Training Plan


Choose one of the challenges below (or one of your own) as the  focus of an HR training or development plan for a department in a health  care organization.

Possible challenges:

  • Teamwork is lacking in some functional units. Many employees are  operating as individuals in areas where teamwork is essential. Poor or  inadequate goals and objective setting seems to be a key issue.
  • There is a lack of preparation and orientation for newly hired  employees. Many are not prepared for their job within the organization  because of inadequate job-related training on company policies or  procedures.
  • Employees appear to be wasting time and working inefficiently. Time management seems to be a problem for many.
  • Burnout is a very significant issue in the organization,  especially among nursing staff. Supervisors are struggling to deal with  the issue.
  • Or choose and define a comparable challenge of your own.

Use the Capella University Library and professional or academic  resources on the Internet to research training and development  strategies for addressing human resource needs.


Prepare a training and development plan for your chosen challenge  that would be appropriate to present for executive approval. Include the  following:

  • A description of how the proposed training addresses the identified challenge within an organization of your choice.
  • A list of employee types who should be included in the training and why.
  • A detailed description of the training topics and vector  (seminar, online, conference, workshop, brown bag, et cetera). The  budget and schedule should accurately reflect this choice.
  • A budget (personnel, equipment, supplies, et cetera). Make sure to document any assumptions you make.
  • A schedule with milestones associated with content creation and training delivery.

Additional Requirements

  • APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to APA style and formatting standards.
  • Number of resources: Include a minimum of three resources.
  • Page length: 5–7 pages, not including the budget table or worksheet.
  • Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 point.
