Be on the cutting edge of your field! The training profession is changing dramatically, and you need to know why and how. You can spend hours each week reading all the leading training and business publications--or you can take the just-in-time approach with The 1997 ASTD Training & Performance Yearbook. Editors John Woods and James Cortada have read all the important magazines for you and have selected the year's most important articles on training and performance. The Yearbook tells you all about the industry-wide paradigm shift from training to performance improvement and it helps you keep pace with new technologies, such as multimedia training, electronic performance support tools, and training resources on the Internet. Career-boosting articles explain how to: conduct distance learning with television and telephone hookups: use training in re-engineering efforts; apply training in downsized organizations; cut training costs without reducing performance benefits. Case studies of the Mirage Resort in Las Vegas, Unisys, Amoco, and other corporations show how they have generated major performance improvements. The Yearbook is also packed with key reference information every trainer should have at their fingertips. There's an annotated directory of important training-related Internet sites, a bibliography of current articles and books, a review of key professional organizations, a calendar of major 1997 conferences and conventions, and much more. The 1997 ASTD Training & Performance Yearbook is the one resource you need to keep up with the cutting edge of training and performance consulting.
