Definition of training:


According to Edwin Flippo, training is “the act of increasing the knowledge and skill of an employee for doing a particular job.”


Training may be defined as “a planned programme designed to improve performance and to being about measurable changes in technical knowledge and skills of employees for doing a particular job.”


A formal definition of training is, “it is an attempt to improve current or future employee performance by increasing an employee’s ability to perform through learning, usually by changing the employee’s attitude or increasing his or her skills and knowledge. The need for training is determined by the employee’s performance deficiency, computed as follows:

Training need = standard performance – actual performance.
