Raymond Noe’s 'Employee training and development' sets the standard in this course area. First introduced in 1998, ETD became the market-defining text within 6 months of publication. Its popularity is due to the lively writing style and inspiring examples of the most up-to-date developments in training, research and in practice, including the strategic role of training and the use of new technologies in training. 'Employee training and development' strikes a balance between research and real company practices. It provides students with a solid background in the fundamentals of training and development including needs assessment, transfer of training, designing a learning environment, methods, and evaluation.
