Training Design and Delivery
An organization that develops its human capital creates a distinct competitive advantage in today’s marketplace. Cook & Company can assist you in putting together an overall learning strategy, and/or developing a highly focused training program.
Training Needs Assessment
A training needs assessment often precedes training design to identify and then prioritize those critical competencies (skills, knowledge, behaviors) most directly linked to the attainment of business or departmental goals. The assessment process also identifies current competency levels and recommends various training and learning strategies to bridge the gap.
Training Program Design and Development
Custom-designed training is tailored to the specific industry environment, workplace culture and learning needs of the client organization. The Cook & Company team often partners with the client to create learning modules that reflect actual current, organization-specific business issues and challenges facing the company. Whether it is a half-day module, a weeklong off-site, or a Corporate University curriculum, we incorporate a range of learning tools and experiences to reach all types of learners.
We can deliver the training through our corps of trainers and facilitators or train your trainers as you develop an in-house capability for future training.
Overall Learning Strategy
Training is usually just one part of an overall learning strategy. There can be many internal as well as external components of such a strategy-such as coaching, mentoring, partnering, learning contracts, attending seminars, etc. Self-assessment tools, measurement of progress, feedback and the incorporation into the performance management process of support and reward for learning (both individual and team) can be important components of a successful learning strategy.
