Case breakdown: Movie Kung Fu Panda
This Scene from the movie Kungfu Panda shows that a Panda is being trained by Master Shifu. Panda is not a conventional animal that he is training for the job. According to a certain prophecy, the panda is the next ‘dragon warrior’ and now he has to be trained. Master Shifu is hesitant in the beginning but later he starts trusting the panda. He uses his creative skills to train Panda. Learning Perspectives will explore the steps of a training process in organizations.
Training Process in any organization consists of the following steps:
The first step in any training process is Need Analysis which means identifying the specific skills and knowledge required for the job. Master Shifu (Trainer) is convinced that Panda is the Dragon Warrior and can be groomed to become one.
The second step is Instructional designing. This means formulating specific and measurable tasks, reviewing possible training program content, and estimating a budget for the training program. Master Shifu is very wise, hence the training program for the panda is customized according to his needs. It consists of dumplings and other delicacies which happen to be Panda’s weakness.
The third step is Implementing the program which means actually training the employee. In this case, training the Panda to become a Dragon Warrior.
Fourth and the final step is assessing the program’s success or failure. By the end of this scene, one can figure, that the program turned out to be successful. Master Shifu’s strategy worked. 🙂
