Innovative Teaching Approach for Capacity Building: A Talent Management Prospective for Power Sector in Pakistan
On job training serves as one of the prime tools of staff capacity development and talent management in any public or corporate entity including the power sector distribution companies (DISCOs) in Pakistan. This DISCOs used this approach to train more than 400 officials at Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand, hoping it to improve their performance in addressing Pakistan’s power sector crisis. This paper evaluates this capacity-building intervention by gathering the perceptions of trainees and top management to understand the ways this multi-level, integrated capacity-building program enhanced the professional quality of customer services. The question that emerges in backdrop of such initiatives is whether this and other similar investments in human resource development (through effective, innovative and relevant teaching) can improve efficient services delivery. The paper presents a thematic analysis of qualitative and descriptive data collected from randomly selected participants and reviews their feedback on this question. The results suggest a thorough examination of the relationship between human development and organizational capacity-building with indicators of service quality in Pakistan's power sector.
