NOTES 6 - DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT

TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT

Training is a process of learning a sequence of programmed behaviour. It improves the employee's performance on the current job and prepares them for an intended job.
Development not only improves job performance but also brings about the growth of the personality. Individuals not only mature regarding their potential capacities but also become better individuals.

DIFFERENCE:

Training:
1.It's a short term process.
2.Refers to instruction in technical and mechanical problems
3.Targeted in most cases for non-managerial personnel
4.Specific job related purpose

Development:
1.It is a long term educational process.
2.Refers to philosophical and theoretical educational concepts
3.Managerial personnel
4.General knowledge purpose

PURPOSE OF TRAINING:
1.To improve Productivity: Training leads to increased operational productivity and increased company profit.
2.To improve Quality: Better trained workers are less likely to make operational mistakes.
3.To improve Organizational Climate: Training leads to improved production and product quality which enhances financial incentives. This in turn increases the overall morale of the organization.
4.To increase Health and Safety: Proper training prevents industrial accidents.
5.Personal Growth: Training gives employees a wider awareness, an enlarged skill base and that leads to enhanced personal growth.

PURPOSE OF DEVELOPMENT:
Management development attempts to improve managerial performance by imparting
1.Knowledge
2.Changing attitudes
3.Increasing skills

The major objective of development is managerial effectiveness through a planned and a deliberate process of learning. This provides for a planned growth of managers to meet the future organizational needs.
