I should say that the title does not give the impression about the value this book really has to the reader. I am in charge of managing the training function in a multinational company, and looking for how to reshape the organization in an effective and efficient way. This book contains whatever I need, both in conceptualization and in practical applications. I strongly recommend this book to all levels of training management. Thanks to J. Barbazette for creating such a book!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Edwin C. Pauzer VINE VOICE on August 9, 2014
Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a book that covers the gamut of training functions, this book is essential for sheer volume of information and as a continual reference and resource. It also contains a CD-Rom enabling the reader to download the myriad of forms, sample letters and checklists illustrated in the book, so much so that I am running out of color tabs to mark pages of interest.

Consider each chapter as a page to be tabbed: Prioritizing training responsibilities, how to hire a consultant or trainer, project management for training managers, how to manage a training staff, smoothly administer training events, select training programs and packages, and (of significant importance to me) gain support for the training functions. There are more chapters that are just as relevant and helpful.

Obviously author Jean Barbazette's mind is a library for trainers and training managers, and although I do not manage a training function, there are several strategies listed in this book that I plan to incorporate in our Instructor Development training which I am striving to make the most professional of any New York agency.

In fairness to the reader, I received this book having been selected as a winner from the author's training site. I was given a choice between this book and a few others she had written. They all looked very interesting. Neither the author nor her business "The Training Clinic" asked me to endorse this product. This review is my own decision.

I would also like to note another review about this book where the publisher claimed that it did not help her manage training. This book clearly offers tools, models, and best practices. That is a distinction for me. It gives you the wherewithal for managing training, not how to be a manager. I would not recommend it for people who have no background in training either.

For those with experience in training or who manage training, don't pass it by.

It is a gold mine.
