Overview

Now in its third edition, Designing Training and Development Systems has stood as the definitive guide to creating, maintaining, and measuring training systems for more than two decades. Its success is due in large part to author William R. Tracey's far-reaching but practical approach to training--training that makes a substantial contribution to company productivity and profitability. "The system has continued to yield positive gains," reports Dr. Tracey. "It has produced better-trained personnel--employees at all levels who are more confident, flexible, responsive, and competent than their counterparts under former training and development systems...It has reduced training time and trainee attrition and has improved motivation and communication." But the role of training has undergone considerable changes in recent years. No longer just a nice-to-have option in organizations, training is now recognized as a vital part of management. And executives are no longer requesting, but demanding, that its value be proven--financially. The third edition of Designing Training and Development Systems was written to answer this demand. Thoroughly revised and updated, the book provides a complete system for the design, development, implementation, and--most important--validation of training programs. Designing Training and Development Systems covers twenty-two key topics--every element a human resources manager, trainer, or course developer needs to know to achieve outstanding training--and details how to document each area. Among many other critical topics, you'll find up-to-the-minute information on how to: identify the major challenges and issues that face training professionals, including changing demographics, economics, technological advances, shifting value systems, and new organizational concepts; understand and apply Dr. Tracey's highly effective 19-step system approach; assess training and development needs; collect and analyze job data; and create and write a cl
