This book was written for people who have been given the task of training others but do not have a background in education. You will be provided information and knowledge to ensure your training will meet the needs of adult learners, and deliver impact and value for your organization.


Corporate training is always provided to ensure employees have the knowledge and skill to be successful in their role and move the company ahead in achieving their strategic objectives. The gap in knowledge and skills, when closed, will ensure value and impact to the organization. You will be shown how course design and delivery can align to the needs of the company, and how to keep the focus of the training on meeting the business need and objectives. You will be provided best practice and a bit of theory in easy to understand language to apply to your delivery technique that will ensure you will be successful and well received by the participants. You will be equipped to make both good training design decisions, to evaluate the transfer of knowledge and skill to the learners, and make on-the-spot delivery decisions in response to learner needs to ensure the learners leave the training with the required knowledge and skills. Between aligning the course to the business need, and applying fundamental adult education strategies, you can ensure successful and impactful training.
