1.7. DIVISIONS OF TATA MOTORS

VEHICLE FACTORY

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 14 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

This division is the place where the final chassis of the automobile gets assembled. It is fed by
divisions like the Engine Division with aggregates of engine, axles, steering and gearbox and the
Forge division, which supplies the spring leaves for mounting axles on the chassis.
The frame or the load carrying structure is made in the frame shop located in this division and
the cowl (SFC & LP) types are provided by the cowl shop which uses modern carbon dioxide
and spot welding techniques for fabrication of the cowls.

ENGINE DIVISION

Engine Division is involved in manufacturing of engine. Raw materials to this division come in
the form of castings like the cylinder head, block, clutch housing, or forging like crankshaft, con
rods,.
All manufactured components are routed through either engine assembly or gearbox assembly.
The gear box, after assembly, finds its way to engine assembly where ultimately the engine,
complete gear box is assembled on AGVs (Automatic Guided Vehicles) and then send for testing
on Saj-Froude. Electronic test beds, where the engine is checked for load performance and speed
and smoke emission.

TML DRIVELINES

Axle division is located partially inside and partially outside the complex. The manufacturing
activities of the front and rear axle, the propeller shaft and the steering gearbox, king pin boring
and pad hole drilling are the most critical operations performed in the axle.
Perhaps the most critical component being manufactured in this division is the steering gearbox
assembly. The machining operation like grinding and lapping are performed here. The front axle
and rear axle are assembled on AGVs before they are send to truck division for assembly on
chassis.

The forge is divided between the inner and the outer complex. A variety of forging like camshaft,
front axle, stub-axle, con rod, pitman arm, bevel gears, crown wheel blank are being produced in
this division.

1.8. AIMS/OBJECTIVES OF LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT


The fundamental aim of training is to help the organization achieve its purpose by adding value
to its key resource the people it employs. Training means investing in the people to enable
them to perform better and to empower them tomake the best use of their natural abilities. The
particular objectives of training
are to:

Develop the competences of employees and improve their performance;

Help people to grow within the organization in order that, as far as


possible, its future needs for human resource can be met from within;

Reduce the learning time for employees starting in new jobs on


appointment, transfers or promotion, and ensure that they become fully
competent as quickly and economically as possible.

LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT


Any training and development programme must contain inputs which enable theParticipants to
gain skills learn theoretical concepts and help acquire vision tolook into distant future. In
addition to these, there is a need to impart ethical Orientation, emphasize on attitudinal changes
and stress upon decision-making and problem-solving abilities.

Skills

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 17 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

Training, as was stated earlier, is imparting skills to employees. A worker needsskills to operate
machines, and use other equipments with least damage or scrap. This is a basic skill without
which the operator will not be able to function. There is also the need for motor skills. Motor
skills refer to performance of specific physical activities. These skills involve training to move
various parts of ones body in response to certain external and internal stimuli. Common motor
skills include walking, riding a bicycle, tying a shoelace, throwing a ball and driving a car. Motor
skills are needed for all employees from the clerk to the general manager. Employees,
particularly supervisors and executives, need Interpersonal skills popular known as the people
skills. Interpersonal skills areneeded to understand one self and others better, and act accordingly.
Examplesof interpersonal skills include listening, persuading etc.

Education
The purpose of education is to teach theoretical concepts and develop a sense of reasoning and
judgment. That any training and development programme must contain an element of education
is well understood by HR specialist. Any such programme has university professors as resource
persons to enlighten participants about theoretical knowledge of the topic proposed to be
discussed.In fact organizations depute or encourage employees to do courses on a part time basis.
Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) are known to attend refreshercourses conducted by business
schools.

Development

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 18 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

Another component of a training and development is development which is lessskill oriented but
stressed on knowledge. Knowledge about business environment, management principles and
techniques, human relations, specificindustry analysis and the like is useful for better
management of the company.

Ethics
There is need for imparting greater ethical orientation to a training and development programme.
There is no denial of the fact that ethics are largely ignored in businesses. Unethical practices
abound in marketing, finance and production function in an organization. They are less see and
talked about in the personnel function. If the production, finance and marketing personnel
indulge in unethical practices the fault rests on the HR manager. It is his/her duty toenlighten all
the employees in the organization about the need of ethical behaviour.

Attitudinal Changes
Attitudes represent feeling and beliefs of individuals towards others. Attitude affects motivation,
satisfaction and job commitment. Negative attitudes need to be converted into positive attitudes.
Changing negative attitudes is difficult because
1. Employees refuse to changes
2. They have prior commitments
3. And information needed to change attitudes may not be sufficient
Nevertheless, attitude must be changed so that employees feel committed to the
organization, are motivated for better performance, and derive satisfaction from
there jobs and the work environment

Decisions Making and Problem Solving Skills

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 19 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

Decision making skill and problem solving skills focus on method and techniques for making
organizational decisions and solving work-related problems. Learning related to decision-making
and problem-solving skills seeks to improve trainees abilities to define structure problems,
collect and analysis information, generate alternative solution and make an optimal decision
among alternatives. Training of this type is typically provided to potential managers, supervisors
and professionals.

1.9.Make Learning Memorable


Information, but that can make receiving data or instructions a much more enjoyable experience,
Here are some softer training methods that are not necessarily essential to conveying which will
keep trainees involved and help them retain more information.

Make learning fun. Why? Trainees will not be enthusiastic if training sessions are dry
and dull. Few employees respond to or remember complicated concepts or theories; they
want to learn practical information about what they can do to get better results today. If
they dont find the message entertaining, they wont retain it. Since variety is the spice of
life, use several different training methods to engage trainees in a variety of ways. Also
work to alternate the pace of each session to keep trainees interest level high.
Use humor. Humor helps keep enthusiasm at peak levels. Trainers can make a point
more effectively by using humor than by drowning trainees in statistics or theories. Avoid
telling jokes, however, because humor is so subjective that someone in your audience
may be offended and lose track of training for the rest of the session. Personal, selfdeprecating humor is the safest way to go.
Use attractive packaging. Use materials that are well-packaged and that
communicate value. Professional packaging is a powerful tool for setting a good first
impression.
Encourage participation. Make the session lively by engaging participants in the
learning process. In fact, try to spend close to 80 percent of training time on group
participation. Encourage everyone in the training session to speak freely and candidly,
because learning occurs most readily when feelings are involved.
Build self-esteem. Employees understandably want to know whats in it for them.
They know that most training programs are designed to make money for the company,
but rarely does training lift employees spirits or help them to become better in their own
lives. Create a win-win environment by using the training program to build the
participants self-worth and self-esteem.

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

1.10.Qualities of Effective Trainers


While some of these qualities are obviously necessary for anyone in a teaching position, others
may not seem as necessary, such as being patient or open-minded. All of these attributes,
however, contribute to making top-notch trainers. All the best trainers are:

Good communicators. They speak well, express their thoughts clearly, and have an
engaging presentation style.
Knowledgeable. They know their topic cold. They understand all the concepts and
know all the details. They can answer questions thoroughly and at a level that trainees
understand. If they ever cant answer a question, they know exactly where to go to get
that answer and they promise to do so as soon as possible.
Experienced. They know what theyre talking about. Theyve been in the field doing
what they teach in training.
Good with people. Their personality styles may vary, but they enjoy working with
people. They can engage groups of people and work with them to meet training goals.
Interested in learning. They recognize the value of learning in their own lives and
want to help others learn. They find satisfaction in sharing with others the skills and
knowledge they have acquired through hard work and persistence.
Patient. They understand that people learn in different ways and at different paces. They
take the time to make sure each trainee understands whats going on and leaves training
sessions with the skills and knowledge he or she came to acquire.
Open-minded. They respect other peoples points of view and know that there are often
many ways to achieve the same objectives. They dont assume they know everything, but
instead are willing to listen to and learn from trainees.
Creative. They bring ingenuity and their own natural curiosity to the task of training.
They create an environment in their training sessions that encourages learning and
inspires trainees to reach beyond what they already know to explore new ideas and
methods.
Well-prepared. They know their material, their objectives, and their plan of
presentation. Theyve checked to see that any equipment they expect to use in training is
in place and operational. Theyve made sure that all supplies and supporting materials are
available in the right quantities.
Flexible. They are able to adjust their training plan to accommodate their audience and
still meet all training objectives.
Well-organized. Good trainers can handle several tasks at once. They know how to
manage their time and their work.

1.14.Methods and Techniques of Training


Training methods are categorized into two groups{I) on-the-job and
(ii) off-the-job methods.
On-the-job methods refer to methods that are applied in the
workplace, while the employee is actually working. Off-the-job methods are used
away from workplaces.
Training techniques represent the medium of imparting skills and knowledge to
employees. Obviously, training techniques are the means employed in the
training methods. Among the most commonly used techniques are lectures,
films, audio cassettes, case studies, role playing, video-tapes and simulations.

On the job Training (OJT)


Majority of industrial training is of the on-the-job training
type. OJT is conducted at the work site and in the context of the job.
Often, it is informal, as when an experienced worker shows a trainee how to
perform the job tasks
OJT has advantages. It is the most effective method as the trainee learns by
experience, making him or her highly competent. Further, the method is least
expensive since no formal training is organized. The trainee is highly motivated
to learn he or she is aware of the fact that his or her success on the job depends
on the training received. Finally, the training is free from an artificial situation of a
classroom. This contributes to the effectiveness of the programme.
OJT suffers form certain demerits as well. The experienced employee may lack
experience or inclination to train the juniors. The training programme itself is not
systematically organized. In addition, a poorly conducted OJT programme is
likely. to create safety hazards, result in damaged products or materials, and
bring unnecessary stress to the trainees.

OJT is conducted at the work site and in the context of the job. It is, much time,
informal. An experienced worker shows a trainee how to work on the job.

1.15.Conduct of Training
A final consideration is where the training and development programme is to be conducted.
Actually, the decision comes down to the following choices:
1. At the job itself
2. On site but not the job-for example, in a training room in the company
3. Off the site, such as in a university or college classroom, hotel, a resort, or
a conference centres.
Typically, basic skills are taught at the job, and basic grammar skills are taught
on the site. Much of interpersonal and conceptual skills are learnt off the site.

1.16.Implementation of the Training Programme


Once the training programme has been designed, it needs to be implemented.
Implementation is beset with certain problems. In the first place, most managers
are action-oriented and frequently say they are too busy to engage in training
efforts. Secondly, availability of trainers is a problem. In addition to possessing
communication skills, the trainers must know the company's philosophy, its
objectives, its formal and informal organizations, and the goals of the training
programme. Training and development requires a higher degree of creativity
than, perhaps, any other personnel specialty.
Scheduling training around the present work is another problem. How to
schedule training without disrupting the regular work? There is also the problem
of record keeping about the performance of a trainee during his or her training
period. This information may be useful to evaluate the progress of the trainee in
the company.
Programme implementation involves action on the following lines:
1. Deciding the location and organizing training and other facilities.
G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 25 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

2. Scheduling the training programme


3. Conducting the programme
4. Monitoring the progress of trainees.

1.17.Evaluation of the Programme


The last stage in the training and development process is the evaluation of results .Since huge
sums of money are spent on training and development, how far the programme has been useful
must be judged/determined. Evaluation helps determine the results of the training and
development programme. In practice, however, organizations either overlook or
lack facilities for evaluation.

1.18.Need for Evaluation


The main objective of evaluating the training programmatic to determine if they are
accomplishing specific training objectives, that are, correcting performance deficiencies. A
second reason for evaluation is to ensure that any changes in trainee capabilities are due to the
training programme and not due to any other conditions. Training programmes should be
evaluated to determine their cost effectiveness. Evaluation is useful to explain programme
failure, should finally, credibility of training and development is greatly enhanced when it is
proved that the organization has benefited tangibly from it.

1.19.Principles of Evaluation
Evaluation of the training programme must be based on the principles:
1. Evaluation specialist must be clear about the goals and purposes of evaluation.
2. Evaluation must be continuous and specific.
4. Evaluation must provide the means and focus for trainers to appraise themselves, their
practices and products.
5. Evaluation must be based on objective methods and standards.

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 26 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

6. Realistic target dates must be set for each phase of the evaluation process. A sense of urgency
must be developed, but deadlines that are unreasonably high will result in poor evaluation.

Donald Kirkpatrick developed four level models to assess training


effectiveness. According to him, evaluation always begins with level first and should move
through other levels in sequence.

Reaction Level
The purpose is to measure the individuals reaction to the training
activity. The benefit of Reaction level evaluation is to improve Training and
Development activity efficiency and effectiveness.

Learning Level
The basic purpose is to measure the learning transfer achieved by

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 27 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

the training and development activity. Another purpose is to determine to what extent
the individual increased their knowledge, skills and changed their attitudes by
applying quantitative or qualitative assessment methods.
Behaviour Level
The basic purpose is to measure changes in behavior of the
individual as a result of the training and development activity and how well the
enhancement of knowledge, skill, attitudes has prepared them for their role.

Result Level
The purpose is to measure the contribution of training and development to the achievement of
the business/operational goals.
There are three possible opportunities to undertake an evaluation:

Pre Training Evaluation


It is a method of judging the worth of a program before the program activities begin. The
objective of this evaluation is
(a) To determine the 10 appropriateness of the context of training activity and
(b) To help in defining relevant training objectives.

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 28 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

Context and Input Evaluation


Is a method of judging the worth of a program while the program activities are happening. The
objectives of this evaluation are
(a) To assess a training course or workshop as it progress
(b) To find out the extent of program implementation and
(c) To determine improvement and adjustments needed to attain the training objectives.

Post Training Evaluation


Is method of judging the worth of a program at the end of
the program activities. The focus is on the outcome. It tries to judge whether the
transfer of training to the job has taken place or not.
The onus to decide on the effectiveness of the training program should
primarily be on the employee and through his performance and quality of output, the
organization should form impressions. The employee undergoing training therefore should
demonstrate the additional skills and competence at his workplace to enable the organization to
value it and to realize the value such efforts add to the organization in achieving its goals and
objectives and to frame and practice relevant HR policies and processes.

Describe the outputs


Outputs are descriptive data about the training programs and participants, including
demographic data.

Follow-up
This process may include several methods to assess the outcomes and effect of
training programs over time.
Our model draws from principles in Donald Kirkpatricks four-level model, in which evalution
questions fall into the following categories:
Reaction: How was the training overall? What did participants like and dislike?
Learning: What knowledge and abilities did participants learn at the training?
Behavior: How have participants applied the skills they learned?
G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 29 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

Results: What was the effect on the agency or organization?

1.20.TYPES OF TRAINING:Evaluation can be characterized as being either formative or summative (see Table below)
broadly (and this is not a rule), formative evaluation looks at what leads to an intervention
working (the process), whereas summative evaluation looks at the short-term to long-term
outcomes of an intervention on the target group.
Formative evaluation takes place in the lead up to the project, as well as during the project in
order to improve the project design as it is being implemented (continual
improvement).Formative evaluation often lends itself to qualitative methods of inquiry.
Summative evaluation takes place during and following the project implementation, and is
associated with more objective, quatitative method. The distinction between formative and
summative evaluation can become blurred. Generally it is important to know both how an
intervention works, as well as if it worked. it is therefore important to capture and assess both
qualitative and quantitative data.

Goal based- Evaluation


Evaluation has typically involved measuring whether pre determined targets have been met.you
may be familiar with the term SMART (specific measurable attenable relevant and timely)
Goal based evaluation have abjectly set target usually determind by people responsible for the
funding or implementation of the project.goal based Evaluation does not question whether the
selected goal are valid, nor whether appropriate measures of effectiveness are being assessed
resent behavior change and research and evaluation practice purpose the use of goal free
Evaluation.
Goals-Free Evaluation
Goal-free evaluation looks at emergency and unitended consequences of a project by looking at
the actual effects without pre- empting what this may be.this type of evaluation focuses on the
change process within the target group. The Goal-free evaluation parallels a social learning
approach to evaluation which can be desearable where the goal of a project seek to built capacity
of people to manage a complex issue. In such case relying solely on a goal base evaluation may
not be appropriate as it can be difficult to set target and quantify a process of change as well as
capture change which one way not anticipate.
A key point to considered in setting goal and indecators of success is the validity of the indicator
this is specially important where you are looking to measure a largely un-observed behavior.In
such cases Proxy indicators are often use but this indicatos may be gross measure that consist of
many varied behavior of which only one may be of interest.The question is how to establish
meaningful indicators?

1.22.THE SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF LEARNING


INTRODUCTION

Learning is a very complex topic, eg when a psychologist talks about 'learning' he can be
referring to any type of behaviour from simple arithmetic to designing a computer system.
Therefore the learning theories you find in textbooks are attempts to analyse and explain very
broad areas of human experience. However, our concern here is with only ONE kind of learning
- classroom learning. The principles of learning we cover in this paper are limited in scope to this
particular type of behaviour - how people learn in the formal training situation.
These principles of learning have been derived from research, experiment and experience. They

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 32 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

are not unique to this course - you will find them in any syllabus for trainer training in one form
or another . Some are very old, while others have only been accepted fairly recently. Some which
used to be included have been dropped; which gives us a thought for the future. In ten years time
we may not be using the same principles - as our knowledge increases we may have to revise
some of our ideas.

SCOPE OF COURSE
Training (and education) is the application of these general principles to a particular learning
situation. These principles should help you to plan a good program, deliver it efficiently
and evaluateit afterwards. Here is a list of the principles we will be examining:
1 Feedback
2 Active Learning
3 Reinforcement
4 Meaningful Material
5 Multiple Sense Learning
6 Overlearning
7 Primary And Recency
Feedback
This principle states: Learning proceeds more efficiently when both instructor and trainee give
feedback to each other.
The instructor needs feedback to tell him how the trainee is progressing; and the trainee needs
feedback from the instructor on quality of performance.
Rules for the training room:
a Encourage trainees to ask questions
b Test frequently
c Maintain eye contact - this is a most important communication channel
d Discuss and correct errors; don't criticise them
e Give trainees knowledge of results as quickly as possible
Active Learning
This principle states: Trainees learn more quickly and effectively when they are actively involved
in the learning process.
The simplest expression of this idea is: We learn by doing. This applies equally to all forms of

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 33 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

training.
Rules for the training room:
a Ask questions to stimulate thought
b Plan for exercises and tests in sessions
c Use projects and assignments to supplement lessons
d Use discussion methods from time to time
e Provide plenty of practical work
Warning
Beware of note taking as a form of Active Learning - the student's fingers may be active - but not
their brains.
Reinforcement
This principle states: Learning which is rewarded is more likely to be retained.
Of course this is how we train our pets and even our children.
Rules for the training room:
a When a trainee gives a right answer - tell him so
b Provide for early success in learning a new topic
c Prevent trainees from making mistakes as much as possible
NB: We will discuss this principle in more detail late in the course.
Meaningful Material
This principle states: Trainees understand (and therefore learn) material only when it is related to
their existing knowledge.
A trainee may be able to recall facts, etc., which he has committed to memory (by overlearning).
But if you want him to comprehend the material fully you must give him a frame of reference
into which he can fit these isolated bits of information so that a pattern develops in his mind.

Rules for the training room:


a. Pitch your sessions at the students level, not yours
b. Present the topic in a definite form or sequence
c. Use plenty of examples, illustrations, analogies, and anecdotes
d. Always move from the know to the unknown; that is, begin with what the student already
knows or has experience.
Don't make the mistake which one writer has described as follows:
'Many teachers plunge ahead from a starting point that many of their students have never reached
and they then proceed to teach the unknown by means of the incomprehensible'.
.

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 34 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

e. Make your material as concrete as possible, avoid abstractions


f. Find out what your trainees already know or have experienced before
Multiple Sense Learning
The principle states: Presentation methods which use two or more senses are more effective than
using one sense only.
The Chinese proverb 'one picture is worth a 1,000 words', is another way of stating this principle.
It appears that the most important senses for information and theory learning are SIGHT and
HEARING. But don't forget the others - particularly if you are teaching a physical skill.
Rules for the training room:
a Combine telling and showing - don't rely on one only
b Provide audiovisual aids for every session you give
c Make certain that you and your aids can be, and are, easily seen and heard
d I see it and hear you talk about it if you have a model as one of your aids, let the trainees
handle it as well as
Over learning
This principle states: Forgetting is reduced significantly by frequent attempts at recall of learned
material.
We have discussed how quickly forgetting sets in, and illustrates how frequent revision can help
trainees to retain larger amounts of what they have learned. This applies particularly to the
learning of factual material or 'information'.
.
Rules for the training room
a Ask frequent questions
b Provide exercises which force trainees to recall previous learning
c At the start of each session, ask trainees to summarise briefly the previous session
d Include review periods in your timetable
e Train your trainees to use overlearning during their private study
f Supply summaries of session material
Primacy And Recency
This principle states: Trainees can recall well those things they learn first and last in sequence.
'First impressions are lasting' sums up the principle of Primacy; the principle of Recency is
almost axiomatic.
Warning

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 35 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

These principles are not true under all conditions and sometimes they act against one another,
such as when our most recent impressions change or blot out our first impressions.
Rules for the training room:
a. Give a preview of the session
b. Summarise the important points of the session at the end
c. Prepare carefully what you are going to say and do during the first few minutes of the session
d. Remind trainees from time to time of the sequence in which they have learned a topic

1.23.BENEFITS OF ACTIVE AND COOPERATIVE LEARNING


1.Provides opportunities for higher order thinking as opposed to passive listening.Reinforces
listening to others and gives opportunity for immediate feedback and adjustment of thought.
Students talking together provide for input and listening. Students often have to assess the
thoughts/ideas of peers, determine whether they fit
their own, whether they disagree, or
partially agree. Students have an
opportunity to speak their ideas/thoughts for better
formulation. Some often say, I didnt think of that or Thats a different slant.
2.Promotes greater student-faculty and student-student interaction. Students assist each other in
understanding material/content. This may even help students broaden their perspectives on
issues or problems. Professors have an opportunity to move from group to group, listen and if
appropriate add comments. For some students this is the only personalization with a professor
that ever occurs. Professors may answer questions that might never be asked without the closer
interaction. Problems or misunderstandings can quickly and quietly be handled.
3. Increases student retention and limits anxiety. Students are not overloaded with information.
Students actually get time to think about, to talk about, and process information. Improves
interaction and talk (Vygotskian Constructivism) and provides opportunities for students to
think about and process the information. Time for talking and/or writing is needed to help
students make sense of what they hear before attempting to take in even more information.
4. Permits opportunities to connect the content to real life. Students are often hesitant to speak up
and offer opinions, especially in very large classes. Students can provide real life examples of the
content being discussed, thus increasing the relevancy of the learning.
5. Builds self-esteem in students. Students help each other as discussion occurs. Students are
more likely to respond to the whole class after discussing thoughts with a partner or small group.
Responses may be more carefully conceived as they try responses with each other. Students may
even discover that they understand the information because they must articulate the content to
another. Greater satisfaction with the learning experience occurs. Students make personal
connections to the content. Enjoyment of learning often leads to greater retention. Interaction
often promotes a more positive attitude toward the subject matter or course.
G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 36 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

6.Provides for improvement of social interaction skills, greater acceptance of others, and a
greater sense of community in the class - in part by addressing learning style differences.
Students may even begin to create study groups for greater learning. Students who teach or tutor
each other learn more about each other and how to better communicate information to others.
Students benefit from building group skills by working together. Not everyone will agree;
students may learn to cope with those who have differing viewpoints, OR recognize that some
problems can be very complex and not easily solved with simple responses.
7. Encourages alternative forms of assessment. Professors have greater opportunities to observe
actual processing of information, seeing the results of group projects or field experiences. The
applied projects indicate true knowledge.
8. Promotes higher levels of achievement, greater depth of thought and improved attendance.
Enjoyment of interaction and relevancy of content tend to encourage students to master the
content. When students are responsible for reading a chapter, then use or discuss the content to
create a product find that retention is greater. This often leads to improved attendance.
9. Encourages innovation in both teaching and student involvement. Technology is easily
incorporated by students and/or professors. Students may email each other, join chat
rooms, and collaborate on group
projects effectively using the technology, rather than
meeting face-to-face. Students may present projects, activities, etc. using a variety of approaches
rather than the typical paper. They have more freedom to use their own strengths in the final
product. Students may determine the form of projects and often work well beyond initial
expectations.

GETTING STARTED WITH ACTIVE TECHNIQUES


1.

Talk to faculty using active learning and get ideas from them.

2.

Observe classes where active learning is going on

3.

Attend workshops, training sessions, or seminars on how to incorporate


Active learning approaches.

4.

Read research and articles about the values and ways to use active learning.

5.

Plan carefully and start with simple approaches.

Pair work is often the easiest to begin using and has the least chance for social problems.
A worksheet in pairs is a simple way to start.
You may want to assign a reading and ask students to work together in class on a task related
to what has been read.

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 37 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

6. Ask a colleague to observe active learning lessons and give constructive criticism.
7. If students are creating products, projects, etc., be sure to provide rubrics on how you will
grade the results.

1.24.Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Development


The training department, like all other departments, will be expected to play its part in the
achievement of the organizations objectives. If trainers can demonstrate factually that they are
making a genuine contribution to the organizations goals, this can lead to an increase in both the
standing and influence of the training department within that organization. The amount of
support given by other members of the organization will rest largely on the regard they have for
the training department staff. So any activity which heightens that regard will ultimately benefit
the training function.
In order to raise the profile of the training function, the authors propose a robust framework of
evaluation that considers the organizational context in which the training takes place, and builds
evaluation into the entire training cycle, from start to finish.
The model is based on four stages or types of evaluation context, input, reactions and outcome
and is underpinned by a set of three questions, which, according to the authors, the trainer
should always bear in mind:
1. What needs to be changed?
2. What procedures are most likely to bring about this change?
3. What evidence is there that change has occurred?
The first two questions must be answered before the training begins, and the last should be
considered before the training takes place, but can only be answered afterwards. According to the
authors, it is the collection, assessment and effective use of information concerning these three
questions which constitutes evaluation.
Stage one: context what needs to be changed?
The first stage involves identifying training needs by collecting information on the current
individual and organizational context in order to draft objectives at three levels. This will provide

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Page 38 of

Tata Motors Ltd 29 April 2013-15 June 2013

solid guidance for the design of the training as well as a robust framework for evaluation posttraining. The three levels of objectives are:

Objectives
1. Ultimate: the performance issue that the organization is aiming to improve at departmental/
organizational level
2. Intermediate: changes in the behavior of the trainees that will be required in order to achieve
the ultimate objective
3. Immediate: the new knowledge, skills or attitudes that trainees should be aiming to acquire in
order to be able to change their behavior
Stage two: input what procedures are most likely to bring about change?
At this stage, the trainer considers the resources available and decides which input or method
will be most likely to achieve the objectives, e.g. coaching, training course or e-learning.
Stage three: reaction what evidence is there that change has occurred?
trainer collates feedback from the trainees on how useful they found the training. The most
commonly used method of As with the first level of Kirkpatricks evaluation model,[5] the
collating this type of information is the evaluation questionnaire or happy sheet.
Stage four: outcome what evidence is there that change has occurred?
stage involves collating and analyzing information on the effectiveness of the training in order to
improve subsequent training initiatives. The question relating to this stage (what evidence is
there that change has occurred?) can only be Often regarded as the traditional evaluation
process, this answered after the training. However, advance planning and preparation is required
to ensure that it can be answered afterwards. This means defining objectives (as in the context
stage) and constructing methods for measuring the achievement of these objectives.
There are three levels of outcome evaluation, which are defined in terms of the objectives drafted
at the context stage. These levels are similar to Kirkpatricks second, third and fourth levels, as
illustrated below:
CIRO Model
Immediate the new knowledge, skills or attitudes that

G.L.Bajaj G.r noida

Level Two what the trainees have learned, in terms of
knowledge, skills and attitude.

trainees need to acquire in order to be able to change their


behaviour.
Intermediate the changes in on-the-job behaviour that will
lead to the achievement of the ultimate objectives.

Level Three the transfer of learning, i.e. the extent to which


trainees have applied it to their job.

Ultimate improvements at departmental/organizational level, Level Four improvements at departmental/organizational level,


e.g. increased productivity, reduced costs or fewer accidents.
e.g. increased productivity, reduced costs or fewer accidents.

At the ultimate outcome level, the authors make a point that strikes a chord with many trainers
today and is at the heart of the great evaluation debate: is it possible to measure at this level?
[The ultimate outcomes] represent for the most part major departmental or organizational
objectives, so that many other members of the organization over and above the training staff will
be working towards them. When it happens that such objectives are attained it is hardly possible
to decide who, in particular, is responsible; the answer must be that many people together
contributed to their achievement. This is why it is rarely practicable to evaluate specific training
programmes at this ultimate level.

1.30.Data Analysis
Data was analysed under various parameters mentioned in the CIRO II feedback form such as

Relevance of the training

Application of the concept learnt in the job

Improvement in output and services

Change in work culture

Change in attitude

The parameters were rated on the scale of four where


4 = excellent, 3 = good, 2 = average, 1 = poor
The feedback was given both by the participants and their immediate superior.
The feedback form (CIRO II) also consisted of a suggestion/ remarks box where the participant
and their superior could write about any remarks or can give suggestions if they feel like about
the training process, methods, course content etc.
(A sample of the CIRO II feedback form is attached in this project for reference.)

1.32.Suggestions and Recommendations:-

Training in technical program should be broken into modules and each module
should have both theory and practical, giving emphasis on the latter.

The feedback form should be made available in Hindi as well as in English so that the
participant being the operators can give an authentic feedback of the training attended.

Training validation need in a regular interval.

Live examples from the organization and also from outside should be given as much as
possible for making the program much more real, authentic and motivating.

1.33.CONCLUSION:-

Measuring the effectiveness of training programs consumes valuable time and resources. As it is
known that all too well, these things are in short supply in organizations today.
Many training programs fail to deliver the expected organizational benefits. Having a wellstructured measuring system in place can help in determining where the problem lies. On a
positive note, being able to demonstrate a real and significant benefit to the organization from the
training can help in gaining more resources from important decision-makers.
It also should be considerd that the business environment is not standing still. The competitors,
technology, legislation and regulations are constantly changing. What was a successful training
program yesterday may not be a cost-effective program tomorrow. Being able to measure results
will help in adapting new circumstances.
