Change is a given in today’s organizational life, and one way to cope successfully with this inevitability is the proper training and development of employees. The purpose of employee training is to provide the necessary skills for present tasks, while development prepares employees for the future. By investing in the training and development of employees, you are not only making an investment in today’s workforce but preparing for the future as well.
For this Discussion, review this week’s Resources. Review Chapter 9 of Human Resources Management for Public and Nonprofit Organizations. Focus on the training and development methods available to government and non-profit organizations. Identify and distinguish one training and one development method appropriate for use in your Final Project organization. Justify the use of each training and development method.

Post a brief description of one training and one development method appropriate for use in a government or non-profit organization. Explain the advantages and disadvantages of the training and development method. Justify the inclusion of each method by citing specific examples pertaining to a government or non-profit organization.
