An alternative method to level the knowledge base across different layers is devised as “Structured Development Program – SDP”.

Session mainly covered basic training essentialities in regards to training domain, delivery and presentation. It is not wrong to say that trainees’ enthusiasm and positive energy made the session interesting whereas several individual and group activities added to the purpose.
Training was followed by assessment to analyze the results of training session through well known “Kirkpatrick’s model”, 1st assessment was carried out at the end of training session to check reaction and learning percentage of trainees followed by 2nd assessment after 10 days of training to check their retained learning percentage resulting “67” qualified trainees across the network.
Thus, qualified trainees were awarded in the month of August with “Certificate of Merit” by their respective zonal heads followed by small ceremony in each zone.
A well-trained group of 67 subject matter experts is now getting engaged to close the ever-widening skills gap at all the levels in organization which will eventually help organization improve performance and grow organically.
