Many companies spend their professional development budgets on one-size-fits-all courses where only a portion of the course material has relevance to the employee being trained. It follows that customized training is now much more wanted for both the public and private business environments. There are a number of reasons behind this way of thinking.
Customized training is fully focused towards the learner. They are crafted to meet particular learning requirements. The content with its accompanying exercises are made to bridge gap from present state to desired state. The important learning outcomes can be measured. A majority of customized training approaches start with business collaboration to comprehend where each employee stands at knowledge level and the work needed to achieve the desired results.
Cohesive teams could be built by all the staff members importing different experiences and their skill sets to their work environment. Employees, by having customized courses sent to all team members simultaneously, not only learn the key concepts and their application as team, they also comprehend the positive results of applying such applications.
Practical application is key as learners understand important concepts by connecting material to their own unique situation. The customized courses include group exercises and case studies valid to actual work environment of the participants.
