Effective Training Steps

2. Set Goals and Objectives

Do your goals and objectives for the training clearly identify what you want the employees to learn and be able to do as a result of the training?

Goals and objectives should be specific, realistic, measurable, and limited in scope (you should plan how long the training will take to accomplish your goals and objectives). A few selected examples of training goals may include:
