Best Practice : Management and Planning Tools for Employee Development
Texas Instrument/Semiconductor Group/Military Products (TI/SG/MP) uses two fully integrated, automated systems for employee development to help employees and their supervisors identify employee skills, relate these to job responsibilities, and eliminate skill gaps. The systems are the Training and Education Management System (TEMS) and the Training and Education Planning System (TEPS).
TEMS is used for self-registration, viewing class rosters, and reviewing training histories. Employees and their supervisors utilize this system to identify courses, to bridge skill gaps, or enhance skills. They can rank courses, determine completion dates, and input a training plan into the system. Once the supervisor and employee have agreed on an individual training plan, the employee can check the system for available courses and register for the courses.
TEPS is designed for planning and can be used by employees and their supervisors to establish individual training and education plans, audit plans to completion, and discuss career paths and plans. It drives training and education schedules, performs needs analysis, and provides training profiles by responsibility. Credit for experience and previous training can be given.
These systems are also used to forecast training resource requirements, schedules, and budgets for individuals and organizations. These two systems are effective tools for providing a properly focused and planned system of training, education, and development of human resources at TI/SG/MP. They help provide TI/SG/MP employees the opportunity for career development and are central to the total quality thrust of the Semiconductor Group.
