. What are the key requirements in the design and delivery of the learning and development (L&D) activities?
produce an individual report to: Identify and critically analyse the learning and development strategy for a specific organisation and critically analyse the HRD implications.
You are required to identify a 12 month learning and development strategy for an organisation of your choice. If your choice of organisation already has this document readily available then you may focus on the methods of evaluation for the company. If the organisation does not have this document, then you can create one for them using case study examples from your wider reading from secondary research data to help you. The assignment word limit is 3,000 words (+/- 10%) in basic report format. Your report should address the following key areas:
1. Critically identify the anticipated HRD intervention outcomes for this programme. Critically outline the drivers for improvement and provide context and implications for the organisation in terms of any relevant aspects of HRD practice. 2. What types of internal and external data could be helpful in creating the L&D strategy?
If a training needs analysis (TNA) is part of the L&D activities, what is the current gap for the organisation and what information would be helpful to better understand the gap and potential solutions for reducing that gap?
Where can this data be located?
3. What are the key requirements in the design and delivery of the learning and development (L&D) activities?
Appraise the roles and responsibilities of individuals in meeting L&D needs. Who should hold accountability and have responsibility for the learning and development strategy and why?
4. Critically discuss how the learning and development strategy could be evaluated using Kirkpatrick’s evaluation model (1996; 2006), or similar. Critically explain why a systematic evaluation method is important for the organisation in measuring success.
