Planning Corporate Training


Over the last few decades, there have been huge changes in the corporate training systems in organizations. Gone are the days when students could just graduate, find a job and stop going for classes. Today, learning is really a lifelong process. Only those who are diligent in learning new skills and upgrading their professional skillsets will be able to remain as wanted talents in organizations.

However, how do you know if the existing corporate training system is effective and when the system needs a revamp?


Here are the 4 signs that indicate ineffectiveness of the existing corporate training system:

  1. Poor business results
  2. Poor leadership
  3. Struggles with advancements in technology
  4. Low employee’s motivation

Upgrading your training programs would allow employees to develop new skills to correct those existing issues.

This problem of not being able recognize a suitable leader can be resolved by sending potential leaders to leadership training courses.


  1. Struggles with advancements in technology
