Shifting work patterns, constant organizational change, and a continually increasing demand for new knowledge, challenges even the most experienced training professional. Under these conditions, proven, ready-to-use resources are immensely useful. None more so than The 2006 Pfeiffer Annual: Training, which provides instant access to a wealth of knowledge about training and development, and proven tools that can be put to use with a minimum of preparation. The book is divided into four sections: Experiential Learning Activities (ELAs); Editor's Choice, Inventories, Questionnaires, and Surveys; and Articles and Discussion Resources. All the material can be freely reproduced for training purposes.
