In an era when so many CEOs feel business would be great if only they didn’t have to manage employees, getAbstract.com recommends William J. Rothwell’s authoritative human resources classic. Its ideas converge nicely with the growing corporate requirement for a verifiable return on investment (ROI) for every activity. In the eyes of Human Performance Enhancement (HPE) experts, traditional training methods are too expensive, not very useful and too focused on behavior rather than on attaining organizational goals. Anyone who has experienced the corporate training phenomenon of "sheep-dipping" may agree that business training programs have room for improvement. This volume and its companion CD - complete with Power Point presentations - is a tremendous resource for training and human resources professionals, especially those seeking a fresh, practical approach to human performance.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to take advantage of Human Performance Enhancement (HPE);
- Why it is better than traditional training;
- How to initiate a conversion to HPE training within your organization; and
- Which HPE strategies and solutions may work for your firm.
