The topic is vast, the science precise, and the art so innovative.

There are more similarities than differences between how artists and scientists work. Both ask countless questions. Both search in earnest for answers. Both are dedicated to reaching the best results. Not so different from today's trainers, are they?

Elaine Biech, one of the most highly regarded names in talent development, has set out to identify the perfect blend of content mastery and audience insight. The result is this highly informative book. The Art and Science of Training presents the science for learning and development, but it also emphasizes that training success lies in knowing what to do when things don't go as planned.

Discover how top facilitators always put learners first, even when faced with exceptions to the rule—the unwilling learner, the uninformed supervisor, the inappropriate delivery medium, or the unmanageable performance challenge. And learn why you must understand people, not only content, to ensure consistently exceptional learning experiences.

Science is both a body of knowledge and a process. Art is the expression of creativity and imagination. Where they intersect is the best way to help others learn and grow.

Praise for This Book

Elaine Biech has written an instant classic. The Art and Science of Training is the comprehensive authority for trainers. Not since Malcolm Knowles has someone so effectively integrated, as Elaine has, the theory, research, and practice that form the foundation of the work we do. The Art and Science of Training is evidence-based, easily accessible, and immediately useful. This is Elaine’s best book yet, and it goes on my top shelf of books to turn to when I need expert training advice. I am confident it will become your go-to resource for designing and conducting exemplary training experiences.

If only I had this when I started in the training field! It would have been my bible, my crutch, my coach, my partner. The pages would be dog-eared and highlighted with my scribbles in the margins. Elaine Biech has given us a gift.
