Rivals to Systematic Training Timothy McClernon The problem and the solution. Managers have multiple approaches to choose from in determining how best to develop their workforce and organizational performance. Systematic training is but one option among many development strategies. Advocates of training need to be fully aware of rival choices available to their internal clients as they make choices to support or not support training pro- posals.These rivals compete for limited resources such as time and budget. Better understanding these alternatives allows human resource development (HRD) professionals to participate more fully in devel- opment discussions with decision makers.This article explores these rival alternatives. Keywords: ADDIE; systematic training; alternatives to training, perfor- mance; human resources Organizational leaders believe deeply that people are important to their suc- cess. A study by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU; 1997) documented that 75% of executives ranked human performance ahead of productivity and tech- nology as a source of competitive strength. The ability to attract and retain the best people is believed by 80% to be the primary force influencing business strategy by 2010. Pfeffer’s (1994) research demonstrates how the top-five pro- ducing stocks in the market were companies in traditional industries that created a competitive advantage with people. As these firms were late entrants in highly competitive industries having low margins, the only way they could succeed was by better managing the people side of their business. To remain competitive, [organizations] must not only create a work culture that attracts good people, they must also design a human-performance environment that, in spite of potential shortages, optimizes the productivity of their workforce and its impact on the whole business.
