Development Programmes

The learning of skills and the acquisition of confidence require the use of specialised techniques over and above the understanding of knowledge. The diagram below shows the steps involved in bringing people to competence.

their ability to perform

Give staff the opportunity to perform


Correctly designed training and development programmes incorporate these techniques seamlessly so that learners emerge from the process fully enabled to perform as required by the organisation.

In PITHON, we use highly experienced practitioners who are professionally qualified in training and development design. The use of qualified designers ensures that the solutions we propose are instructionally sound to achieve the knowledge, skills, fluency and confidence required by the learner. In this way, client businesses gain profits through improved sales, higher quality business relationships, improved processes, smoother change and reduced costs.

When combined with our consultancy services, clients can ensure that the working environment is also evolved so as to provide the opportunity for people to perform at new levels of competence. When people development and the working environment are in harmony, people will be able to contribute measurably to the business performance of the organisation.
