Traditional on-the-job training is the most common training method used by organizations however it suffers from the lack of a system and structure, which renders it inefficient and counter-productive.
Structured On-the-Job Training could meet the business objectives of an organization by focusing on key performance indicators, which could be established using the Balance Scorecard system.The benefits of this training mode could be quantified and compared with its associated costs in order to justify its use.
Further, Structured On-the-Job Training could be planned not only for technical training but also for managerial and awareness training across all job functions and levels.
Certain barriers common to most organizations in planning Structured On-the-Job Training i.e. lack of expertise and training time need to be addressed.
