Lombardo, Cynthia A.
Training and Development Journal, v43 n12 p60-64 Dec 1989
Thirty-five training managers in central Ohio were interviewed about their use of cost-benefit analysis. Incentives for its use are justifying and marketing training programs, acquiring resources, setting priorities, and increasing management support. Disadvantages include difficulty of quantifying training effects, subjectivity, cost, and difficulty of quantifying management skills. (SK)
