Krishnaveni, R.; Sripirabaa, B.
International Journal of Training and Development, v12 n2 p121-134 Jun 2008
In recognition of its increasing importance, many organizations make periodic assessments of their training and development activity. The objective of the present study was to extend the concept of capacity building to the assessment of training and development activity in an automobile component manufacturing organization, using a developed and validated instrument. The study subjects were 36 middle-level managers selected on a stratified basis. The research described here provides a new methodology for the evaluation of training and development activity. Perception-based, consensus-oriented assessment is proposed as a valuable tool for evaluating and improving training and development activity. Brainstorming sessions led to suggestions for enhancing capacity in identified lag areas. In addition, this assessment serves as a platform for subsequent evaluation of the effectiveness of training and development activity.
