Learning Performance by Hopkins Bryan
Changing work roles greater emphasis on individual autonomy the growing importance of relationships the complexity of many businesses; all these things call into question the prevailing approach to training needs analysis and evaluation which still tends to be based on a simple gap analysis between job requirements and an employee's knowledge and skills. Bryan Hopkins's Learning and Performance takes a systemic approach to workplace performance training needs and the basis on which we can analyse them and evaluate the subsequent training. The author's approach offers a model for HR and training departments that is relevant and sufficiently sophisticated for today's workplaces. As with all his books Bryan Hopkins combines a complete understanding of learning and organisational theory with pragmatic examples ensuring a book that will be read and applied in equal measure.
