Overview

“Taming the Terrible Too’s of Training” is an easy to use, practical roadmap for creating workplace training that actually works--anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Offering a mix of both theory and practice, it was developed from experience in training for thousands of organizations and from analyzing extensive academic and industry research to determine what works in the digital age.

The goal is to show how to use training to create performance improvement in the most time-efficient and cost-effective way possible. To accomplish that, “Taming the Terrible Too’s of Training” does the following:

1. Identifies dysfunctional training processes that are common in organizations today.
2. Addresses the disconnect between current employee training practices and the realities of adult learning.
3. Provides research on instructional design that shows exactly how to maximize learning, retention, and transfer of knowledge in the workplace.
4. Identifies the new role for the Training & Development department in a mobile learning environment.

The methodology for accomplishing this is called “Right” learning--workforce development that addresses the right need at the right time in the right amount and with the right design.

The authors, Dan Cooper and Ken Cooper, have more than 50 combined years in the training industry. They have presented over 2,500 in-person training seminars, have appeared in hundreds of live satellite TV broadcasts, and have developed in excess of 1,000 online training programs. They have completed the transition from classroom training to nearly total online delivery using video e-learning, and have now delivered millions of cloud-based video learning programs over the web to smart phones, tablets, PCs, portable media players, route handhelds, and TVs.

The book contains short chapters, each one dealing with a single learning point. Specific to-do action steps are provided at the end of each chapter to help readers apply the new concepts immediately. Relevant research is footnoted in the text and listed in a reference section at the back of the book. A detailed index is also provided.

“Taming the Terrible Too’s of Training” is an essential reference for both training professionals and managers focused on improving workplace performance and business results.
