Teams: Total Educational Assistance for Management Success
The TEAMS program is for organizations desiring an alternative approach to training, staff development and organizational development. There are several choices within this approach which can be customized to meet the desired level of involvement and fit with an organization’s culture. The program contains four distinct components: assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation. Components can be contracted for individually or bundled.
Assessment is a comprehensive process which may include interviews, focus groups or needs assessment surveys. A multilevel approach is utilized and begins with the executive team identifying the areas and issues which they perceive require training. This may include recommendations that have been made by a management consultant or an internal reengineering group and mandatory training regulations specific to the industry.
In designing an educational plan, whether it be as broad as a leadership development plan or a specific curriculum, Epicare elicits input from managers and employees to insure terminal objectives meet job performance expectations. During the design phase special attention is given to the desired timeline for completion to ensure a feasible plan. All curricula include goals, objectives, content outlines, references and evaluation tools.
Implementation can be performed by the Epicare staff or designated employees. Train the trainer courses can be offered to utilize front line workers as trainers, preceptors or learning partners.
Evaluation is ongoing throughout the process, however, emphasis is focused on measuring outcomes and changes in behavior. Epicare may design the tools and/or conduct the appraisal review.
The TEAMS program can be used for a single project or entire training function.
