During this presentation I will be discussing a change proposal within the organisation called ‘Al Shamel International’. This is an organisation that provides a worldwide shipping and cargo service.

By proposing a change for on-going training, I will discuss different theorists and will argue both for and against the importance of on-going training and why this change is beneficial and relevant within the organisation.
