Hands-On Training: A Simple and Effective Method for on the Job Training

Front Cover
Berrett-Koehler Publishers, Jul 1, 2001 - Business & Economics - 120 pages
On-the-Job Training (OJT) is the single most used training method in organizations today. But it is also the most misused-because very few of those doing OJT are ever trained how to do it. In Hands-On Training Gary Sisson draws on his thirty-five years of experience to lay out a simple, systematic approach to OJT that can be understood and applied by anyone in any organization-- managers, line or staff supervisors, employees and both internal and external human resource and training professionals.
