Training quality

  • the input such as: learning needs, quality of course content and presentation and 
  • the output such as: reaction to learning, improved skills, knowledge, productivity and impact on individual and organizational performance. 

Learning on two levels

In order to be able to adjust learning content, delivery and training methods according to learner’s response, behaviour and performance, we evaluate learning on two levels:

  • Individual: conducted as summative and formative assessments of acquired skills and knowledge
  • Organisational: learning strategy is evaluated against strategic business goals and learning prioritization criteria as well as further needs that arise from changes in organisational and external environment.
