  1. 1. What are the characteristics of a technologically enabled organization?

Answer: Technology has invaded every aspect of our lives. In the past new technologies were meet with resistance that has since subsided and in many ways have become a part of standard operating procedure in our daily lives. The business world has not escaped the advancements of technology; in fact many companies have embraced the innovations and use them to their benefit. Employees in one office can communicate with their counterparts, clients and others almost effortlessly and in real time in other offices, states, and on other continents. Olsen & Pedersen (2009) postulate that modern technology is enveloping, multifaceted and rapidly

 

  1. 2. How does an Organization acquire &disseminal knowledge?

Answer:Knowledge acquisition refers to the knowledge that a firm can try to obtain from external sources. External knowledge sources are important and one should therefore take a holistic view of the value chain (Gamble & Blackwell 2001). Sources include suppliers, competitors, partners/alliances, customers, and external experts. Communities of practice can extend well outside the firm.Knowledge acquisition is a topic that could fill books and extend well outside the knowledge management (KM) focus. For this reason, detailed descriptions of how to manage external relationships are beyond the scope of this topic. However, since KM is

  1. 3. Why do you suppose inquiry – only applications were developed instead of fully on linessystem?

Answer: The  major  factor  is  costassociated  with Participation constraint – a participation constraint determines whether relationships must involve certain entities. An example is if every department entity has a manager entity. Participation constraints can either be total or partial. A total participation constraint says that every department has a manager. A partial participation constraint says that every employee does not have to be a manager. Overlap constraint – within an ISA hierarchy, an overlap constraint determines whether or not two subclasses can contain the same entity.

Covering constraint - within an ISA hierarchy, a

Q.4. What kind of technology is least flexible? Most flexible?

 

  1. 5. How does strategic planning differ between a firm that offers services & one thatmanufacturers a product? Is there a difference in the impact of technology on strategy inany two types of firms?

Answer: Most flexible manufacturing systems are being justified on the basis that they will be able to adapt to unknown future requirements. However, this assumes that future requirements remain within the range of change envisioned by the system’s designers. When demands change beyond this range, the system becomes obsolete. For example, when the personal computer industry switched from 5.25-inch diskettes to 3.5-inch diskettes, even the

  1. 6. What kind of business activities do you think are most amenable to common systems indifferent countries?

Answer: The rapid and constant changes that are very common to today’s business environments affect not only the business itself, but also its supporting business information systems [IS].  As a result, both business processes and information systems require constant change, renovation, and adaptation to meet actual business needs.

In the development of business IS, the existence of three elements has long been recognized:  data, processes, and rules.  Whereas the first two have been integrated using the object-oriented paradigm, rules are commonly neglected and left implicit in the program code (Diaz et al., 1998).  The problem was identified in Appleton (1984) as the ‘missing link’

 

  1. 7. What kind of programs do you think are likely to make the most use of floating – pointinstructions?

Answer: The BASIC assembler, as standard, does not have any support for true floating point instructions. You have the ability to convert integers to your implementation-defined ‘floating point’ and perform basic mathematics with them (most usually fixed point), but you cannot interact with a floating point co-processor and do things the ‘native’ way. There are, however, patches which extend the things that the assembler can do – which include FP instructions.

The ARM processor can interface with up to sixteen co-processors. The ARM3 and later have virtual co-processors within the ARM to handle internal

 

  1. 8. Distinguish between computer hardware & software which most concerns a manager?

Answer: Software is a general term used to describe a collection of computer programs, procedures, and documentation that perform some task on a computer system. Practical computer systems divide software systems into three major classes: system software, programming software, and application software, although the distinction is arbitrary and often blurred. Software is an ordered sequence of instructions for changing the state of the computer hardware in a particular sequence. It is usually written in high-level programming languages that are easier and more efficient for humans to use (closer to natural language) than machine

 

  1. 9. What kind of software does a server for a local area network need to have?

Answer: A Local Area Networks connects computers together to exchange data. Apart from the computers, and other devices like printers and faxes, a LAN has to have six essential components to function.A local area network (LAN) is a group of computers and associated devices that share a common communications line or wireless link. Typically, connected devices share the resources of a single processor or server within a small geographic area (for example, within an office building). Usually, the server has applications and data storage

 

  1. 10. What is OLAP? How does it contribute to the organization?

Answer: OLAP (online analytical processing) enables a user to easily and selectively extract and view data from different points-of-view. OLAP (online analytical processing) is computer processing that enables a user to easily and selectively extract and view data from different points of view. For example, a user can request that data be analyzed to display a spreadsheet showing all of a company’s beach ball products sold in Florida in the month of July, compare revenue figures with those for the same products in September, and then see a comparison of other

1) Explain in detail “Training Design Process”.

Answer: The first thing you should do in the training design process is write learning objectives. These objectives should address the specific KSAs the training is designed for. Training objectives are an integral part of the training design process because they essentially create an outline for the entire training program. A learning objective has three basic parts.The first part of the learning objective is the desired outcome. The second part of the learning objective is the conditions. Conditions outline the specific parameters under which the trainees must perform the desired outcome. The third part of the learning objective is the standards. Standards

 

2) If you had conduct needs assessment for a new job at a new plant, describe the method you woulduse.

Answer: Simply hiring and placing employees in jobs does not ensure their success. A new joinee needs to be trained for his job role. I would conduct the needs assessment for the new job at the new plant , using the following processes:

Training needs analysis process is a series of activities conducted to identify problems or other issues in the workplace, and to determine whether training is an appropriate response.The needs analysis is usually the first step taken to cause a change. This is mainly because a needs analysis specifically defines the gap between the current and the desired

 

3) What learning condition do you think is most necessary for learning to occur? Which is leastcritical? Why?

Answer: Learning is possible under certain desirable conditions. The conditions may be physical, psychological or sociological. A child is not ready to learn a particular thing in a particular time. He is to be mature for certain types of learning after specific time. For instance, a child is admitted into the school only after he is five. This is because it is found that the basic equipment of the child in terms of his mental ability, his physical fitness, his

 

4) What is repurposing? How does it affect use of new technologies in training?

Answer: Repurposing is a form of recycling that is focused on finding new uses for items that are already present in the home, rather than discarding them. The idea of repurposing can include making modifications to the items or simply finding a new ways to use the item without changing any of the physical aspects. Here are some examples of how repurposing can be used around the home to good advantage.One of the most common ways to repurpose is to make use of old clothing. This time-honored method can take several forms. One

 

5) Discuss reasons why many managers are reluctant to coach their employees.

Answer: The word “coaching” is often misused. When it is about learning new skills this is not coaching , this is “training” and managers should be able to identify with their employees which types of training suit best the candidate to achieve defined individual objectives. This is often do during annual performance reviews.Coaching is also different from “leading” and  “managing “. Managing is when you show an employee what to do or how to do a task. Managers can give the solutions to problems that cannot be solved by the employee alone like getting appropriate resources, explaining the company goals and annual objectives.

 

6) What are some potential legal issues that a trainer should consider before deciding to run anadventure learning program?

Answer: Before creating your training program, it is important for you as the trainer to do your homework and research your company’s situation thoroughly. Most employers understand that good employee training is essential for an organization’s success. Training topics may include general skills such as literacy, technical skills, orientation about the organization, as well as programs designed to prevent lawsuits, audits, and fines, such as sexual harassment training, safety training, and ethics training.

 

8) What are the three components of career motivation? What is more important? What is leastimportant? Why?

Answer:Career Motivation is usually examined among young or mid-career workers. The older worker is left alone. Unfortunately, in an environment in which the older person represents the fastest growing segment of the labor force, this critical resource is being frittered away. Examination of current practices suggests a large portion of older workers are persuaded by their employers’ actions that their careers are at an end. Alternatives to extend and increase this group’s Career motivation are discussed. Research exploring the underlying processes involved in successful mentorships has been lacking. In the present study, the roles of Career motivation explanatory

 

9) Give an example of dual career path system and explain it?

Answer:A dual career path system enables employees to remain in a technical career path or move into a management career.

Objectives of dual career path systems: To attract, retain and develop outstanding technical talent. Dual career path involve the creation of alternate advancement paths for technical and managerial employees. The primary goal of this type of development approach is to enable advancement possibilities for highly skilled technical employees who might otherwise plateau too early within their area of specialty.

 

10) What are the characteristics of an effective dual career path?

Answer:Career pathing, also called career tracking, is a process of outlining an individual career plan, usually within an organization. Career pathing is most often used as a part of management training and development, although individuals may develop their own career track, either alone, or in conjunction with a career coach.  Employees follow pre-determined steps along the career path to develop expertise in managing different types of organizational

CASE STUDY : 1

 

Evaluation is the systematic collection of descriptive and judgemental information necessary to make effective training decisions related to the selection, adoption, value and modification of various training activities. The objectives of training programs reflect numerous goals ranging from trainee progress to organizational goals. From this perspective, evaluation is an information gathering technique that cannot possible result in decisions that categorize programs as good or bad.

The history of evaluation of training programmes indicates that much more effort is necessary to acquire the information needed for the decision making process.

Q1) Explain the barriers in the Evaluation process?

Answer:Barriers: Program evaluations require funding, time and technical skills: requirements that are often perceived as diverting limited program resources from clients. Program staff are often concerned that evaluation activities will inhibit timely accessibility to services or compromise the safety of clients. Evaluation can necessitate alliances between historically separate community groups (e.g. academia, advocacy groups, service providers; Short, Hennessy, & Campbell, 1996). Mutual misperceptions regarding the goals and process of evaluation can result in adverse attitudes.

Overcoming Barriers: Collaboration is the key to successful program evaluation. In evaluation terminology, stakeholders are defined as entities or

 

 

Q2) What are the ways in which training Evaluation can make a contribution in process ofimproving training?

Answer:Evaluation is the systematic application of scientific methods to assess the design, implementation, improvement or outcomes of a program. The term “program” may include any organized action such as media campaigns, service provision, educational services, public policies, research projects, etc. Purposes for Program Evaluation

  • Demonstrate program effectiveness to funders
  • Improve the implementation and effectiveness of programs
  • Better manage limited resources

 

Q3) Explain the Evaluation models?

Answer:Evaluation Standards and Designs: Evaluation should be incorporated during the initial stages of program development. An initial step of the evaluation process is to describe the program in detail. This collaborative activity can create a mutual understanding of the program, the evaluation process, and program and evaluation terminology. Developing a program description also helps ensure that program activities and objectives are clearly defined and that the objectives can be measured. In general, the evaluation should be feasible, useful, culturally competent, ethical and accurate. Data should be collected over time using multiple

 

 

Q4) Explain the strategies of the Evaluation process?

Answer: Various types of evaluation can be used to assess different aspects or stages of program development. As terminology and definitions of evaluation types are not uniform, an effort has been made to briefly introduce a number of types here.

  • Context Evaluation:Investigating how the program operates or will operate in a particular social, political, physical and economic environment. This type of evaluation could include a community needs or organizational assessment. Sample question: What are the environmental barriers to accessing program services?
  • Formative Evaluation:Assessing needs that a new program should fulfill (Short, Hennessy, & Campbell, 1996), examining the early

CASE STUDY : 2

Work place training is a systematic approach to learning and development to improveindividual, team or organizational effectiveness. A systematic approach refers to the ideathat the training is intentional. It is being conducted to meet a perceived need. Learningand development concerns the building of expertise as a function of these systematictraining efforts. Learning outcomes can include changes in knowledge, skills or attitudes(KSA).

AN ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED INTERNATIONAL B-SCHOOL

One well established framework for organizing the important steps of training is theinstructional design model based in the instructional technology area.

Q1) Explain the term Training?

Answer:Implementation of formal training and development programs offers several potential advantages to small businesses. For example, training helps companies create pools of qualified replacements for employees who may leave or be promoted to positions of greater responsibility. It also helps ensure that companies will have the human resources needed to support business growth and expansion. Furthermore, training can enable a

 

Q2) Explain the term technology and instructional technology?

Answer:Technology is often a consequence of science and engineering — although technology as a human activity precedes the two fields. For example, science might study the flow of electrons in electrical conductors, by using already-existing tools and knowledge. This new-found knowledge may then be used by engineers to create new tools and machines, such as semiconductors, computers, and other forms of advanced technology. In this sense, scientists and engineers may both be considered technologists; the three fields are often considered

 

 

Q3) Explain the characteristics of instructional technology?

Answer:The instruction has significant role in human learning. The systematic actions which induce learning is known as instruction. The instruction stands for development of knowledge and beliefs.Instructional technology means a net work of techniques or devices employed to accomplish certain defined set of learning objectives. It implies the application of psychological and scientific principles and knowledge to instruction for

 

 

Q4) What is the importance of skill and attitude explain?

Answer:For a highly technical position, skills and experience are paramount. If you need someone who has attained a high degree of skill in a narrow, specialized area, attitude may have to take second place. For other positions, however, attitude is certainly a major deciding factor.If highly experienced applicants are scarce, but you absolutely have to have someone with their skills, you may have to live with some minor attitude quirks. If the choice is between leaving the position vacant, or employing someone you have to manage more closely, you

 

CASE STUDY : 3

The learning environment refers to the dynamics of the training process with particularemphasis on those components that support learning in the training setting and then onceback on the job. The basic foundation for instructional training programs is learning.Training procedures are based on the belief that it is possible to design an environment inwhich learning can take place. Learning is an inferred process that is not directlyobservable.Learning is an important aspect in every training.

 

Q1) Explain the term learning?

Answer: The ability to learn is one of the most outstanding human characteristics. Learning occurs continuously throughout a person’s lifetime. To define learning, it is necessary to analyze what happens to the individual. For example, an individual’s way of perceiving, thinking, feeling, and doing may change as a result of a learning experience. Thus, learning can be defined as a change in behavior as a result of experience. This can be physical and overt, or it

 

Q2) Discuss the learning outcomes in brief?

Answer:Besides the four basic levels of learning, educational psychologists have developed several additional levels. These classifications consider what is to be learned. Is it knowledge only, a change in attitude, a physical skill, or a combination of knowledge and skill? One of the more useful categorizations of learning objectives includes three domains: cognitive domain (knowledge), affective domain (attitudes, beliefs, and values), and psychomotor domain (physical skills). Each of the domains has a hierarchy of educational objectives.

The listing of the hierarchy of objectives is often

Q3) Explain the stages of learning?

Answer:Each student sees a learning situation from a different viewpoint. Each student is a unique individual whose past experiences affect readiness to learn and understanding of the requirements involved. For example, an instructor may give two aviation maintenance students the assignment of learning certain inspection procedures. One student may learn quickly and be able to competently present the assigned material. The combination of an aviation background and future goals may enable that student to realize the need and value of learning the procedures. A second student’s goal may only be to comply with the instructor’s assignment

Q4) Point out the Trainee Motivation to learn meaning and explain the term self-efficacy?

Answer:Trainee Motivation: Why are your trainees in training? What is it they are trying to achieve? These motivations have a great degree of influence over how the trainee will approach their training and, therefore, how effective their training is going to be. Yet how many of us actually consider trainee motivation and work to address it, channel it, and increase it? We may spend a lot of time optimizing our training, but what about the motivation to learn? If we provide the tools and means to learn, but ignore the motivation, then we are missing half of the

 

 

CASE STUDY : 4

Training Methods have traditionally been developed as a necessary part of bringing newhires up to speed in the organization, ensuring that individuals are technically competent intheir individual jobs, training and first line supervisors on how to manage and developingindividuals identified as having high potential for future leadership positions in theorganizations. The focus of these training efforts has been to enhance the effectiveness ofindividuals in particular jobs in an organization.

Q1) What are three different dimensions to build employee capabilities?

Answer: The three dimensions to build employee capabilities are:-

1) Moving up in the hierarchy in an organisation.

2) Moving laterally across various subfields of an occupation or functional group.

3) Moving toward the centers of influence and

Q2) Explain the term Employee Orientation in brief?

Answer: Employee orientations are a time to welcome new employees to your company. According to the University of Minnesota, employee orientation is the first step toward building a bright future and successful relationship with those beginning their employment.

Function: During an orientation, employees are presented with information about their new company. They have the chance to meet co-workers and managers, ask questions and familiarize themselves with how things get done in the organization.

Features: Orientations vary in size, depending on how many new employees there are. Employees may be asked to watch a welcome video from the

 

Q4) Discuss the term ‘Cross Training’?

Answer:Cross-training involves teaching an employee who was hired to perform one job function the skills required to perform other job functions. In the world of sports, the benefits of cross training are clear. By mixing different activities into a regular workout routine one can avoid overuse injuries, balance the development between muscle groups, and prevent boredom. The same may be said of cross-training in the workplace. Employees involved in cross-training programs become skilled at tasks outside the usual parameters of their jobs and thus become greater assets for the company while gaining knowledge and skills that benefit them personally.

Many small businesses use cross-training practices regularly, although in a less formal manner than is usually written about in business journals. When an entrepreneur starts a business and makes those first hiring decisions, he or she will naturally look for candidates who appear to possess the flexibility to handle multiple and often unrelated jobs. A welder, for example, who has taken college courses in engineering or a bookkeeper with people skills who is willing to help with human resource tasks. In a small business it is often the norm to wear more than one hat.

Cross-training programs are a way to more formally organize the process of getting employees prepared to be able to do more than a single job. These programs offer a wide variety of benefits for businesses. For example, a well-designed program can help reduce costs, improve employee morale, reduce turnover, and increase productivity. It can also give a company greater scheduling flexibility, and may even lead to operational improvements. Perhaps the most important benefit that accrues to companies that implement cross-training programs, however, is greater job satisfaction among employees. Cross-training demonstrates that the company has faith in employees’ abilities and wants to provide them with opportunities for career growth. In an age when companies are always trying to accomplish more work with fewer workers, anything that helps to motivate and retain employees can be worthwhile. Cross-trained employees often feel that their jobs have been enriched, and they are often able to contribute more to a firm by coming up with creative solutions based on drawing upon their knowledge of different company systems.

Another benefit of cross-training is increased workforce flexibility. The ability of cross-trained employees to fill in during absences, vacations, and peak demand periods can reduce the costs involved in hiring and training temporary workers or new employees.Cross-training programs may also improve the overall work atmosphere in a business, which may in turn improve the bottom line. Employees are a valuable asset in small businesses, which often must maintain only a bare bones staff in order to remain competitive. This makes it even more important to make maximum use of employees’ skills and talents. Investing in on-the-job training shows all those involved that individual career growth is a valuable and necessary part of the company’s overall growth. If employees believe they have the potential to improve within the company, they will be generally happier with their jobs and more willing to go the extra mile when needed. Employees will be more productive and feel more a part of the overall mission of the company. This usually leads to a high overall morale.

Answer :The project life cycle consists of four phases, initiation, planning, execution (including monitoring and controlling) and evaluation. The MPMM Project Management Methodology is an excellent resource for this part of the Unit. The Initiation phase begins by defining the scope, purpose, objectives, resources, deliverables, timescales and structure of the project. The next step is to develop a Business Case, including several possible solutions and a cost/benefit analysis for each.

Answer :

 

Q3 ) Explain in brief the following:

 

Preparing an RFP (request for proposal)

 

Answer : A request for proposal (RFP) is a document that an organization posts to elicit bids from potential vendors, typically for the development of a business component or system or the provision of a business service. For example, a business in the start-up phase or one moving from a paper-based system might request proposals for all the hardware, software, and user training required to establish and integrate the new system into the organization.

 

 

 

Soliciting proposals

Answer : A solicited proposal is when the customer asks for a proposal, an unsolicited proposal is when you send them a proposal they haven’t even asked for.

 

Solicited proposals are usually sent to customers who issue a “Request for Proposal” or RFP. When a customer wants something that is too complicated to pick up at the store or order from a vendor, they often write down a description of it and issue it as an RFP.
