Overview

This scholarly book in SIOP’s Organizational Frontier series looks at research on enhancing knowledge acquisition and its application in organizations. It concentrates on training, design and delivery given the changing nature of work and organizations. Now that work is increasingly complex, there is greater emphasis on expertise and cognitive skills. Advances in technology such as computer simulations and web-based training are necessitating a more active role for the learner in the training process. In the broad context of the organization systems, this book promotes learning and development as a continuous lifelong endeavor.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Everything you want to know regarding the scientific principles for effective training interventions, principles that are leading edge, questions not previously asked let alone addressed are here in this edited book of original chapters written by the titans in our field. This book is a dream come true for doctoral students and faculty who are searching for worthy ideas in need of research." -Gary P. Latham, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto

"This is must reading and a valuable reference for researchers, students and practitioners in training, human resources, and organizational development. I was impressed by the comprehensive examination of state-of-the-art training methods, including active learning in virtual and informal contexts. Chapters by the field's leading experts review the latest research findings and show the importance of creating organizational cultures and structures for continuous individual and organizational learning...just right for understanding learning in today's high pressure, rapidly changing environment." -Manual London, College of Business, State University of New York at Stony Brook

"The editors of LEARNING, TRAINING, AND DEVELOPMENT IN ORGANIZATIONS have assembled a volume with highly respected authors who have written chapters with exciting and up-to-date content. Major sections comprehensively address issues related to the learner, the design and delivery of instruction and the organizational context in which learning and development occur. This will be required reading for graduate seminars." -James L. Farr, Pennsylvania State University
