1. Assignment 1 -Essay
You are required to write a 2000 word essay or report in the form of a critical analysis. The work is to anlayse the impact of training and development of employees on the development of a positive, results-driven culture.
“The impacts of corporate training, development and up skilling on the creation of a positive, results-driven corporate culture” is the position you are assessing. Is it true? Does training change corporate culture and employee behavior or is this wishful thinking on the part of organizational culture experts?
The work will require at least 10 references and must lead to conclusions on your part with regard to the statement above. You are essentially critiquing and assessing this statement with the use of existing research and the application of your own view. The use of training and development theories and organizational behavior theories is expected. You can select one or more companies to base your analysis on or you may wish to approach the assignment from a generic perspective by not specifying a particular company.
