Training Objectives and SMART Goals Paper
Building on your assignment from last week, where you used a Gap Analysis to conduct a Needs Assessment, identify one specific training need from that assessment and one group or department of employees who need the training.
Create three specific training objectives for that training, and analyze those objectives by creating SMART training goals. Your paper should include the following sections.
- Introduction: Post an introduction that explains the company background (brief), the training need established from last week’s needs assessment, and the group of employees who need the training. (5 points)
- Learning Style: Based on your readings from this week, identify the specific learning styles that will apply to that particular group of employees. (15 points)
- Training Objectives: Create three specific training objectives for your training. Ensure those are broken down in the three parts identified in our course lecture this week, and in your textbook (outcome, criterion, and condition). (25 points)
- Analysis: Analyze your training objectives using SMART training goals. (Review the Course Lesson for examples). Provide your analysis of your objectives, your brainstorming of the connections to future pieces of training (where applicable), and create your training goals. Again, show your work. (25 points)
Your paper should be about 4-5 pages, not including references or a title page. Use APA formatting. Include at least 3 scholarly sources (5 points).
