When we are going through tough economic times, organizations search for areas to reduce costs. Unfortunately, many will experience a reduction in the training budget. Working with limited resources, we are faced with the dilemma of how to effectively allocate the funds we receive for training and development initiatives in an effort to provide continuous knowledge to our employees. How do you maintain a competitive edge when the money isn’t flowing?

After attending this webcast, you will be able to:

· Assess internal and external environmental factors that influence training requirements within organizations.

· Use problem-solving skills to design and develop cost-effective training options.

· Understand the importance of a holistic approach to learning in the workplace, especially in times of shrinking budgets.
