Training Best Practices
The purpose of this book is to collaboratively share a collection of learning/training best practices across many different organizations. For definition purposes, a best practice is something that can be replicated at multiple locations, expecting similar results; and not just something that worked well inside an organization.
We welcome you to add stories, examples, as well as documented, results-oriented best practices to this Wiki, entitled "Training Best Practices," so that others may use them to develop learning strategies at their organizations.
The initial book started as part of a Learning Lab at Training Directors Forum on June 16, 2006 in Palm Springs, California.
