An organization’s ability to provide its employees with additional knowledge or skills that employees can effectively utilize remains central to raising the level of performance and productivity of both employees and the organization itself. Too many training opportunities, though, are not effectively created and utilized. The consequence is that the training presentation or program does not change the basic character or performance of an employee.
