Training - at All Levels

It is the responsibility of the Senior Partner or Managing Director of abusiness enterprise, not of a member of middle management, to design and ensure the effective implementation of an appropriate training programme. All too often the responsibilities for matters relating to training of new recruits or existing members of staff are entrusted to an enthusiastic volunteer who is rarely given the appropriate authority, let alone resources to implement a programme of training. In most organisations the subject of training is well supported by management until the moment arises for them to nominate a member of their staff to go on a course. It is then that support for training rapidly converts to a barrage of excuses why the proposed candidate for training cannot be released. D.H. Stanger
