FCW Forum: Are agencies missing the point of training?

In a column recently published on FCW.com, consultants Robert J. Guerra and Thomas Hogan suggest that the training programs associated with major acquisitions are generally ineffective. The problem, they say, is that the training requirements focus on the training process itself rather than the desired outcome (increased competence). "As usual, the solution to this dilemma rests with relevant, well-defined outcomes rather than statements of work that just define how things are done today with the outcome that we make the same mistakes we always have, only more quickly," they wrote (read the complete column here). Do you agree with this assessment?
