The Evolution And Revolution Of The Teaching Machine

Stanley L. Levine | December 01, 1960 | TD Magazine Archive

Because of the growing complexity of American business and industry, the pressures upon the training director are increasing at an incredible rate. Years ago, the training member of the personnel team had to be a good instructor, a fair conference leader and informed about principles of supervision.

Does Your Organization Have A Philosophy Of Training

J. Malcolm Wright | December 01, 1960 | TD Magazine Archive

Why do some training programs fail? Why do some people fail—those in Man-agement as well as those who are not? Why do some programs, at best, result only in a minor degree of success? Why do so many employees experience only minimum satisfaction in their work? One reason may be the failure of the training or the management people to establish an organization-wide philoso-phy of training and development. In this article I present some thoughts on how an organization develops such a philosophy and how certain outside fac-tors can contribute to greater acceptance of this philosophy.

The Lecture

David S. Brown | December 01, 1960 | TD Magazine Archive

There has been growing criticism of the use of the lecture method over the past few years.

Diagnostic Testing For Industry

John E. Walsh | December 01, 1960 | TD Magazine Archive

Diagnostic testing has become a magic word to many companies who are awak-ening to the fact that blanket training of a specific employee group is some-times wasteful. As a result the incidence of diagnostic testing has increased greatly since this waste was discovered.

Liberty Bell Heralds Astd Conference

Bill Read | December 01, 1960 | TD Magazine Archive

The Liberty Bell rings out again-proclaiming the 17th Annual ASTD Conference at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel in Philadelphia on May 2,3 and 4. This is your conference, built to your specifications.

It Takes Time To Learn

M. E. Rogat | December 01, 1960 | TD Magazine Archive

Many Training Directors often forget that one of the essential elements of teaching is that learning takes time. It takes a year or two for a child to learn to say Mama and Papa and because learning does take time, it cannot be rushed.

The Good Doctor

W. B. S. Clymer | December 01, 1960 | TD Magazine Archive

I have long been impressed with the similarity between doctors and training directors. Both are called on to cure ailments of many kinds and grades.

One of the great issues in management today is the education which future businessmen receive while they are en-rolled in American schools of business.
