I have experienced on-the-job training and I have learned a lot from such a training process.
Gagne-Briggs’s nine events were incorporated into the training. The training gained my attention and the attention of other trainees and it potentially informed the trainees of the objectives of the entire training process. The training was designed in such a way that it stimulated the recall of prior learning. It was thorough in presenting the content and the training also provided learning guidance in a thorough manner (“Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction”, n.d. ). Moreover, the training provided the needed instructional support along with varied learning strategies (“Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction”, n.d.). The training was performed using examples and non-examples and it did provide case studies, analogies, visual images and metaphors to make the trainees explicitly understand the content (“Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction”, n.d.). Furthermore, the training elicited the level of performance (“Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction”, n.d.). It had also been observed that the on-the-job training facilitated learners’ elaboration and it helped the learners to integrate new knowledge (“Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction”, n.d.). Moreover, throughout the training period feedback was provided including confirmatory feedback, corrective and remedial feedback, informative feedback, and analytical feedback (“Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction”, n.d.). Also, the training was apt in assessing the performance of the trainees. Finally, I must say that the training program motivated me to retain my job.

a. Trainees would learn how to cope with diversity and manage the same.
b. Trainees would learn how to promote and sustain diversity within an organization.
The concerned learning objectives would ensure that the training goal is achieved. This is primarily because; the training is meant for promoting organizational diversity and diversity management (I-TECH, 2010). And hence, if trainees become acquainted with the processes of diversity promotion and management then the entire training process would inevitably be a success in the long-run.
The tool would be very much helpful for TD professional. This is primarily because it helps in the enhancement of certain skills including organization skill, time management skill, collaboration skill, interpersonal skill, people skill etc. This claim should be supported by citing the fact that a TD professional would be greatly benefitted by the usage of the tool because it would help him/her in the process of understanding the importance of critical decision making in times of crises. The importance of listening and its relationship to task completion should also be promoted by the tool and this promotion would help the TD professional in a thorough manner.
