In this issue’s Training Design, Linda Miller, the president and founder of Intern Programs, Inc., offers a two-hour workshop on the timely topic of interns. In this interactive process, Miller walks participants through a series of questions to determine whether or not having an intern program is the right strategic decision for their organizations. Participants draw their own conclusions based on group discussions, peer support and material introduced by the facilitator.
As Miller demonstrates, the objective of this training exercise is for participants to develop their own customized “business case” for implementing or improving an intern program. Participants will also leave the session knowing how to facilitate a needs assessment for any process or proposed initiative that requires scrutiny within their organizations—an excellent skill to add to your toolbox!
