At Revolution Learning and Development we understand that organisations don’t always have the time to clearly identify the training and development needs that exist in the business.
While processes such as appraisals and performance management reviews are taking place, it isn’t always that simple to clearly identify where the gaps are, meaning that training budgets are not always spent as effectively as they could be.
We also understand that there are occasions where training and development needs are obvious, but having the time and the resource to do something about it can sometimes be a struggle.
We can help. We can provide your business with a rounded Training Consultancy Service.
We will work with you and your business as training consultants to ensure you get the maximum out of your training budget.
As a training consultancy, we will work in partnership to help you and your business understand your training and development gaps, produce realistic proposals to close the gaps, design and deliver training and development solutions then provide an evaluation to identify the improvements made.
We follow a 4 step training consultancy process. These steps are:
Define – The initial stage of the training consultancy process is to meet and discuss what our role as training consultants will be. We want to know as much about the business as possible to help us later in the process.
We will gather as much data as we can. We can do this in various ways such as a simple discussion, reviewing performance management data, training needs analysis and focus groups. This will tell us where the gaps are, why they exist and initial ideas of what we can do together to close them.
We put all of this data into a detailed proposal and present it to you. We will be very honest and suggest, where necessary, that training is not needed, and there is another path that you may want to take.
Also at this stage, we will begin to discuss the evaluation process of the solution.
Design – Once agreed, we will then design a training and development solution that closes the gaps we identified. It may take the shape of a training course, coaching sessions or other training interventions.
At this stage, we will involve you every step of the way. You will sign off everything we do before moving on.
Deliver – We then move on to delivering your training solution. Our hand-picked trainers and facilitators will work with the groups of people who the solution is aimed at to ensure they get the skills and knowledge they need.
You may also want to choose a train the trainer approach at this stage. In other words, we had over the solution to your internal teams to deliver.
Evaluate – Once the solution has been delivered, we can then carry out a staged approach to evaluating the success of the solution using the Kirkpatrick 4 Stage Evaluation Model.
Once our evaluation has been concluded we will provide you with a detailed report of our findings along with any other recommendations.
You may choose not to engage as training consultants to carry out all of the above. You can pick and choose our level of involvement in your business.
