Training and Workplace Performance Guide in New Release
Submitted by Leslie Allan on May 20th, 2008
I feel that I can now take a bit of a rest. Just this week I released the new edition of my From Training to Enhanced Workplace Performance guide. The guide and toolkit are now in their Second Edition.
If you are not familiar with the guide and toolkit, let me fill you in. The guide is intended to be a complete resource for improving the effectiveness of training programs. You see, many, many training programs have little to no impact on the performance of the sponsoring organization. In the guide, I take a systems approach to uncovering the various factors that go to make a training program effective. The core of my approach is based on my PRACTICE Model for improving the cost benefit of learning programs.
In this new edition, I have radically expanded on the PRACTICE Model and added some new sections on training delivery. Perhaps the biggest change to this new edition is the inclusion of a comprehensive set of methods and tools for demonstrating the bottom-line impact of employee training. We may work hard at improving the impact of our training, but how do we go about measuring that impact. Well, in this new edition, I include a comprehensive set of data collection forms, analysis spreadsheets and reporting templates. I wanted to include these in the pack in softcopy format so that you can customize and reuse them time after time.
So, check out the new second edition and enjoy. May all your learning programs be remembered for their impact on driving performance improvements.
