Without continued learning and professional development, a firm can become stagnant and stale. Employees can feel stunted in their professional growth and seek opportunities elsewhere. Most firm leaders understand this on some level and recognize the value of a dynamic, effective training program for their managers, technical professionals, and administrative staff. The problem is that many of these same leaders are stumped when it comes to developing an efficient, workable process for ensuring that the company provides sufficient training to its employees.
A/E Training & Development Cookbook will show firm leaders how to measure success in training programs, how to motivate their staff to participate in training and development, how to efficiently implement and coordinate their training and development program, and how others have successfully created a "training and development culture" in their firms. It will also give them insight into the type of training their firm should seek and where or how they might find it. As an A/E firm principal, manager, or human resources professional, you may struggle with the same dilemma about training that many of us do with vitamins in our diets; we know training is necessary, but we’re not sure how and where to get it, what kinds are best, and how much is the right amount.
A/E Training & Development Cookbook won’t help you eat healthier, but it will fill you up with strategies, ideas, and examples that can help your firm do a better job of nourishing the need for better, more efficient, and more effective training and staff development.
