From the Back Cover:

A well-educated, well-trained workforce is a competitive imperativein today's global community and as more companies embrace newtechnologies, distance training has become the fastest-growingmethod of training delivery. While implementing an emergingtechnology is difficult, integrating and institutionalizing itfully within the enterprise so that it becomes a significant factorfor achieving organizational goals is a major challenge.

Sustaining Distance Training shows organizations how to movebeyond the initial phases of setting up a distance training programto making it a part of the strategic planning process, includinginfrastructure, budget, staffing, and policy planning. The idealcompanion volume to Berge's Distance Training (with DeborahSchreiber, Jossey-Bass, 1998), Sustaining Distance Trainingexamines distance training programs in seventeen leading-edgefor-profit, nonprofit, and government organizations, including MCI,Ford, Hewlett-Packard, the Red Cross, and the Internal RevenueService. It reveals how these organizations have sustained distancetraining beyond individual or sporadic training events, integratingit across the organization as a strategic tool for meeting businesschallenges and achieving objectives.

Synthesizing these detailed case studies, Berge provides aframework that other organizations can use to move beyond projectmanagement and turn distance training into a powerful instrumentfor enterprise-wide strategic planning. One chapter, for instances,shows how Hewlett-Packard uses distance training to keep workersabreast of rapid ongoing technological changes in an extremelycompetitive business climate. Another describes how the InternalRevenue Service has integrated revolutionary organizational changeand trained employees for new jobs in a reengineered IRS. How theAmerican Red Cross employs satellite-based interactive televisionin training 1.3 million volunteers to carry out its mission isillustrated.

For any organization whose goals are more than conductingisolated or occasional distance training events, SustainingDistance Training will be an invaluable resource for integratingdistance training into the enterprise when distance training ismission critical.
