Organisations operate in an increasingly competitive environment, which drives a need for continuous employee skill development. The rapid pace of technological change requires everyone to continue learning throughout life. This book questions the effectiveness of current employee learning in most organisations and presents an alternative framework model, which is less costly and more successful. Many practical examples of successful approaches are given in a highly readable format, with many diagrams. The author has many years of practical experience as a Training Manager in a large North American engineering company; and his work on skills development there won him and his company the Glenn Martin Award as the Best Training Organisation at the 1998 World Conference on Continuing Engineering Education.
