Learning and Performance : A Systemic Model for Analysing Needs and Evaluating Training (Hardcover)
about this item
Changing work roles, greater emphasis on individual autonomy, the growing importance of relationships, the complexity of many businesses; all these things call into question the prevailing approach to training needs analysis and evaluation, which still tends to be based on a simple gap analysis between job requirements and an employee's knowledge and skills.
Bryan Hopkins' Learning and Performance takes a systemic approach to workplace performance, training needs and the basis on which we can analyse them and evaluate the subsequent training.
The author's approach offers a model for HR and Training Departments that is relevant and sufficiently sophisticated for today's workplaces. As with all his books, Bryan Hopkins combines a complete understanding of learning and organizational theory with pragmatic examples, ensuring a book that will be read and applied in equal measure.
