The first step is to talk.
This is so we develop a full understanding of the training needs. The benefit of this is to select the right training approach.
This could be a face-to-face event, a distance learning course, or even a free online resource.
Secondly, we team up.
This is so we have the right number of people to arrange a training event - the critical mass. The benefit of this is two fold; by reaching the critical mass, the 'per person' cost is much lower than is otherwise possible. It could even mean that certain training that was prohibitively expensive might now be financially viable. Furthermore, attendees train with a range of people from other local companies and learn from each other.
The third step is to train.
The benefit here is improved performance and business results. Our role is to understand and team people up, not to train. We have complete freedom to choose the best training provider that fits the need. We choose local venues to eliminate travel and accommodation costs - giving further savings in both money and time.
And then we track.
We want to be sure that the training met the requirement, and if not, understand how we can put that right. We also ask for feedback on the performance of the trainer, so we can ensure Team Up Training continues to use only high quality providers. This approach is welcomed by trainers confident in their own standard of material and delivery.
In the longer term, team up training also continues to track to understand the impact the training has had on performance, in other words, the return on investment. This is the acid test of all training investment.
This approach to tracking gives the best opportunity for the investment to bring real benefit to both the individual and the organisation.
