The Future of Training: Better, Shorter, Cost-Effective
3:51 PM on Sep 24, 2010
In order to deliver organisational operational enhancements in the most affordable manner, it seems timely to focus on the vital role that training plays to the success of an organisation – and how training can help keep costs down.
Training is now more important than ever before. We have proven that implementing a systems approach to training, results in increased efficiencies in not only cost, but also quality and time.
We also recognise that transforming a training service while maintaining standards is not as simple as outsourcing delivery functions; it needs to be approached holistically. It is imperative that organisations build training into their strategic plans and budgets. Training enables enterprise-wide change, and has the potential to transform the processes within an organisation- thereby changing the way an organisation operates and does business.
As one of the world’s largest training companies, we leverage the lessons learned from some of the world’s largest training programmes and enterprises, including clients such as the United States Army, and General Motors worldwide.
We pair the right technology with the right learning objective for the right cost at the right point in the learning curriculum to achieve results. By using a holistic series of systematic tools and processes, we can implement and maintain a training system that ensures development and success for all personnel to achieve operational capability.
These tools have been leveraged globally to enable development of fit for purpose, optimally sized and minimally budgeted training regimes.
Operationally, outsourced training has numerous benefits to an organisation including; greater flexibility and increased personnel support, agility to respond to changing requirements and ultimately more efficient use of assets, time and existing resources.
For the foreseeable future, we will continue to see the need for training programmes to adapt and address to our changing environment as we see an increased focus on retaining personnel, upskilling existing personnel, deploying the latest techniques and ensuring efficiency, longevity and relevancy.
The pending UK Strategic Defence & Security Review (SDSR) will no doubt outline the balance there needs to be between affordability and delivering enhancements to operational capability.The outsource of training design and delivery can deliver significant savings across industry and government.
Traditionally, efforts to procure “value for money” training systems focussed on hardware. This focus will probably shift to operational expenditure also, which accounts for more than 70% of training budgets.
As a leader in the training market, Raytheon is evolving with the changing needs and providing solutions that are better, shorter and provide near-term and long-term savings.
