to add to de above comments ....
the jd can be partly ascertained by Training needs analysis....(very industry specific)..
since your talking about a retail industry....find out what is the target audience, manpower hours required , type of training etc,,,,
1s you have all this in place will be easier to prepare a JD or KRA..even...

Responsibility:To Let the people changed by yr training
Attributes of a good persuader and one with skills to let the people realise....something..
In fact we cant train a person if an urge from within is not there...rest any good book on training have many pages to inform..

Dear Deepak,

While many participants have put forth their views. In the last 3+ years I have dealt with 100+ HR/Training managers. I found that:

a) they are unable to prepare objectives of the training programme on their own (without doing some copy and paste job from Google). It is their duty to prepare the objectives whether training is in-sourced or outsourced.

b) they do not know how to assess the training vendor (a GM (HR) who had worked in reputed 5-star hotel chain for a long time holds this post of reputed healthcare group. When I discussed training matters with him, he told me to provide copies of my PPt and then he would consider my selection!)

c) they did not conduct any training programme on their own. Therefore, they are just unable to understand how much syllabus can be covered in a day (0930 to 1730 hours) (I have seen training managers asking me to do in a day what would require seven days).

d) they do not understand commercial aspects of business (any training programme programme has to be linked to the revenue leakage or revenue generation. They do not have iota of knowledge of this).

Thanks and regards,
