Synopsis:

Covers all aspects of transfer of training, from research, to key roles, to the HRD manager as transfer manager.. Written for trainers by trainers, Transfer of Training is the first book on this important topic, and the practical strategies presented hold great promise for dramatically improving the return on investment of training. Transfer of Training has evolved from a professional partnership that began more than a decade ago. The authors discovered a strong mutual interest in an important subject that has received far too little attention from the managers, supervisors, and trainers of Americathe full application, on the job, of knowledge and skills gained in training.

Transfer of Training n 1: the ability of persons to effectively apply to the job the knowledge and skills they gain in off-the-job education 2: learning in one situation that facilitates learning (and therefore per formance) in subsequent similar situations 3: a development effort that induces significant new behavior on the job 4: the use of learning in the work situation 5: the maintenance of behavior; anything that maintains an acquired skill or knowledge to a performance standardExperts question the ultimate on-the-job effectiveness of employee development programs. By some estimates, corporations, nonprofit organizations, and governments spend about USD50 billion each year for human resource development (HRD) for their employees; yet studies shot that only 10 per cent of classroom learning is applies in the workplace. Today, with demands on corporate wallets coming from all sides, is any wonder that training budgets are often the first to be reducedor even eliminated? Obviously the need to increase return on investment is of increasing concern to executives, making the transfer of training a crucial issue for todays trainers.

In Transfer of Training, Mary Broad and John Newstron show why the full transfer of learned skills to the workplace is critical for the organizations growth and survival, and they present a systematic process for bringing managers and trainees into the transfer process so that the diverse workforce can benefit. They offer ways to manage the powerful role of manager of the transfer process, and they provide the tools to get this important job done: *a comprehensive summary of strategies to support transfer of training *rationale and systematic processes for managing transfer of training *a fundamental approach to improving the return on training investments..
