"A Guide to Strategically Planning Training and Measuring Results"
The Office of Personnel Management this month posted a step-by-step guide
to help agencies incorporate training plans into their fiscal 2002 budgets
OPM issued "A Guide to Strategically Planning Training and Measuring
Results" to help agencies meet President Clinton's January 1999 executive
order, which directed agencies to set goals and develop performance measures
for training as part of the annual budget process. Agencies must also identify
the resources needed to meet those goals.
The OPM guide presents different approaches for agencies to integrate
training into their strategic plans, situations where training can contribute
to achieving strategic goals and ideas about how to develop a business case
for training programs.
The four-step guide is a primer in helping agencies "begin to create
long-term workforce investment strategies and plans," according to OPM.
