Talent Management - Training Needs Analysis and Development Mapping

By undertaking a training needs analysis, it is possible to identify skills gaps within the team. This can then be used to map learning and development for individuals and groups in order to schedule and deliver the blended training, coaching and experiential learning approaches, progressively enhancing the organisational capability.

Planning service
How the planning service works
We support customers with the implementation of cloud services by conducting an in-depth Training Needs Analysis (TNA) study before the implementation stage so that the customer has a clear understanding of the training that will be required when using the new service, and so can address any shortfall in capability by planning training workshops, mapping development or coaching / mentoring needs in advance of the cloud system being deployed.

As well as targeted training towards the use of specific tools, typical TNAs may identify broader organisational awareness of factors pertaining to cloud based software (e.g. cyber awareness, delivering within virtual teams) or indeed broader ‘soft skills’ required for effective programme/project delivery and for the development of high functioning teams and organisations.

By identifying these skills gaps ahead of implementation and scheduling the learning and development activities as part of a broader transformation, a more efficient and enduring transition to the new ways of working can be achieved. To help deliver this IMD can offer the option of a set of web based tools and processes which bring structure to the embedding of learning and change whilst customer teams move into their transformed business state.

Training service provided
How the training service works
As part of the Talent Management service, we are able to provide tailored training for individuals and teams to obtain PRINCE2, APMP, MSP, AGILE, ITIL, Management of Risk, cyber and information security, IT governance (and other) courses and certifications, ensuring that the best practice methods applied during the delivery of our service are adopted by staff with key skills and knowledge being retained following the completion of the contract.
Training is tied to specific services

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
Migration to, or between, cloud services will typically involve a degree of organisational change. This can manifest itself in new ways of working, differing governance models, or transition to a virtual team structure. Our Training Needs Analysis and Development Mapping offering will ensure the customer team is prepared and equipped to adapt to this change and achieve operational capability within the new environment. This may include specific training, coaching, embedding new processes, or combinations of these factors. Again, to help deliver this IMD can offer the option of a set of web based tools and processes which bring structure to the embedding of learning and change whilst customer teams move into their transformed business state.

A robust transition with Organisational Design at its core will facilitate both the local transition to cloud based services as well as creating champions, coaches/mentors and change leaders within the customer organisation for subsequent enhancements/changes and integration with other teams.

Quality assurance and performance testing

How the quality assurance and performance testing works
Our accredited training and coaching offerings include Quality Management Systems (QMS); including the design, implementation, resourcing and adoption thereof. Additionally, if the customer wishes to adopt the use of the web based tools we offer, this can gather and provide management information regarding their investment in training, and increase accountability for the development of talent within their organisation.

Support levels
For each engagement through GCloud, you will be provided with an IMD Account Manager who will be your central point of contact throughout the delivery of services. Where possible, we aim to provide you with an Account Manager who has experience operating within the relevant field associated with the engagement to coordinate the delivery of similar services. 
In addition to the Account Manager, we endeavour to provide you with an additional layer of Account Support in the form of a secondary point of contact for each engagement. In this way, we mitigate the likelihood of having a single point of failure, and have mechanisms in place to maintain continuity of service. 
Support will be provided remotely via email and phone for the most part, with the flexibility to arrange meetings on site or at our offices when needed. On site support can be offered during the working week where requests are made prior to proposals being submitted / individual call-off contracts agreed. 
Your Account Management and Support resources are typically integrated into the delivery team and so costs are included within the proposal for each engagement.
