Overview

Firmly established as a comprehensive introduction on the topic, this 6th edition provides a wide-ranging outline of the major instructional and training concepts, and their relationship to training in practice. The authors have expanded on information relating to the training environment, equipment, and strategies, as well as new material on cognitive task analysis (CTA) and a new chapter on individual training and development. Written with the newcomer to the training function in mind, it provides numerous real-life case studies to illustrate the theory. This engaging and practical book is as valuable to those who want to put their training experience into a coherent context, as it is to managers who need to understand the role that training can play.
