Difference between Training and Development?..

Answer / pari

When training a 'person' the onus is on the role he/she is
performing. What I mean is when people are being TRAINED,
we’re trying to add value to specific things, such as their
job description.
When developing the focus is on the 'person' themselves.
When we develop people, we are adding value to 'everything'
the person has to offer . The onus of development is not
only to make them better in their jobs but also to become
better in their day to day life.
TRAINING people is helpful for a short time, where as
DEVELOPING people is helpful for a lifetime.

And while the result of TRAINING may be seen as changed
The result of DEVELOPMENT is definately changed LIVES.

Difference between Training and Development?..

Answer / nidhi

Training usually refers to some kind of organized (and
finite it time) event - a seminar, workshop that has a
specific beginning data and end date. It's often a group
activity, but the word training is also used to refer to
specific instruction done one on one.

Employee development, however, is a much bigger,
inclusive "thing". For example, if a manager pairs up a
relatively new employee with a more experienced employee to
help the new employee learn about the job, that's really
employee development. If a manager coaches and employee in
an ongong way, that's employee development. Or, employees
may rotate job responsibilities to learn about the jobs of
their colleagues and gain experience so they might
eventually have more promotion opportunities. That's
employee development.

In other words employee development is a broader term, that
includes training as one, and only one of its methods for
encouraging employee learning.
