background, age, experience etc.
The training strategies have to be developed in sync with the information obtained after realization of the training objectives needs and the trainees’ profiles. Based on these the trainer prepares the strategies.
The training curriculum or contents also holds a lot of importance in proper designing of the training program. The trainer decides upon the contents to be delivered after understanding the training purpose. The content includes topics and modules to be covered in totality, which are then classified into KSA’s (knowledge, skills and attitude) and information.
The flow of contents have to precise otherwise the training would not be effective, which might defeat the entire purpose of the training. The contents are sequenced in the following manner:
- In order of increasing complexity
- From known to unknown
- From specific to general
- In order of relevance
- In order of dependency
After all the above steps are implemented, and a clear picture of the training objectives and strategy have been developed, the decisions pertaining to training tools, methodologies and techniques are made. This decision making depends on:
- Trainees’ Profile
- Trainer’s Style & Competency Level
- Availability of appropriate training climate, etc
These could be classified as printed training manuals or hand out; audio-visual aids, white boards, flip charts etc.
In the proposed training design process, we are however faced with challenges in form of certain constraints. These constraints comprise of time, budget, available training climate and aids etc.
Training Need Analysis is a very prominent necessity for designing an effective training program. TNA (Training Need Analysis) helps in determining the skill or competency gap between the effective performance and the present performance level.
We not only provide training design and delivery services to the organisations rather we also provide them with the effective training need analysis to help them determine the exact training requirement and hence do their budgeting appropriately in order to yield the accurate outcomes from the training conducted.
