3 April 2016 INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIP FORUM 2015 They came. They saw. We collaborated. By Chung Woon Heng T he 2015 ITE Industry Partnership Forum was a success in reaching out to companies and enabling new industry partners to attain valuable insights to ITE s capabilities, catalyzing meaningful collaborations. Held on 20 Oct 2015 at ITE College East and attended largely by senior management from 50 companies, the participants learnt of avenues in ITE to leverage on for manpower development through schemes like Enhanced Internship and Traineeship. The Forum also provided updates on SkillsFuture initiatives and promoted skills mastery and lifelong learning in the workforce through continuing education. A showcase of ITE s technological capabilities sparked intense interest among the companies. After viewing display booths on applied innovations and industry projects, many developed by ITE in partnership with companies, some 20 companies registered their immediate interest in collaborating with ITE in various innovation projects. Novel ideas and constructive feedback were also crystallized over round table discussions hosted by ITE management staff. ITE is a lot more than just an education institution. If you want to know how ITE can help boost your business productivity, do not miss the next Industry Partnership Forum in Sep More details will be available soon.

Noel Tay has 8 years of experience in Training and Development. As one of the trainers for the Structured OJT Workshops, he constantly receives compliments and positive feedback for his insightful training sessions. SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT By Noel Tay D o you find yourself doing the same things but expecting different results? In most organisations, training and development for its employees is not a novel concept. Companies are well aware of the importance of training its people, both for the short term benefits of increasing efficiency and productivity, and long term gains in quality and engagement. However, when training outcomes are not achieving their intended purposes, Training Managers are usually faced with two options: (A) Do more of the same thing (such as increasing the frequency of the training programmes, reviewing existing programmes etc), (B) Do different things (implement new programmes and initiatives). Are these the only two choices? If this is your train of thought, then you will have committed a fallacy of thinking, known as false dilemma. This is a line of thinking where either: A or B must be true; or if A is false, then B must be true, and vice versa. In actual fact both A and B could be false and be the culprits of below par performance in your organisation. If your training programmes are not achieving its intended outcomes, perhaps there is a third option -> (C) Do the same things differently. In repeating the same process of analysing training needs, organisations are undoubtedly competent in establishing the What aspect What kind of training do the employees need to undergo? So focused is the organisation on the What that the How is often neglected. In reality, the key to the success of a training programme lies in the How - How should the training programme be implemented? By examining the How, Training Managers are exploring the third option (C) Do the same things differently. The key questions to ask when deciding on the implementation plan are: Who will be impacted by this programme? What will be the employees concerns? How can we get the employees buy-in to the programme? Why would the programme be a failure? How would the modality of a successful programme look like? If a thorough analysis with the relevant stakeholders is conducted in the implementation or review stage of a training programme, success may not be guaranteed, but at least you are not doing the same thing and still expecting different results!

7 April 2016 Page 7 BEST PRACTICE BEYOND BORDERS By Jeffrey Tan Structured training is certainly a key ingredient in helping to ensure employees carry out their tasks competently according to company requirements. ITE s Certified-On-the-Job Training Centre (COJTC) system provides a structured framework for companies to institutionalise structured training for their employees. Many companies adopting the COJTC system are able to enhance the quality of training they conduct for their employees at the workplace. Eaton Industries Pte Ltd (Hydraulics Group) Singapore is a COJTC. PT Fluid Sciences Batam, the Indonesian subsidiary of Eaton Industries Pte Ltd (Aerospace Group), regards training as the competitive edge towards operational efficiency and believes in the merits of the COJTC system. They applied to become an International COJTC with ITE in the last quarter of A site audit was conducted by ITE and PT Fluid Sciences Batam has been approved as an International COJTC since 1 Dec We congratulate PT Fluid Sciences Batam on this achievement. Yes! Best practice can indeed be applied beyond borders for the COJTC scheme.
