This book is designed to fill the gap between, on the one hand, slim glossaries of training terms and, on the other, the lengthy and often jargon-ridden volumes covering an individual technique. The author, an experienced training manager, reviews the main techniques, methods and approaches currently used in training and development. He describes each one briefly, setting out its advantages and disadvantages and indicating when its use is most appropriate. The book spans the entire training/development repertoire, from the lecture method, through coaching and on-the-job training to feedback and evaluation, and includes a "guide to resources". The book is intended as an introduction for someone newly appointed to a training post, and should also appeal to line managers with an interest in, or responsibility for, the training and development of their own staff.
