Training & Development

Mr. President,

You and I spoke prior and we had agreed that I would portray for you my vision when it comes to training and development as well as some specific recommendations about how best to implement this vision and philosophy as it relates to the same. I will also be offering some fairly specific recommendations about the subject so as to reinforce and propagate the vision that is being explained. While training and development is a bland and unimportant topic to many people, it is a vital part of improving and sustaining the workforce and it can fill many of the gaps that are left behind by high schools and colleges. This approach is necessary prepare our workers, especially the young ones, for the careers and jobs of the future.

Over the recent years and decades, there has been a seismic and major shift in the…

Development of High Potential Employees

Introduction

The identification, development, and retention of high-potential employees is one of the most important areas of research in industrial-organizational (I-O) psychology. Whereas the vast majority of the workforce will perform in ways that do promote organizational goals, the top performers in any organization are those that provide the firm with its competitive advantage. On the contrary, organizations that do not actively seek to identify, develop, and retain high-potential employees stand to lose a lot as top talent may seek opportunities to maximize potential elsewhere—often a competitor. Moreover, the high potential employees are those with the greatest potential to lead the firm in the future, paving the way for effective succession training and management.
Research on the identification, development, and retention of high-potential employees is burgeoning, but there are significant gaps in the literature. Filling those gaps would help organizations create and implement evidence-based practices to ensure the success of…

With the guarantee of $60,000 for next year from the community churches, the New Youth Center is challenged with the task of raising the additional $300,000. $150,000 is expected to be received from within the business community. The reasons behind this belief are based on the fact that the center can also support the business objectives of contributors by improving their market perception within the community or creating tax deduction opportunities. The next $100,000 is expected to be donated by not-for-profit organizations which militate for the proper integration of youth, as well as for responsible citizenship and environmental protection. Due to the center's triple actions, it is expected that several NGOs participate to raising the necessary funds. Finally, the last $50,000 is to be raised from individual members of the community, such as parents or other people who get a sense of personal fulfillment…

The technological environment might be the most important environmental factor for organizational development going forwards. In particular, advances in communication have increased the pace at which business operates today. In addition, the increase in communication speed and intensity has resulted in the evolution of the knowledge economy. hen a company's success depends almost wholly on its knowledge base, organizational development becomes critical to the company's success.

This is because organizational development places specific emphasis on the human resources and organizational culture functions. Talent must be attracted, retained and shepherded in order to achieve long-term success in an information economy. Companies that do not have plans in place to help them foster strong organizational development will struggle to meet the requirements of the information economy as they will lose key people, fail to attract talent, or will have cultures that are incongruent with the dynamism in today's economy.

The second type of competition is posed by the local pet care services, which -- similar to The Happy Pup Daycare Center -- are focused on small scale services, with an increased willingness and ability to customize the service offering. These local companies are however not as threatening as they all activate in an underserved market, and especially as they are geographically spread to several smaller areas, that seldom intersect.

d) Economic Analysis

The pet care services industry is expected to be influenced by the general state of the economy, with the understanding that an improved economic condition would generate an increase in the demand for pet care services, whereas an economic contraction would result in a decrease in the demand for pet care services. Today, the economy strives to revive from a recession and the demand for the pet care services would be contracted in comparison to its potential…

Supporting Strategic Development

One of the biggest development issues any company ahs is if they are at a stage where growth into new markets is possible. At some point the market place is going to get so crowded that a company has to decide whether it is going to try and survive in the present market or forge into new ones. Or, the company can simply create a new market through a niche product. Whatever the solution, the company first has to tak a close look at itself to determine if it is a good idea for them or not. The process by which companies do this is by determining a strategic plan whereby it is possible. To implement this strategic plan a company will have use different approaches that take into account how the company is doing at all levels of the process. Considering that a certain…

Spencer's

Model of Staff Development

This essay attempts to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the Spencer model of staff development as it pertains to my work environment in the retail jewelry business. In other words, by understanding the fundamentals of staff development and the Spencer model and principles, I will attempt to correlate any associated relevance to my department. Staff development in the retail industry entails many areas; however, even though the jewelry business is basically the same sales process as compared to a clothing or shoe retail outlet in many respects, this industry also requires even more focused staff development because of the end product, the level and sophistication of the consumer as well as the extra security and integrity requirements. Jewelry retail is more a 'One-on-One Consultancy' process where sales staffs are appointed to work as one-on-one consumer-focused services. This means that that under training or inexperience…

Volunteer activities

Volunteers are considered to be compassionate, patience, unselfish caring and just plain love which are expressed by an individual to another. Voluntarism is considered to be in kind donation in that it is where a person donates his skills and manpower to the organization by performing duties a signed to him. Management and leadership of nonprofit organizations should ensure that they get highly skilled volunteers who come and stay through the extension of the visions of the volunteering through creating an experience which is meaningful, develops skills, demonstrate impact and ability to tap into the volunteers' capabilities and interest.

Volunteers my stop rendering their services due to poor management practices. Nonprofit organizations should tap volunteers to help in doing charitable work in their organization. Most people do not volunteer because they are never given a chance by the nonprofit organizations.

In terms of the organizational development style to be used throughout the change process, this should best be the pathfinder style. Despite the complexity of this approach, fact remains that it combines the benefits of other styles, while reducing their limitations. The pathfinder style virtually focuses on both high levels of organizational effectiveness, as well as high levels of member satisfaction (Harvey and Brown, 2001). This means that the approach will focus on improving senior-junior communications, for the satisfaction of the employees, as well as the increase in the performances of the overall entity.

Given that the process of change cannot be structured onto a strict plan, but that the plan has to be tailored to the unique features of the Mobile Mine Assembly Group, the levels of formalization at this stage are reduced. Nevertheless, throughout the actual implementation, or the time in which the change strategy comes into direct…

The different types of fundraisers are numerous. Some groups choose to hold auctions or raffles in which they make profits off the sale goods that have been donated. Others choose from many different types of activities such as a walk-a-thon or bowl -a-thon. During these events money is raised by donations from supporters based on how many times, or for how long a specific activity is accomplished (What are the Different Types of Fundraisers, 2009). Tele-a-thons are also very popular ways for some nonprofit organizations to raise money.

Fundraising is not always an easy thing to do but it is a very vital function for all nonprofit organizations. It is so vital because this is the way that these organizations obtain the funds that they need to go about doing what their organization was originally set up to do. These campaigns are usually their only source of income. So in…

The importance of self-development in becoming a manager

Self-development is defined first and foremost as an overall holistic desire to find one's freedom and the desire to connect with one's self and own sense of worth, integrity and happiness so as to enjoy abundant happiness both at home and at work. Self-development in simpler terms is that amazing quest / journey that a person embarks on; a point of realization when all the pieces of a person's life fall together and they finally remove their own self limitations and inhibitions that hinder or stop any person more so a manager from achieving greatness. This definition…

AIDS on South African Development

Today, the chromium, platinum, gold and diamond mining sectors provide the largest percentage of export revenues for South Africa. One of the inevitable consequences of these natural resource extraction industries is the proliferation of mining camps that house the migrant domestic and foreign workers from neighboring countries that support the industry. Although conditions vary, most mining camps are squalid affairs that lack running water, electricity or the other basic amenities of modern life that most people take for granted. These harsh living conditions, combined with the loneliness that results from being forced to spend long periods of time away from family and friends, create an ideal environment for the spread of communicable diseases, especially human immunodeficiency virus / acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV / AIDS). This paper provides a review of the related primary and secondary literature concerning mining camps and their role in the spread…

It could be achieved through the implementation of the following strategies:

a. Offering training programs especially designed to the characteristics of each position b. Enrolling the employees into training programs based on time quality management (increasing task quality in the same amount of time) or the concepts of the learning organization c. Implementing and promoting change as an ongoing process and a part of the organizational culture, rather than a sporadic event, and finally d. Implementing reward systems, such as premiums, bonuses or even promotions. These will further motivate the staff members to increase their performances, contributing as such to the creation of the dynamic and challenging working environment.

The strategies proposed are extremely complex and are aimed to generate benefits on the long-term. This automatically means that their implementation will require patience and attention to details. Aside this, the change plan will also require financial resources. The punctual courses…

In today's competitive business environment, it is more and more important for an individual to take responsibility for their own growth and development in the workplace. CPD is a combination of approaches, ideas and techniques that help one manage their own learning and growth. The focus of CPD is firmly on the benefits that professional development can bring one in the real world. Perhaps the most important message is that one size doesn't fit all. Wherever one is in their career now, and whatever they want to achieve, their CPD should be uniquely theirs (What is CPD, 2012).

Pre-qualification education and Initial Professional Development cannot provide all the knowledge and skills that one needs for their entire career. Most professionals will want to specialize or move into senior or managerial positions during their careers, as well as needing to develop the knowledge and…

d.). Even SWOT analysis can help urban planners determine situational variables, approximate risk, and therefore maximize the efficiency of an economic development plan. Issues such as community competitiveness have a strong impact on outside investors, which is another reason why urban planners must take advantage of a wide range of techniques. Urban planners can encourage economic development via a multi-stage process: analysis of need, analysis of risk, and analysis of potential investors.

As it relates to urban planning, sustainable development combines socially and environmentally responsible initiatives. Those initiatives must also be proven to stimulate economic growth and development in the community. Some government incentives may be offered directly for the purposes of creating and implementing sustainable development programs for communities. Land-use planning is one key facet of sustainable urban development.

Previously the element of interest and personal motivation were found missing, the technical capabilities of the employees have never been a matter of debate, however the personal and mental capacities and limitations are either ignored or not respected which resulted in the poor performance of the organization. Apparently, the rise in the demands pertaining to the particpation of the employees and the industrial democracy has also distorted the professional environment. Such all complains were lately resolved and answered through the unique approach of the organization, the organization has understood the significance of the employees, and had realized that their performance is not based upon their professional capabilities, but rather it is the function of the mental capability of the employee related to the friendly and conducive environment offered to the employees occasionally. The need of the employees that focus upon peaceful, conducive and liberal environment has been ensured, which required…

Transformation is key when it comes to local economic development initiatives. Ever since World War II economies in so many different rural areas have been faced with the rising harsh economic circumstances that have been threatening people's everyday existence. A lot of the situations that they are going through have a lot to do with depopulation resulting for the most part from low growth in job opportunities, out-migration, an aging population, underemployment rate, high unemployment and low family income, lack of socio-economic infrastructure ( shopping centers, health centers, schools, power and electric supply water supply,). esearch show that the rural economy in both developed and developing nations countries has also gone through a big…

Training and development are a major concern for employees in any organization regardless of private or public sector.

The role of change

"Change is so pervasive in our lives that it almost defeats description and analysis" -- (Mortensen, 2008)

Change at any level, individual or collective (communal/familial, societal, or organizational), is a complex and challenging process that requires time, energy, commitment, and often some level of distinct intention and sacrifice, on both the front and back ends of the process. Change describes both the action(s) and the result(s) of any type of alteration, modification, transformation, or exchange of one behavior/idea for another from smaller-scale individual changes to large-scale organizational (or social systems) changes.

At any level, the process of change needs to be managed to some degree. Generally, individuals can manage their own processes of change and in many individual cases, change may happen more spontaneously. Change that occurs in systems, like organizational change, requires a more strategic (or structured) approach…

Training can play an important role in organizational development. Organizational development is understood to be a "planned, organization wide effort to increase organizational effectiveness" (ODN, 2014). Training naturally plays a critical role in this process. De Silva (1997) defines training as "transferring information and knowledge" and equipping employees to put this knowledge into practice. Training therefore is a means of increasing the organization's total knowledge in order to increase its capabilities.

For a training program to be effective in improving organizational development, it needs to be focused on specific objectives that pertain to the organization's overall mission. By creating an alignment between the needs of the organization, through a skills assessment for example, a training program can be developed to increase the organization's capabilities in areas that are the most important. Knowledge and capability are of course only part of the equation -- by increasing organizational knowledge the potential…

Organisational Development at SPCA

Of all Queensland's societies and organisations dedicated to the prevention of animal cruelty and bettering the lives of animals, the oyal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals (SPCA Qld) is the oldest. The organisation needs approximately $42 million in funding every year to help build and maintain the various programs and services it offers. Since SPCA Qld is a community-based non-government charity, most of its funding comes from donations, sponsorships and bequests from the local community. Government funding accounts for less than 1% of the money it receives (SPCA Queensland, 2016).

The organisation boasts a rich and interesting history that spans 130 years. It started with just a single supporter and has now grown into a sizeable organisation with 270 remunerated employees and 3,000 dedicated…

Kenya: A Case Study in Reform

From its rough beginnings, Kenya has instituted a series of economic reforms in an attempt to raise the condition of the Kenyan people. They are an attempt to bring the Kenyan people out of a state of poverty and repression to one of stability and security about their ability to sustain themselves. Each reform has been better than the last, but they are still far from solving these issues in their country. This paper will cite the reasons for this as being a need for the people to regain the feeling of nationalism echoed in the early years of independence.

Kenya's History:

Prior to1800 Kenya consisted of groups of small tribal governments. Kenya is grouped into more than 70 ethnic groups, Some of the ethnic tribes are large e.g. The Agikuyu who form a majority of the population within their homeland in the central…

Super's Life-Span Theory

Career development is a continuous process that can last for a lifetime since it incorporates the decisions and changes that individuals make from entry into a particular field until retirement. This view is supported by David Super's Life-Span Theory, which postulates that personal change is a continuous process because people are influenced by various factors in life as the develop from one stage to another and experience different life roles. The continuous nature of career development is also attributable to the fact that people have the capability to carry out different duties across several occupations. Therefore, career is not an isolated phenomenon, but a social phenomenon influenced by social factors and the organization where these factors are rooted (Baruch, 2004). In essence, career development should be viewed through the lenses of its changing nature because of individuals' potential to develop different skills and ability throughout their life…

Maxx Company -- Strategic Marketing Plan

TK Maxx Strategic Marketing Plan

TK Maxx is expanding beyond the brick and mortar footprint that helped it rise to the top of retail operations in the United Kingdom. As with its competitors, TK Maxx has entered the mobile digital market and is implementing multiple distribution channels (McVey, 1960). The company has a clear target market that transcends the various channels over which its goods are marketed. This is the case because the market segment targeted by TK Maxx is made up of digital natives or consumers who have discovered the benefits of being technologically savvy -- particularly for shopping.

The marketing objectives for TK Maxx were identified as follows:

To increase market share for kid's shoes by 25% by September 2018.

To increase market share in home textiles by 15% by September 2018.

To increase e-commerce sales of designer bags and accessories by…

HR Plan: Philips Academy Andover
Introduction
The Human Resources (HR) department of any organization is the spine of the entity. This is where the integrity of the company needs to reside, and where the team members can be protected from potential abuses of power. Abuses of power are more common than most people care to admit, and are one of the reasons that HR was born in the first place. As history has demonstrated without a doubt, where there are human beings there will always be abuses of power, as power as the tendency to corrupt others. However, aside from the corruption of authority, the HR department is there to make sure that members of the team are getting their needs meet and are being protected as they build their careers. This plan will imitate the mentality of many other companies and have the HR department view the employees as…
