A new Institute initiative will establish a methodology for assessing the business value of IT skills in a company. The IITT Institute's approach is based on an evaluation methodology that takes place before the training has started, rather than afterwards. Although it calls for the use of estimations and probability, this sort of upfront methodology is wholly valid. The scheme is designed to help articulate the business value of training to senior management, evaluate the options between different training programmes and approaches to skills transfer, prove the business benefit and provide a professional service to the organization. The system's built-in database also hosts the training courses of all IITT-accredited training suppliers throughout Great Britain at special discounted rates.
