Dear all,
This site has been very helpful in terms of giving specific and helpful feedback. So hope that HR fraternity will help me with the following question
What are the major MDP training programmes outsourced by Companies especially during this time of recession?
Thanking you all once again:)

Dear Anuradha,

As I see it, routine programmes will not help in the current times. The best programme is "Managing Economic Slowdown by Controlling Invisible Costs".

To tide over economic slowdown, companies have resorted to lay-offs, salary reduction et al. What is being overlooked is the revenue leakage owing to the management style of the managers. Slowdown or no slowdown, management style of the Indian managers has not changed. Managers are not even aware of what invisible expenditure is and how is it causing havoc on their revenue.

Call me on my mobile and I will tell you scores of examples of how companies incurred hefty losses. These companies are were not from manufacturing sector but post KPO/BPO types.

Report in Business Line: - There was a news item on garment and apparel sector in Business Line of 26 Mar 2009. The news has given statistics of US import on garment and apparel. It shows that there is no reduction in demand from US. We are witnessing weak demand because other smaller countries like Bangla Desh, Vietnam etc have humbled us badly. Though India's export have declined considerably, their exports have increased!

Why we are not able to do what Bangla Desh or Vietnam is able to do? Is it just low wages? No it is much more than that.

This is where exactly training to the managers comes in picture. We have been training managers on their body language or leadership all along and in spite of that we are not in position to compete with other small Asian countries. What is happening to garment sector today may happen tomorrow in any sector.

Managers today need to have broader awareness. Most of the trainers do not look beyond building skill factors. What we need today is giving insight to the participant our standing vis-a-vis other countries.

The other programmes that I recommend are:

a) Strategic Decision making Skills
b) Analytical and Problem Solving Skills (there are total 13 tools for lower level and 4 for higher level)
c) Conflict Handling Skills (managers should not just stop at avoding dysfunction conflict but they should be able to create functional conflict too)

To know about my training activities, <link outdated-removed> to visit my blog.
