Since 1967, Training for Development has been regarded as the most comprehensive work available to professionals in the field of training and development. The authors focus on training not primarily as a source of new information, but rather as a means for changing behavior for lasting improvement on the job.
While the book is well-anchored theoretically, it is also full of practical examples. It is divided into four sections and each section contains well-researched models and illustrations on training and development. Written in a jargon-free style, it is an essential reading for those involved in training, human resource development, organizational and institutional development, and organizational behavior.
