1- Training Application in The Field

Training To Integrate Communication Across 3 Management Levels
  • Similar curricula for field engineers, inspectors and senior staff has developed a mutual appreciation that they share similar problems.
  • Field engineers began to see that general managers and undersecretaries have much the same problems, but at a higher level.
  • Parallel training allowed all levels of participants to talk the same language in terms of problem solving...

Training Chronology (Inspectors , Field Engineer , Senior )

  • Training began with Field (district) Engineers because they were the largest group (about 190) and because of their proximity to farmers as largest water users.
  • Original training design suggested a two-day orientation for Inspectors (middle management) so they would understand and support Field Engineer training. This part of the design was postponed until field training was underway.
  • Senior staff workshops also were designed to keep upper management appraised of the training process

Training Recognition and Follow-upField engineers

  • appreciated certificates for the energy invested in their two-part training processes.
  • However, they also requested Ministry /WCU follow-up to further monitor their accomplishments as they implement training experience in the field.
