  3. 3. Work force related concerns of organizations • Demand for experienced work force is increasing while supply is not improving at the same rate, its sometimes necessary that organizations recruit directly from campus • Even if recruiting work force from the industry, exact match of skills is not always possible • Existing work force also needs regular upgradation of skills to match the rapidly changing technology and market demands • Upgradation of skills and knowledge is always an important ingredient that improves the quality, quantity and diversity of output of the work force, as well as promote growth of the individual Website: www.nxnvision.com Email: info@nxnvision.com Phone: +91 98407 84107
  4. 4. Work force related concerns of organizations (2) • So if there is a gap between known skills and desired skills, in order to contribute to a given job function, organizations have to spend time and effort on training: – New recruits from campus or industry – Existing employees • Differences in skill levels are much wider in recruits from campus • Training should be relevant, effective and generate desired results Website: www.nxnvision.com Email: info@nxnvision.com Phone: +91 98407 84107
  5. 5. Concerns about training • Organizations always have several concerns regarding training: – Are competent and dependable trainers are available, especially those who have relevant industrial exposure rather than only academic knowledge? • Several times finding an in-house trainer with right knowledge and competency doesn’t work out – Is the training content is designed keeping in focus the future work areas of the trainees? Website: www.nxnvision.com Email: info@nxnvision.com Phone: +91 98407 84107
  6. 6. Concerns about training (2) – Will the delivery of the knowledge be imparted in a way that is easy to understand and more importantly, retained long after the training is over? – Are relevant, sufficient & non-trivial hands-on and practice sessions conducted? – Are the trainees able to assimilate the knowledge and skills learned, and use it at for real job functions? – Do the trainees become self-reliant in the shortest time possible?

Illustrate • Illustration - Analyse solved examples – Show step-by-step working of algorithms, flowcharts, code snippets etc. • Demonstrate working examples – Show working programs that use principles and ideas learnt in the training – Analyse the limits of the examples and discuss possible improvisations Website: www.nxnvision.com Email: info@nxnvision.com Phone: +91 98407 84107
  16. 16.

  19. 19. Tips & tricks • Provide the trainees with tips and tricks that I have accumulated over the years – These may or may not be found in any book/reference – This is my USP, a result of having worked as a software/system developer for over a decade – Would help the trainees to reduce time, effort and mistakes while being on the job Website: www.nxnvision.com Email: info@nxnvision.com Phone: +91 98407 84107
  20. 20. The road ahead • Training is always limited due to an upper bound on time so not everything, that is required on the job, can be taught in the class – So at end of every module, potential and general application areas of principles and skills learned would be discussed – Also what type of work to expect on the actual job would be discussed • This creates a positive frame in the mind of trainees about the type of work they are going to engage in • This also prepares the trainees for countering potential change of difficulty levels between the training and actual software development process Website: www.nxnvision.com Email: info@nxnvision.com Phone: +91 98407 84107
  21. 21. Conclusion • Training is a mandatory part of any organizational growth • Its absolute essential that the right trainer is selected to provide the required training • Only a trainer who understands the challenges and responsibilities of the given training, can deliver the goods • By following the correct and balanced methods trainings can do just what is required by the organization Website: www.nxnvision.com Email: info@nxnvision.com Phone: +91 98407 84107
