Training & Development: A Dying Art

Business training is provided far less than it should be, often with excuses of constrained time, money and resources. But this means of "cost savings isn't recommended....The best companies employ ongoing training as a 'must have'....

"The lost art of business training" The Boston University Questrom School of Business

For well over a decade ago, cuts to training and development departments have been deep. All too often, subject matter experts and suppliers are now tasked with delivering "training". Without the tools or expertise to design effective training, many sessions end up being"information dumps", crammed with as much content as possible delivered in increasingly short timeframes.

To reduce the amount of time employees are away from the job for training, many organizations have scrapped all or most of their classroom training put all of their eggs in the e-learning basket. Usually, IT professionals, who are prime on e-learning design projects, have little familiarity with adult learning principles. It's not their areas of expertise. To save money, a lot of instructional design is outsourced to foreign, low wage rate countries. The end result is tedious page turners that produce little in the way of actual learning.

I don't think I've ever taken a course where I've seen such tangible results.

Morris Shawn, CEO, Roadpost

Anne has tremendous expertise as a team building specialist and presentation skills coach. I hired Anne to train our in-house trainers in the delivery of training programmes. It was an excellent investment. Not only did she connect with the group immediately, but she also had them fully engaged to the very end. I also personally benefited by sitting through a few of her sessions. I would certainly hire Anne again.

Phillip Brown, Director, Director, Human Resources & Administration at Caribbean Development Bank

Creativity and innovation are Anne's trademarks. Her writing, design, facilitation and accelerated training skills enable her to become involved in many initiatives including writing and designing presentations and speeches for members of the executive team.
