Transfer of Training: Action-Packed Strategies To Ensure High Payoff from Training Investments.
Broad, Mary L.; Newstrom, John W.
This book is intended to help managers, supervisors, and employees in U.S. organizations achieve full job performance by acquiring and applying effective strategies to transfer the knowledge and skills learned in training to the workplace. The book is divided into four parts. Part 1 covers the following aspects of the groundwork of transfer of training: human resources development and the transfer problem, barriers to and management of transfer of training, and key roles and times to support transfer. The chapters included in part 2 present transfer strategies for use before, during, and after training and a special action-planning relapse prevention strategy. Part 3, which is devoted to using and supporting transfer in organizations, contains a chapter on the applications of the principles of transfer of training in organizations and a chapter on building and managing a transfer system. The first three of the five appendixes included in part 4 present strategies for managing the transfer of training, behavioral processes underlying successful transfer of training, and the steps entailed in conducting a transfer audit. The remaining two appendixes provide a 63-item glossary and a 127-item selected bibliography. A list of 64 end-of-chapter references is also included. (MN)
