Training & Skills Development Programs

RBA offers an impressive range of training, consulting and advisory services. Our experienced consultants provide these services to a large number of organizations, both private and public. We pride ourselves on our track record and beneficial relationships with our clients.

RBA’s training programs have been developed and are continually updated, based not only on the latest international management principles and practices, but also on field research, first-hand experience, in-depth knowledge of the industry and the specific requirements of organizations.

Training Methodology

RBA relies on a variety of training and facilitation methods and techniques. Used whenever applicable, these methods are aimed at enhancing individual and group interaction while maximizing learning. Some of these methods are:

  • Brief presentations by the consultant.
  • Group debriefs.
  • Individual and team exercises.
  • One-to-one and group discussions.
  • Case studies, simulations and small projects.
  • Individual action plans (to follow up and evaluate training results).

Most Open Training Programs are held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (lunch and tea/coffee breaks included). However, some particularly In-Plant programs are more intensive with extended hours.

Open Training Programs

Open Training Programs are open to participants from any organization. These participants have the opportunity to concentrate on their learning away from the job and without the pressures of day-to-day work. Participants also benefit from sharing experiences with people from other organizations and gain a new perspective on common problems.

In-Plant

Most of the Training Programs described in this brochure can be offered as In-Plant such as to be designed to effectively and economically meet the specific needs of the client. RBA can also design and offer In-Plant programs on subjects that are not listed in this brochure.

In-Plant programs benefit the client because they:

  • Address issues specifically related to the organization.
  • Include specially designed cases and exercises, which apply to the client’s situation.
  • Enable the organization to select the proper mix of participants to ensure maximum benefit.
  • Build team spirit among the program participants.
  • Are cost effective.
  • Are flexible enough in terms of venue and timing.

In addition, RBA can design programs based on any combination of topics listed in brochure.

Action Plans and Training Follow-up

To ensure the concepts and skills introduced in our programs are duly transferred to the workplace, RBA is ready to incorporate an “action plan” section at the end of any training program. This section will constitute an integral part of the training and will be completed by the participants before the closing of the program.

If requested by the client, RBA also stands ready to design a follow-up training session and/or consult with the client to try to expedite the transfer of learning and to deal with any post-training issues which may impact the business.

Consulting & Advisory Services

RBA works with clients to help identify issues and solve problems using a systematic and creative approach. RBA’s involvement varies with the nature of the situation and the request of the client. In particular, the assignment may range from ad hoc advice on a particular problem or issue, to the design of comprehensive systems for the client as well as the evaluation and revision of existing systems.

After meeting with the client and agreeing the scope of the project, a team of specialized consultants starts working with the client’s staff. Together they collect facts and data, which they then analyze using the latest techniques to identify practical solutions. After agreeing on the solutions, they train the client’s staff, assist in the implementation and help the client achieve long lasting benefits.

The range of consulting services is wide and includes:

  • Consulting on Regulatory and Supervisory Issues
  • Training & Manpower Development
  • Structure and Processes Review/Design
  • Actuarial and Risk management Services
  • Communication Campaign Initiatives – Design and Delivery
