How Do You Describe The Training and Learning Programs Being Implemented in Modern Day Organizations
As far as possible, please consider using your place of work as a case study in order to carry out the following assignment. If for whatever reason that you cannot fulfil the above requirement, please use another organisation (e.g. a past workplace or one to which you have access) with which you are familiar. Should you choose the latter option, please indicate accordingly. Most of the tasks within the assignment require you to reflect on your knowledge about the case study. Where appropriate and possible, you may need to check your understanding with an appropriate person within the organisation (or other appropriate sources). When you tackle the tasks, you may want to substantiate your comments or analysis with evidence (e.g. attach an appropriate diagram, documentary materials etc.). In addition, it is always advisable to make use of the learning content from the module to support your argument, though outside (additional) sources are admissible.
