Summary

Presents a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to developing training programs organized around the Needs-Centered model of training.

Training and Development provides students and future trainers with practical "how-to" strategies for training and for designing training programs. Rooted in contemporary instructional communication research, the book suggests that every aspect of developing a training program should be based upon trainee needs.
