Everything You Ever Needed To Know About Training by Kaye Thorne and David Mackey

Reviewed by Bob Little

This book not only examines identifying, designing, delivering and evaluating training but also offers advice on how to run a training business and, especially catering for the modern fashion of outsourcing, how to ‘go it alone’. Changes in the industry are reflected in ‘e-learning’ becoming ‘blended learning’. Moreover, a new section has been added which looks at the growth in popularity of coaching in general and also outlines the role of the trainer as a personal coach.

There is the usual plethora of checklists, evaluation forms, recommended further reading and website addresses which make this book a standard reference work of particular value to anyone new to the rapidly widening world of ‘training’.
