We just spoke regarding efficiency and what a truly efficient training plan is. So what is an effective training plan? How can effectiveness be ensured? Effectiveness and efficiency not the same thing. A training plan can be extremely effective, but not efficient. A good example of this would be a classroom-based training program. A great event solution for some training programs. But what about learner scheduling? Is this still a great solution when no more than three or four learners can commit to any class. Is this an effective solution? Definitely. Is it efficient? Hardly.
