delving deep into the amalgamation of organizational strategy and HRD
framework, let us first understand briefly the meaning of each stage.
Need Analysis– Need refer to any
discrepancy or gap between what the organization wants to achieve and what is
actually happening in the real scenario. Need analysis can be classified into
three broad categories a. Organizational Evaluation b. Task based Evaluation 3.
Design – Design in the light of HRD
framework means to devise a strategy that can seal the gap discovered between
the intended goal and actual results, found in the need analysis stage. It is
achieved by carefully defining objectives which need to be achieved by the
training, creating lessons and training programs, acquiring correct training material
and a trainer, selecting and evaluating various techniques of teaching and
finally scheduling the training.
Implementation – It simply refers to the
execution of the training program conceived during the designing stage. It is
of utmost importance that the implementation is done in the correct time frame.
Evaluation – This is the stage where
the effectiveness of an HRD programs is gauged. In other words it measures the
degree up to which the HRD program was successful in achieving its purpose. It
is strategically important that during the evaluation phase the senior
managers, the trainer, the trainee and the HR manger must be present.
