Create a written proposal in which you detail the complete design of an employee training program.

Write a six to eight (7-9) page paper in which you:

  1. Design a two (2) day training program for a group of twenty (20) employees.
  2. Identify two to three (2-3) training needs though a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) and justify an approach for this training.
  3. Develop the training objective for this program based on an analysis of the business.
  4. Determine the training cost for the training program you are proposing. Include a detailed breakdown of time allotted for each piece, the subsequent cost analysis, and the total cost for the project as a whole.
  5. Select key training method(s) to deliver the program to employees, such as an e-Learning module or a one-day face-to-face training program.
  6. Create an agenda of activities for the training program.
  7. Use at least five (5) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as academic resources.
  8. Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:
  9. Typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.
  10. Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not included in the required page length.
  11. Include a reference page. Citations and references must follow APA format. The reference page is not included in the required page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Identify when to conduct a Training Needs Analysis (TNA).
  • Analyze the various approaches to performing a Training Needs Analysis.
  • Develop strategies for training design.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in training and development.
  • Write clearly and concisely about training and development using proper writing mechanics.


A more detail break down. (think training and development proposal, NOT business management or administration).

The following is what I will be looking for in your week eight paper. Please check your work again before turning it in. No guarantee that you will be able to redo your work.


Design a two (2) day training program for a group of twenty (20) employees. This question requires a response similar to the material on pages 134 - 138, 194 – 195, 306 – 311, and 337 – 344. This is a lengthy response and contains parts of some of the following questions. It is not an agenda. That is question six. Please reread the pages to see how a proper Training Program of any length should be created.


Identify two to three (2-3) training needs though a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) and justify an approach for this training. TNA’s are either proactive or reactive and both provide an organizational analysis, an operational analysis, or a person analysis. These items need to be identified in your response of the question. Pages 124 – 129


Develop the training objective for this program based on an analysis of the business. Based on the choice of proactive or reactive TNA, and an operational, organizational, or person analysis, your objectives need to address the training needs and be focused on either the trained reaction, learning, transfer of training, or organizational outcome. Pages 152 – 158


Determine the training cost for the training program you are proposing. Include a detailed breakdown of time allotted for each piece, the subsequent cost analysis, and the total cost for the project as a whole. This should be a chart or table similar to the one on page 151, or for e-training on pages 266 and 267. You should have a list of training items as well as personal costs listed with their respective costs AND a total cost. In addition to the chart, you must have a narrative explaining the chart or table.


Select key training method (s) to deliver the program to employees, such as an e-Learning module or a one-day face-to-face training program. Chapter Six was all on training methods with a table on page 237 and 237 listing lecturettes, open discussion, demonstrations, small-group discussion, equipment simulators, business games, memory games, in-basket and case studies, role-play, behavior modeling, task-related exercises or activities, coaching, and mentoring. Chapter Seven was all on electronic training methods with a table on page 253 listing CBT, PI, IM, ITS, and Virtual Reality.


Create an agenda of activities for the training program. An agenda should contain some of the following traits: Type the name of the training at the top of the agenda. Add the date, time, and location of the training. Make a list of the items you need to cover. For instance, if the training session is on Fire Safety, some of the items to be covered might include Electrical Safety, Fire Hazards, and Emergency Evacuation Plans. Organize the items in the order to be presented. Put them into a logical sequence. For instance, it may not make the most sense to start Fire Safety training by going over the Emergency Evacuation Plans before explaining how to identify fire hazards. Start the agenda with Introductions and end with Questions and Answers. Assign each topic item a bullet point or a numeral. Include the name of the individual responsible for presenting a particular item if more than one person is conducting the training.
 Review the agenda to verify it includes everything. Compare the duration of the training to the amount of information on the agenda. Adjust the agenda if you feel that the training will run over or run short. The agenda needs to be in chart or table form and MUST have a narrative.

Designing a Training Program
Design a two-day training program for a group of twenty employees
Candid Inc. is an organization that deals with the production of sweet cakes. It is a
small organization with an employee capacity of about twenty employees. The company has
been in operation for the last five years. However, during the previous two years, the
organization’s revenues have been decreasing. The management attributes this to lack of
proper training for the employees which reduces their satisfaction and eventually low
productivity.
The organization has therefore asked our firm to conduct a training session for all of
their twenty employees. The course will last for two days. The training process will take place
at the company’s conference room which is large enough to accommodate thirty individuals.
Besides, this will increase efficiency and also save on costs. According to the Training Needs
Analysis that we conducted, the company’s marketing team is not well-equipped with skills
necessary to relate well to customers. This often leads to low sales of the organization’s
products that are highly perishable which leads to losses. Training is, therefore, necessary to
enhance the customer relation skills and attitudes that are necessary for improving sales
(Bertram, Blase & Fixsen, 2015).
Identify two to three training needs through a Training Needs Analysis and justify an
approach to this training
The process of Training Needs Assessment enables the organization to understand the
kind of training that needs to take place (Brown & Ferrigno, 2014). Organizations have
always conducted training to their employees for reasons such as improving efficiency,
increasing profits and cost reduction. The assessment looks at the employee, their abilities and
skills together with the organizational knowledge that they possess which enables the

company to identify the gaps in need (Ford, 2014). By looking at different domains of the
Training Needs Analysis helps in the identification of fundamental skills and attitudes of
human elements that influence the system so that it is possible to offer training where
necessary. Three levels of a Training Needs Analysis include organizational, individual and
occupational needs. The regulatory requirements relate to the competence of employees in
their work and how they assist in meeting the corporate objectives. Professional training
needs include the knowledge and skills of individuals irrespective of their level of
employment. Lastly, individual training needs include those related to an individual in their
job position (Brown & Ferrigno, 2014). However, personal training is necessary for
improving the efficiency of individuals’ operations. An effective needs analysi...
