Presented in part 1 are the following: seven questions to help managers determine whether their workers are continuously learning and transforming themselves to solve new problems and achieve new goals; overview of the findings of the 1993 report of the Vice President's National Performance Review; and examples of the results of a commitment to workforce learning in the private sector. The following strategies for getting better results from training are discussed in part 2: eliminate barriers; set up individual and organizational learning strategies; get strategically aligned; and make a plan. The following ways of getting support for HRD activities are examined in part 3: look to employees for support; look to executive leaders for support; look to HRD offices for support; use outsourcing and collaboration; use the ideas of others; and keep an eye on the future.
