In clear step-by-step methodology, McArdle answers the three most critical questions of any training program developer: how to choose content, how to teach and deliver the materials, and how to ensure it is working. From business justification - getting management to "buy into" the training intervention - to the essential remaining steps in her six-stage model (needs assessment, design, development, implementation, and evaluation), McArdle presents a structured, systems approach to planning, preparing, conducting, and evaluating training programs. She includes an extensive trainer's toolkit, checklists, and sample forms to guide you in creating educationally sound and measurable learning programs. An extensive bibliography will guide readers to other valuable resources.

This practical, how-to book helps you quickly determine business justification for your training and links it to key organizational objectives from the start. The sample lesson plans, checklists, training agreements, and questionnaires make this book a requirement for anyone designing or delivering training.

Training Design and Delivery is an excellent compendium of useful advice on the development and implementation of training programs. Geri McArdle's book will be of practical benefit not only to training professionals, but also to their clients interested in understanding the training process.

    Focused method for effective trainings

    Whether you train, manage trainers or are merely interested in the topic, this little guide offers plenty of useful information. Geri E. McArdle not only helps you understand the importance of training and what it takes to train well, she also provides a 20-step model to guide you in creating your own first-rate development program. The steps take you through six crucial areas of training, from determining if training can actually solve a problem to developing, delivering and assessing your sessions. You can use McArdle's model as a checklist for ensuring that your learning programs don't lack a crucial ingredient. Her concise book, packed with handy advice as well as useful tables and diagrams, is especially effective in defining trainers' responsibilities. However, this guide's breadth of knowledge far exceeds its depth. You may have to turn to other training resources for detailed information about a specific topic. getAbstract recommends this as an introductory guide to all that good training requires.
