Managing the Training Function

You are here


The training function is one of the most critical in an organization. Corporate America is spending over $50 billion a year in this area. We can no longer accept training as an “employee benefit” to be reduced when there is some financial pressure. The accountability for training must be recognized and implemented in order to achieve the desired results. In this seminar we focus on the critical issues that have been overlooked for many years.

The ability to ensure that the training function is correctly structured and positioned for maximum benefit is the major advantage of this seminar. The goal is to ensure that each participant has an approach to create the most effective training department possible.

In this seminar we incorporate short lecture discussions with several case studies. There is ample time for group and individual issues to be discussed by the instructor as well as the participants.


Participants will gain the ability to be able to:

  • Define the role of training so as to maximize the organizational benefit
  • Identify the 5 key issues that should be addressed in training needs analysis
  • Find what it takes to produce on the job performance results
  • Help management get better job results from training
  • Use a tool to analyze their training department’s activities to decide which activities are really paying off



This seminar is specially designed for training managers and supervisors. It also applies to those who have influence on the organizational training function.


This course has no prerequisite.


You will receive a course binder containing a copy of the presentation slides.
