Melbourne, Australia, August 13, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- To survive in this fast paced, highly competitive business environment, more organizations are focusing on their most powerful lever; their people. Building an organization’s capability through skilling up and developing its individual people and its teams is not easy. This is where Business Performance P/L’s Training Management Maturity Model and assessment tools can help.
Releasing the Third Edition of their best practice pack this week, Business Performance P/L Director, Vicki Heath, said, “Our best practice toolset takes organizations on an improvement journey. The journey starts from getting the training administration processes right. Then it progresses to making sure that the quality of training delivered is high. From there, it advances to ensuring that training plans are linked to the organization’s overall strategy. The end point of all this is building an organization that focuses unswervingly on measurable organizational, team and individual performance.”
This unique four-phased approach allows organizations to build their learning capability in measured steps. For each phase, the Training Management Maturity Model distils the Primary Objective, Key Practices and Key Performance Indicators required for exemplary learning. The assessment tool allows organizations to determine at which level of maturity they are at. Where specific deficiencies are identified, the improvement model and toolset prompts where actions need to be taken to move organizational learning forward.
Heath added, “We achieved a complete revision of the package in this new edition. For this edition, we added an eight-step process guide for planning, completing and reporting a benchmarking exercise. The pack is now suitable for people that have not conducted assessments before as well as for experienced assessors. We also expanded the set of analysis and reporting tools. The pack now includes everything an organization needs during all phases of the planning, assessment, analysis and reporting exercise.”
The Third Edition of the Training Management Maturity Model includes these items:
1. Training Management Maturity Model, which includes a full description of the assessment model with Primary Objectives, Key Practices, Dependencies and Key Performance Indicators.
2. Training Management Maturity Assessment Guide, which includes guidance notes for assessors, leading them through the eight step process for conducting, analyzing and reporting the assessment.
3. Training Management Maturity Assessment Form as a customizable Microsoft Word assessor form.
4. Training Management Maturity Ratings and Charting Sheet, which is a multifunction worksheet for inputting ratings, calculating overall scores, determining achieved Maturity Level and graphically displaying a reporting chart.
5. Training Management Maturity Model Chart, which is a handy reference wall chart tabulating all elements of the Maturity Model.
The assessment form and analysis and reporting worksheet are reusable and fully customizable, and are supplied in the common Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel format. The Training Management Maturity Model can be used on any Microsoft Windows-based PC with Word and Excel installed. The guide is supplied as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file. Adobe Acrobat PDF files are readable on almost any computer. The Adobe Acrobat Reader is available as a free download from the Adobe website.
