This new edition of the book enlarges the scope of the previous edition. Underscoring the importance of a cohesive and synthesized approach, it brings together all interrelated aspects of the learning process. Recognizing the importance of general situations that a trainer has to handle in the delivery of the program, it identifies new situations and issues that call for action by the trainer under a section 'Role of the trainer'. An entirely new section-Using question-response approach for enhancing participation-reinforces and substantiates the concept, meaning and scope of training.
The handbook has been prepared keeping in mind the needs of training different types of groups in different settings, regardless of the nature of the groups or the themes of the training programs. It is aimed at training managers, instructors at various training and educational institutions, organizers of workshops and seminars, those responsible for planning training programs and participants. Its content as well as its reader-friendly language and style make it suitable and relevant for all levels of trainers-the experienced ones or those who are new to professional training. It is a must-read for people specializing in the fields of business and management-training, human resource development, organizational design and development-and social development.
