Hi Paresh,

I believe you are looking for:

1. Different intervention designs to bring about performance improvements, and
2. Different strategies to quantify such improvements.
3. You also are looking for examples from Indian organizations. Not sure I can help with this one. By definition, any Co. with PCMM Level 3 and above should be doing it. But I don't know who all are there.
4. You are looking at these with the intention of presenting them within your organization to certain decision makers with the purpose of implementing such practices in your organization.

Did I get you right?

The subject that deals with the first 2 areas is called Human Performance Technology. Go to for some introductory ideas. They treat training as just one of several things that can be done to improve performance. Very holistic. I believe in and work in this area.

Warm wishes,
