Dominos pizzeria is interested in a CD-ROM training program, that will involve the proper preparation of the dough and how to properly roll out a pizza. The major question is how can they measure whether CD-ROM training is more successful on the job training. “Companies invest on training because learning creates knowledge; often, it is this knowledge that distinguishes successful companies and employees” (Noe pg. 217) Companies spend millions of dollars training and developing people. According to the 2017 training industry report “small business average $1886.00 per employee”. I believe that technology is the future however on certain jobs it can not be the only training, especially when it refers to manual labor. I believe it should be a combination of both. However one thing that many companies struggle with is when the developing program is managed by different departments. “The problem becomes worse when each group uses its own set of tools and technology without planning how to share data and information with the others.” (Hunt pg. 258) I believe everyone learns differently and while some people might learn well by simply observing others need to be able to actually do the job. In my experience especially when it comes to cooking people needs to be able to be hands-on, I believe a combination of both will work well do the virtual training first in order to gain knowledge but at the end, people should be able to have a trainer that will show them how to use the equipment and follow recipes. “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”(Proverbs 22:6 ESV) Training people is very important in having the right method and the right people will make all the difference in the world.
