Technical Training Basics

Book Description

Technical training involves teaching specialized complex tasks and work; and is considered "the other side of the coin" to those soft skills training sessions like leadership development and interpersonal skills. Building effective technical training and managing these programs requires "hard" skills appraisal, teamwork, and solid instructional design supported by subject matter expert (SME) input. This new title from ASTD follows the successful Training Basics methodology of instructing novice practitioners on best practice in a specific topic area—in this case—Technical Training. Readers will learn how to create and launch successful technical training programs, work productively with SMEs, as well as resolve many of the common technical training program challenges.
