Are you a learning and development professional responsible for creating training programs for your organization? If so, you probably know that every training project faces the constraints of time, cost, and quality. Real World Training Design employs the time-tested ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation) model as a starting point in giving you the tools and knowledge you need to implement your training goals.
Separating Real World Training Design from the rest of the training manual pack is its recognition that real-world challenges and opportunities are part of the process of developing every training program. Rather than gloss over the potential difficulties faced by trainers, managers, and other L&D staff, this book explores and addresses these issues head on, and offers creative and pragmatic advice on how to overcome these obstacles.
In addition to an in-depth analysis of the ADDIE protocol and coverage of the potential pitfalls you may encounter, Real World Training Design also delivers useful tools, detailed templates, well-researched case studies, and a list of additional resources to help you create truly productive and cost-effective training programs. With contributions from Elaine Biech, Trish Emerson, Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick, Jean Barbezette, Janne Rochlin, Vicki Halsey, and a foreword by Ruth Colvin Clark, this book covers the knowledge and perspectives of some of the top experts in the L&D field.
Real World Training Design is tremendously valuable for every professional who is involved with the design, implementation, maintenance, and evaluation of personnel development tools.
