Organizational Development Homework
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.
