Training Vistas: Some Professional Concerns.
Thompson, Mark E.
The current economic climate and spirit of the times have fostered a period that will challenge trainers to be more productive and efficient with less resources at their disposal. Widespread attempts to return to the basics in such diverse areas as energy, education, religion, economics, and social philosophy have, together with the current economic uncertainties, created the need for more flexibility and creativity in trainers and training methods. Because of recent rapid technological advancement, it has become necessary for human resource development (HRD) specialists and trainers to educate management to the risks involved in not having an aggressive training education program. In addition, HRD leadership must expand its efforts to solicit insights from its staff. As professionals responsible for developing training systems within their organizations, HRD specialists must know and understand the nature and characteristics of their organizations and the prevailing social mood. On the other hand, they must approach problems as if they had no prior knowledge in order to develop a creative approach.
