Are you up to speed on the new directions in training and development? The digital age is infiltrating the training profession faster than most of us can stay breast of it. "Beyond the Podium", winner of the ISPI Book Award, will get you up to speed while also refreshing your understanding of the fundamentals. With a focus on the questions you're asking, Rossett and Sheldon open your eyes to the possibilities that are emerging - or already exist - as organizations move into new technologies and performance improvement. They examine the opportunities presented by e-learning, informal learning, independent learning, knowledge management, globalization, object-oriented design, wireless technologies, and more; while revisiting what makes great training, how to do an analysis, and evaluation strategies and tools. In "Beyond the Podium", Rossett and Sheldon redefine the nature and function of training and trainers as they offer: a tour of the possibilities; a guide to professional development; a focus on the questions you and others have; a wealth of featured interviews with experts in the field; varied and rich examples.
"Beyond the Podium" will challenge, teach, excite, and inspire you. Most importantly, it will help you envision and build for the future - and get there fast!
