Skills diagnostic tools

Whilst training should secure a lasting improvement in capability the reality is that most training dollars are wasted. This is because either the actual training needs of each individual have not been properly identified or because the training is not effective in creating new behaviours in the workplace.

PMMS offer three ways of idenifying appropriate interventions;
