First published in 1967, Training for Development has been regarded as the most comprehensive work in the field of training and development. The book incorporates the authors` experiences in both industrialized and developing countries, with public and private organizations, with managers and administrators, farmers and teachers, rural development workers and members of cooperatives. The third edition of this classic work is being issued in two parts and with a new title. This, the first part, looks at the new and wider concept of training in which strategic concerns and decisions about training have moved into the boardroom. Targeted at those charged with development overall, this volume addresses developers, founders, and managers of training policy, strategy and systems. Table of Contents Preface I.
