IRI Seminar: In-classroom training
In-classroom training is conducted by IRI's subject matter experts. Often
such training is directed toward senior management staff and may
include the general counsel, security director, loss prevention director,
crisis management personnel, as well as operations management including
the COO or CEO, depending upon the subject.
In many cases, such training, in essence, may be categorized as “train-the-trainer” training,
as the students of such sessions often then downstream the training
to successive lower levels of management.
Training for risks that may be enterprise threatening is often conducted
in this manner.
In-classroom training to senior management, for example, is very
manageable and effective. Yet, in some cases, training to larger
groups of managers may be cost-prohibitive, inefficient, and/or ineffective.
For example, a consumer product company may suffer a product contamination
problem. Such incidents may escalate rapidly and may include personal
injury, perhaps fatalities, and may span several locations, several
states, and several countries. While many events have known causes
including intentional wrongdoing or production negligence, for example,
many such incidents may survive for long periods before root causes
are known. Crisis management training may be crucial in such circumstances.
IRI personnel have broad experience conducting
in-classroom training sessions as well as table-top exercises and
