Whether you train, manage trainers or are merely interested in the topic, this little guide offers plenty of useful information. Geri E. McArdle not only helps you understand the importance of training and what it takes to train well, she also provides a 20-step model to guide you in creating your own first-rate development program. The steps take you through six crucial areas of training, from determining if training can actually solve a problem to developing, delivering and assessing your sessions. You can use McArdle’s model as a checklist for ensuring that your learning programs don’t lack a crucial ingredient. Her concise book, packed with handy advice as well as useful tables and diagrams, is especially effective in defining trainers’ responsibilities. However, this guide’s breadth of knowledge far exceeds its depth. You may have to turn to other training resources for detailed information about a specific topic. getAbstract recommends this as an introductory guide to all that good training requires.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why training is vital to a company’s success
- How trainers build their credibility
- How to use the “training system model” as a 20-step checklist for effective employee education programs
