The training program (fabrics, inc.)


Presented at the end of Chapters 4, 5, 8 and 9 of the Blanchard and  Thacker (2013) text, are examples of what would be done in a real  situation regarding a small business that requested training (these  sections can be found in the electronic text by going to the “Summary”  section for each chapter and scrolling down). Review the Fabrics Inc.  examples at the end of these chapters. These sections are labeled, “The  Training Program (Fabrics, Inc.)”. Blanchard and Thacker (2013) have  demonstrated the phases of the Training Process Model, from the needs  analysis to evaluation. Notice how the phases build on one another.

Chapter 4 presents the needs analysis, the beginning of a  step-by-step process for developing a training program, for this small  fabrications company. Chapter 5 continues with a description of the  Fabrics, Inc., training program identifying the training design. Chapter  8 provides examples of some of the training outputs, starting with the  instructor’s manual and elaborates on the development and implementation  steps. Finally, Chapter 9 examines the evaluation phase of the Fabrics,  Inc. training.

The paper should use APA formatted headings to identify each of the following required sections:

  • Abstract
  • Background of Fabrics, Inc.
  • Needs Analysis
  • Training Design
  • Development and Implementation
  • Evaluation of Training
  • Conclusion
  • References

The paper should be 2,000 to 2,500 4-6 single spaced-8-10 double spaced words in length (excluding the  title, abstract, and reference page) and respond to the following  prompts for each phase of the training process model:

Needs Analysis (Chapter 4)
Critique the organizational analysis  conducted for Fabrics, Inc. and determine if there are other questions  that should have been asked. Review the operational analysis done  through the interview. Note that it was not completed. Generate some of  the other questions that should be asked.

Training Design (Chapter 5)
In the design phase of Fabrics, Inc.  Blanchard and Thacker (2013) only developed objectives for conflict  resolution. Choose one of the other training requirements and develop  three to four learning objectives. Critique the design component and  identify areas that were not addressed satisfactorily.

Development and Implementation (Chapter 8)
Note that there is no  discussion of Fabrics, Inc. in the development or implementation aspects  of the training. List and describe additional training modules that  could be developed based on the training objectives that were developed  in the design phase of Fabrics, Inc.

Evaluation of Training (Chapter 9)
Evaluate the two evaluation  instruments used in the Fabrics, Inc. case. Discuss how the evaluation  results should be used. Be sure to address internal and external  validity of the measurements.
