Training service provided Yes
How the training service works Our training is developed collaboratively with buyer. Training planning starts with the Training Needs Analysis (TNA). The TNA assesses the target audience and their training requirements to identify what training is required and how it should be delivered. This will be tempered with the application of real-world constraints and IBM’s knowledge of conducting TNAs and delivering successful training and business change. The key features of our training approach are: Ease of use is built into the design of the user interfaces; We use a blended learning approach that combines a mix of online self-study, webinars and classroom training tailored to different staff groups, training needs, learning styles and geographical locations; A recognition of the need to deliver training at the key stages of the programme, whilst minimising time away from the business; A focus on providing users with the materials and ability to conduct training in their own time in their own location; A ‘train the trainer’ approach to enable the buyer to train users who do require face to face training and Feedback processes to measure the take-up and effectiveness of training, with fast and flexible mechanisms to update training materials and training delivery mechanisms.
