Every year Training Magazine publishes a list of organizations whose training departments are deemed to be most effective and most efficient. To be on this top 125 list, training departments must meet a lengthy list of criteria. The criteria range from infrastructure, needs analysis, and metrics to delivery standards, finance, and overall training strategy.
There’s no magic or tricks to get on this list. It requires solid training architecture and a lot of hard work. It takes commitment from training directors, managers, instructional designers, instructors, and IT personnel.
Let’s look at some of the key criteria to make Training Magazine’s Top 125 list and how Langevin workshops can help get you there.
Training Objectives are Aligned with Organizational Objectives
Our 3-day Successful Training Manager workshop focuses on the role of the training manager from the writing of a mission statement, training department objectives, and policies to budgeting and managing instructional designers and instructors. One of the many topics covered in this workshop is how to align training with organizational needs to deliver cost-effective, first-class training.
Comprehensive Metrics at All Four Levels of Evaluation
Our 3-day Evaluation of Training workshop provides a very thorough look at the four levels of evaluation through 27 data collection techniques including ROI and ROE, and through isolating variables when performance has changed. With a comprehensive process, tools, and best practices, you can build and communicate a compelling case for the effectiveness of your training programs.
Training Delivery Standards
Langevin’s 3-day Instructional Techniques for New Instructors workshop focuses on lesson structure and delivery with lots of practice. Instructors who implement the techniques taught in this course exceed industry standards for training delivery.
Thorough Needs Analysis
Our 1-day Training Needs Analysis workshop is dedicated to conducting a faster, thorough needs analysis approach that is realistic in today’s climate. Included in the workshop are all the tools, templates, and formulas needed to determine if training is the solution to a job performance problem. Armed with the results of your analysis, you can ensure your organization invests only in training that has a positive impact on the bottom line.
Langevin’s 3-day Web-Based Training workshop focuses on a straightforward, streamlined process for creating interactive and engaging elearning. Web-based design, methods, media, and scripting set you up to go back to work to design robust elearning and meet industry stands in web-based training.
There is no guarantee on making Training Magazine’s Top 125 list as the quality of the applicants is very high. Organizations on the list make a huge investment and commitment to training and focus on the key areas to bring their training to the highest level. However, the five Langevin workshops mentioned above can help an organizations’ training department begin the journey toward the Top 125.
