How Does Training Effect The Success Of A Business

Charles Johnston | March 01, 1949 | TD Magazine Archive

The end objective of training should be the conservation and full utilization of human energy, materials, and tools, in the produc-tion of saleable goods of quality at the lowest cost and in sufficient quantity to compete in the open market and realize the maximum profit in order to pay the cost of doing busi-ness and pay wages and salaries. The cost of doing business involves the pay-ment of interest on borrowed money, liquida-tion of borrowed capital, payment of fixed charges, deposits in a reserve fund to provide for replacements and expansion, the purchase of raw materials.

March 01, 1949 | TD Magazine Archive

Those of us who attended the Fifth Annual Convention of the American Society of Training Directors at the Carter Hotel, Cleveland, Ohio, March 3, 4 and 5, 1949, went away entertaining the general concept that Fred "Doc" LaiTer and his Host Chapter Committee accomplished an excellent job.

Evaluating Personnel

John C. Flanagan | March 01, 1949 | TD Magazine Archive

Attacking Supervisory Training Problems

R. G. Greiner | January 01, 1949 | TD Magazine Archive

We have come a long way and made a great deal of progress in the past ten years in gear-ing training to the times. When I think of the tremendous training problem which faced us at the outset of the war, I am still amazed at the results which were accomplished under the circumstances.

College, at College-Station, and Texas University, at Austin.
