Real World Training Design: Navigating Common Constraints for Exceptional Results Paperback – May 16, 2012
Enhance your purchase
Are you a learning and development professional responsible for creating training programs for your organization? If so, you probably know that every training project faces the constraints of time, cost, and quality. Real World Training Design employs the time-tested ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation) model as a starting point in giving you the tools and knowledge you need to implement your training goals. In Real World Training Design, you will learn how to assess the needs training of your company, how to design a program that meets your criteria you face, how to develop the program efficiently and cost-effectively, how to implement your training protocol, and how to evaluate the results of your work so you can demonstrate the benefits and return-on-investment of your plan. Separating Real World Training Design from the rest of the training manual pack is its recognition that real-world challenges and opportunities are part of the process of developing every training program. Rather than gloss over the potential difficulties faced by trainers, managers, and other L&D staff, this book explores and addresses these issues head on, and offers creative and pragmatic advice on how to overcome these obstacles. In addition to an in-depth analysis of the ADDIE protocol and coverage of the potential pitfalls you may encounter, Real World Training Design also delivers useful tools, detailed templates, well-researched case studies, and a list of additional resources to help you create truly productive and cost-effective training programs. Real World Training Design is a tremendously valuable arrow in the quiver of every professional who is involved with the design, implementation, maintenance, and evaluation of personnel development tools.

Labin's Book is a true must read for anyone in the world of training design, whether a formal instructional designer, an internal employee who has been tasked with building a training, or an external consultant contracted to get build a training project on time and under budget. Her real-world experience leads to amazing advice, and lends her the freedom to be creatively funny about a sometimes stressful undertaking. Not one was the book chock full of useful information and solutions, but it was an enjoyable read as well. The length is perfect - it didn't take 3 weeks of "studying" to get through. I didn't feel like I was in school again, but instead felt like I was learning amazing tips from a colleague in the field. Thanks Jenn! You nailed it!

I recently became an ISD and, although I have graphic design and classroom teaching experience, I have no formal Instructional Systems Design textbook knowledge. This book was such an easy read in terms of flow and functionality. There was humor, real life stories/advice and a well laid out journey through the ever-popular ADDIE process. Jenn created the first text book I have ever read cover to cover while still preserving the helpful reference book qualities. I hope to keep a copy of this book by my side as I better myself as an ISD and use it as a reference through each project I complete. Thanks Jenn for such a wonderfully written book!

This book is a must-have resource for trainers, training managers, and instructional designers. One page after the other contains fruitful information to streamline the training design process and do so successfully under real-world conditions. And the author follows her own guidelines in learning styles incorporating effective visuals, graphics, and whitespace for writing notes. It's very rare that I dog-ear and tab almost every page of a book. This book will be a resource I reference for every training project.

What a great book! It's a wonderful contrast to books on training theory. This book targets the pain points and hurdles instructional designers face in the real world. It's written in a fresh, easy-to-read style, which is a big help for people like me, who don't want anything too "challenging" after a long day of work. I just think it's a must for anyone trying to help modern learners. Love it.

When the initial flip through a new book stops you on a page that makes you burst out laughing - its gonna be a good read! Incredibly engaging graphics and illustrations! This handbook takes the classic process and brings it up-to-date with examples and tips. Labin provides succinct and helpful tools through-out the ISD process to reduce costs and time while maximizing learning and meeting business objectives. QCs provide background and additional resource links.

Jenn Labin's book Real World Training Design does a terrific job of fusing the academics of the ADDIE model with the reality of corporate America. I use the book as a resource at work, project by project. This is an easy read and a valuable addition to your training library!
