Evaluation of Training Programme in Organizations.
In the present study, a Three Dimensional Model for Training Evaluation is presented. It consists of Pre Training Factors, Inputs and Post Training Factors. A case of a factory following this model holding training in Team Working is discussed. The training programme was developed on the basis of the assessment of training needs. The programme was executed for 125 operators in seven batches during nine months. They completed schooling and a technical course. Effect of the training on participants' job performance and in the factory at large also is checked along the model – pre training factors, inputs and post training factors. Two questionnaires for participants, observations, feedback and interviews of the superiors were used as instruments for evaluation. Evaluation suggested positive effect of the training programme. It can be stated that the Three Dimensional Model for Training Evaluation is applicable for training in other set ups also, such as, educational, medical, social work, etc. and about any training topic.
