Introduction

M
             any executives choose to invest in new training, processes and applications that will
             help their company become more efficient, and that will help them to maintain a
             competitive edge. They feel the pain when employees don’t use the new applications
and/or when they fail to adhere to the new processes. Training & Development strategies have
to sustain the optimum usage of the workforce resources in the organization.

Staff training and development in an agency entails implementing processes in order to have
successful outcomes. Training and development strategies must align themselves to the
organization's strategy in order for them to actualize the company’s vision. The training strategy
is the system that determines the competencies that a company requires both presently and in the
future. It gives administrators the appropriate means to accomplish the desired end results. All
training and development strategies require a:

              vision
              focus
              direction
              plan of action

Compo nents of a Training & D evelopment Stra tegy
There are many important components that need to be included. You will need to put together a
detailed profile of the company’s:
          Action Plans
          Company Vision
          Competency Requirements
          Employee Training Needs
          Executive Coaching
          Leadership Development
          Objectives
