New Training Benchmarking Package Out Now
Submitted by Leslie Allan on August 14th, 2008
Today we announced the new release of our training management benchmarking package. This release takes our Training Management Maturity Model up to the Third Edition. Even now, there remains a dearth of benchmarking tools for managers running a training function. We are proud to fill this gap with a very competent evaluation package.
For this new edition, I decided to do a complete revision of the package. To begin with, I added an eight-step process guide for planning, completing and reporting a benchmarking exercise. Some people are new to benchmarking assessments, so I wanted to give them an extra guiding hand.
Secondly, I expanded the set of analysis and reporting tools included within the package. I think the pack now includes everything you will need and covers all phases of your planning, assessment, analysis and reporting exercise.
Here is what is now included in the pack:
Training Management Maturity Model, which includes a full description of the assessment model with Primary Objectives, Key Practices, Dependencies and Key Performance Indicators.
Training Management Maturity Assessment Guide, which includes guidance notes for assessors, leading them through the eight step process for conducting, analyzing and reporting the assessment.
Training Management Maturity Assessment Form as a customizable Microsoft Word assessor form.
Training Management Maturity Ratings and Charting Sheet, which is a multifunction worksheet for inputting ratings, calculating overall scores, determining achieved Maturity Level and graphically displaying a reporting chart.
Training Management Maturity Model Chart, which is a handy reference wall chart tabulating all elements of the Maturity Model.
If you want to find out more on the thinking behind the model, read my training systems article. You can also download the complimentary Maturity Model Wall Chart and a sample assessment from the Training Management Maturity Model product page. I feel this is a significant upgrade to our benchmarking model and assessment pack. I encourage you to check it out. If you have any questions, please send us an email or leave a comment below.
