Overview

Drawing on his experience of working on investors in People with more than 50 organizations, the author describes the business benefits of developing employees through systematic communication, involvement and training. He examines the IIP national standard in detail and outlines numerous ways of meeting it, showing how to align training and development with business objectives, how to assess individual development needs and highlighting the role of managers in the process. The intensely practical text is enlivened by cartoons, checklist and real-life examples. For managers in every kind and size of business, for HRD specialists and for consultants. Norrie Gilliland's book represents the best available source of reference and guidance in an area too often regarded as complex and forbidding.
