Training Myths: False Beliefs that Limit the Efficiency and Effectiveness of Training Solutions, Part 1
Hannum, Wallace
Performance Improvement, v48 n2 p26-30 Feb 2009
This article questions commonly held beliefs about training as a component of performance improvement solutions. Rather than being based on theoretical and empirical support, many beliefs about training are based on little more than myth. Part 1 of this article presents myths about the relationship of training and performance and myths about determining training content. Training fails when the performance problem is caused by something other than a lack of knowledge or skill. And it is compromised when we fail to include only the essential content.
