An action planning sheet should be designed in such a way that it should encourage trainee to apply knowledge gained from the training contexts in the work environment. It should clearly state the responsibilities by including, the identified contexts, resources needed and the related activities (tasks which should be genuine, quantifiable and achievable) to be performed, deliverables, milestone to achieve, how to monitor the progress, while applying the newly learnt knowledge. This should also address in case of any probable constraints, opportunities and determine how to mitigate these. Hence, an action planning sheet (document) should have –
– Trainee’s name
– Trainer’s name
– Type of training intervention
– Manager’s name
– Details of the support team members or co-workers
– Key areas to improve upon and any distinct achievement/s
– Barriers or problems to be eliminated and approach taken
– Detailed list of tasks including systematic progress review (This should be captured in tabular or matrix form where first column should address “list of tasks to be executed” , next column should capture “responsible member’s name”, followed by column “resources used” , “date From and To”, “Any modification required”
– Duly reviewed and signed by the people involved
