L&D: Tuesday L&D Processes Audit 35: T&D Staff Training and Development Process

T&D Process 10.2: T&D Staff Training and Development Process

Note: In my 2001 book I continued my decades old name for the profession as T&D – Training & Development.

Convert for your use as necessary. I will use both T&D and L&D in this weekly series for 2018.




Not all loose processes need to be tightened up.

You should only do that Investment if the Returns warrant.


Learning By Design vs Learning By Chance

When the Cost of Non-Conformance of poor Process/people Performance warrants the Investment in T&D/ Learning/Knowledge Management Content – then make those investments.

And – just because an L&D profession can determine a valid Learning Need and gap in Content – does not in and of itself warrant meeting that need – in any manner.

It’s a Business Decision. 


The L-C-S Framework View

I use both views…


Overview of the Big Picture


T&D Process 10.2: T&D Staff Training and Development Process

Process Purpose

The T&D Staff Training and Development Process assesses knowledge and skill compliance and develops an Individual T&D Plan from an organized, documented, and resourced curriculum of traditional and nontraditional information, education, training, and development events to ensure competence and development consistent with the projected, overall staffing needs of the T&D system.


Process Description

The T&D Staff Training and Development Process “walks the talk,” but not for everyone on the T&D staff. We never subscribe to the notion that everyone should receive equal treatment regarding T&D. The owners/shareholders of the enterprise simply cannot afford that philosophy and approach. There are probably numerous other, better investments to make on behalf of the shareholders.

We subscribe to the plan to conduct T&D development projects for key, critical targets within the T&D processes and for T&D staff populations, always consistent with the problems and opportunities within the T&D system and within the entire enterprise. This means first priorities first, second-level priorities second, and some priorities never.
