Step 1:

Choose a scenario for your assignment:

You are a training professional in a small company and have been asked to develop a training program for one of the following three scenarios:

  1. Production in your printing area has declined. You have recently hired a number of new employees and believe that is the cause of the decline in production.
  2. Your company had a major gas leak and you discovered the response to the leak was chaotic and not well organized. As a result, two of your employees were injured.
  3. It has come to your attention that you are having retention issues in your circulation area. Four employees have quit in the last month and they all worked for the same manager.

Step 2:

Prepare a 15-20 page (not including the cover page and reference page) paper to be used when presenting your plan to the general manager.  Keep in mind, the manager knows nothing about training and wants a solution that is both quick and responsive.  The assignment has the following deliverables.
