Organizational Development

Throughout this module, we have examined how training and development programs can be created to improve performance. As we have discussed, an organization’s mission and strategy, along with other factors, can influence how HR professionals approach development.

For this week’s assignment, using the organization you currently work for, a previous organization, or an organization you are familiar with, do the following:

  1. Identify      and briefly summarize the organization’s mission, values, culture, and      strategic direction.
  2. Analyze      how the mission, vision, and strategy influences the type and frequency of      training within an organization. For instance, if your organization is      retail oriented and focused on millennial fashion, assess how training      should be conducted.
  3. Develop      two specific training strategies that would be effective in the      organization and industry that you identified. Explain the benefits of      these strategies and how these strategies are aligned with the      organization’s mission, vision, values, and culture.
