The Training Article
post # 120 — June 28, 2006 — a Managing post
Today I posted a new article on my website entitled Why (Most) Training is Useless .
If training is viewed as an integral part of making change – and not as a stand-alone activity – it can be very powerful. However, the sad truth is that the majority of business training, by me and by everyone else, is a tragic waste of time and money.
Regular readers will note that the article is an expansion of what began as a series of posts on this blog, including Why Training Is Useless , Saving the Training Baby and The Keynote Speaker Charade .
By turning the blog discussion into an article, I hope to make it easier to download and circulate the thoughts to people who might benefit from them but not otherwise encounter them. Do pass on the article to someone who could usefully consider the issues it raises.
If you would like to be emailed automatically when I add future full-length articles to the site, (or know of anyone else that would benefit) I invite you (or them) to sign up for my (free) article email list.
Finally, the training conversation is far from over. Please join in by adding your thoughts and experiences to this blogpost.
