While I thought that the training exercise day was a fun alternative to our usual class discussion, I felt that it was a little anti-productive. My biggest criticism is that creativity was stressed and I think that was interpreted by the class as permission to implement any sort of ridiculous ideas into their plan. While it was a breath of fresh air to hear some of the humorous plans by the other groups in the class, I couldn’t help but feel bored by the more serious plans presented by some of the groups, which were in my opinion all terrific. My problem with this is that in reality, a creative training program would get the job done, and by that I mean provide adequate training to employees, and be cost efficient at the same time; many of the presentations that I enjoyed were neither of these things. What I am trying to say is that while I appreciated the entertaining ideas that my classmates came up with, I enjoyed, as well as appreciated, the realistic ideas that my classmates presented even more.
