 Course Introduction

Manging the training function is a game of keeping pace with several moving parts. Staying on top of things, and staying relevant can be worrisome for not a few managers and specialists.

This course gives L&D practitioners and line managers the essential ready-to-use tips and tools for aligning the training and development function to organisational goals, and for maximizing your training ROI.

Effective management of the training function requires that practitioners “must be able to establish, manage and evaluate a cost-effective, value adding training function, and ensure a good ‘fit’ between the vision and strategy of training and development, and organisational vision and goals” (CIPD). This is the objective of this course!

Participants will come away with the skills to articulate corporate missions, identify required skills, and determine the optimum methods for making contributions to organisational success. Plus of course, networking with professional colleagues, and sharing best practices.

Practical video examples, role plays and case studies are used to facilitate the learning outcomes.
