A comparative study of Training &


Development Practices between
Shaukat Khanum and Agha Khan

Introduction of the Project


My project A comparative study of Training & Development Practices is an effort to
explore the nature of training and development programs of given organizations from
same sectors. Organizations want everyone who works for them to reach their full
potential by developing skills through wide range of career progression and professional
development opportunities. Every organization, whether it is a multinational, private
business, government offices, etc. depend on its people. These people must be trained
and kept motivated, offered good working environment and must be acknowledged at
work. In this definition, training about quality improvement aims to create an ethos of
continuous reflection and a commitment to ongoing improvement. Training and
development practices aim to provide practitioners and managers with the skills and
knowledge needed to assess the performance of healthcare and individual and
population needs, to understand the gaps between current activities and best practice
and to have the tools and confidence to develop activities to reduce these gaps
Training and development is the field which is concerned with organizational activity
aimed at bettering the performance of individuals and groups in organizational settings.
