Meanwhile, companies consistently claim their employees are trained and they can prove it by presenting stacks of sign-in sheets from training sessions. This is the training hoax —operators are told in just a few hours about the contents of hundreds of pages of SOPs. As a result, these reportedly trained professionals can’t possibly have learned the material and have little recollection of procedures or knowledge of how to handle deviations, resulting in defects, recalls and other product problems that cost companies untold billions of dollars. Unfortunately, GMP trainers are often expected to do just that — create a training course, get everyone’s signature on the training sign-in sheet and hope that people will work differently. For training to be truly effective, organizations must move from a training environment to a learning environment. Speaker Ginette M. Collazo Ph.D, President, Ginette M. Collazo, Inc.
