Show moreThe team for IPRO 317 is tasked with working on developing a pervasive training program. This program will integrate various psychological and technological applications. As such the team working on this project has split into 2 groups to work on these respective applications. The idea of pervasive training addresses a dire need in the field of corporate training. This concept allows companies to put their employees through training by making them self-aware. This method of training also enables employers to train their employees with minimal disruption to productivity. Our intention is to implement this training through the employee’s hand held devices. Each employee would select a group of peer to fill out an assessment, the combination of the peer assessments, an assessment performed by the employee’s supervisor and one by the employee themselves would constitute the evaluation of employee. The employee would then receive a series of periodic e-mails to their mobile device that they would then need to respond to in order to complete this training. After a pre-designated amount of time for this training the employee will fill out a new survey and receive their results. A significant motivator for this training is that it is purely voluntary and allows the employee to receive these evaluations without their employer knowing any of the results aside from completion status. From our research team we hope to derive a set of themes by which to rate the employee as well as survey questions. What this will lead to is a group of teachable moments. These moments will be reminders for the employee based upon the results of their surveys. Once this system is derived the research team will begin a search for appropriate test organizations for us to run our trials on. While this is being done our development team will build a website to distribute and compile these surveys. This site will also send out our teachable moments and maintain this data. All of this will be done on a desktop computer that will be converted into a server. Once testing begins, this team will be responsible for assisting the test users in the survey and teaching process. These team members will provide support for any issues the users will have as well as for maintaining the website integrity during this process. Ultimately once this initial phase is done our hope is that this product will move immediately into production. Our hope is that with the success of our project this will become a new standard in the training of employees. With this being the case employers will be able to train more employees with less loss of production. Our goal is for this to be used with every employee and not just those in management.
