Introduction of Training
It is a learning process that involves the acquisition of knowledge, sharpening of skills, concepts, rules, or changing of attitudes and behaviours to enhance the performance of employees. Training is activity leading to skilled behaviour. Training is about knowing where you stand (no matter how good or bad the current situation looks) at present, and where you will be after some point of time.
According to Edwin B. Flippo
“Training is the act of increasing knowledge and skill of an employee for doing a particular job.” “Principles of personnel management (1976, p. 209), Personnel Management (6th Edition, 1984, P. 114)
According to Michael Armstrong
“Training is the systematic development of the knowledge, skills and attitudes required by an individual to perform adequately a given task or job.”
Training Vs Development
“Teaching operational and technical skills to do the job for which an individual is hired”
Training is the formal and systematic modification of behaviour through learning which occurs as a result of education, instruction, development and planned experience.
“Teaching managers and professionals the skills needed for the present and future jobs”
Development is any learning activity, which is directed towards future, needs rather than present needs, and which is concerned more with career growth than immediate performance.
