2 Training Methods Today Many training methods are used by corporations today to try to empower and motivate their employees. Some of these major training methods incorporated by many firms include on the job training, case methods, role-playing, in-basket tech, management games, behavioral modeling, outdoor-oriented programs, coaching and counseling, transitory anticipatory experiences, transfers and rotations, lecture-discussion approaches, computers, virtual reality approaches and distance training, goal setting, behavior modification, and team-building. Used correctly, these training methods can help employees learn and grow, become better at their jobs, better at communication, better listeners, and more motivated individuals. Ivancevich (2010) writes, “Probably the most widely used method of training (formal and informal) is on-the-job training. It is estimated that more than 60 percent of training occurs on the job.” (Ivancevich, 2010, p. 403). On the job training, when done correctly, can be cost effective for a company, but when done incorrectly, can be highly costly for a company. If an employee is not trained correctly and breaks a machine, makes a part or piece of merchandise incorrectly, or injures him or herself due to misuse of equipment, the cost to the employer could be staggering. Case Method uses a written description of a real decision-making situation in the organization or a situation that occurred in another organization. (Ivancevich, 2010, p. 404). As Ivancevich (2010) states, “Managers are asked to study the case to identify the problems, analyze the problems for their significance, propose solutions, choose the best solution, and implement it.” (Ivancevich, 2010, p. 404). By looking at cases other companies have dealt with and the answers those companies have found to help solve their issues, managers can help solve the issues they face.
