The 2009 Pfeiffer Annual: Training (0470371420) cover image
The 2009 Pfeiffer Annual: Training offers a hands-on guide to the latest thinking and recent approaches to training and development. This year's Annual presents a "talent management" theme. The contributors address the keen competition organizations face in acquiring and retaining talented people. The Annual is divided into four sections: Experiential Learning Activities (ELAs); Editor's Choice; Inventories, Questionnaires, and Surveys; and Articles and Discussion Resources. The fourth section, Editor's Choice, includes cutting edge material that doesn't quite fit the other sections.
