Dear all, Will any one please explain the difference between training and development. Vani
From India, Tiruchchirappalli
Well these are relative terms in HR parlance. How ever to be precise, training is one of the process to achive the development. The clinical meaning would be
a) Training is a tool/ process to acheive development.
b) Development is a change in the levels of any or all of the Human parameters in an organization;
like it could be a ) Change in the competency level, b) Change in culture c) Change in performance levels.
Hence training is a tool / process and Development is a desired result.
Kind regards

Dear vanijayendran,
Training is to practice what one has learned towards improving skill and gaining further knowledge in its application.
Human resources development in an organizational context is a process by which employees of an organization are helped in a continuous, planned way, to:
Acquire and sharpen their capabilities required to perform their present or expected future roles,
Develop their general capabilities as individuals and discover and exploit their inner potential for their own and /or organizational development purposes; and
Develop an organizational culture in which supervisor-subordinate relationship, team work and collaboration among sub units are strong and contribute to the professional well being, motivation and pride of employees.

Training is short-term process utilizing a systematic & organized procedure by which non-managerial personnel learn technical knowledge & skills for a definite purpose.
Development is long-term educational process utilizing a systematic & organized procedure by which managerial personnel learn conceptual & theoretical knowledge for general purpose.

I wonder why bloggers take the easy route of posting queries instead of searching the web, where detailed explanations are easily available.
For example see Training & Development A Part Of Hrm Studies found by Google search at Google

Training is to make one competent to perform a job as would be required.
Development is to make one master the skill learnt through training and be a multi tasking person, as I learnt the meaning of these two words.
