Format: Paperback
I have no hesitation in recommending this book. What I like particularly is that it covers the key elements of the training `cycle' and focuses on practical tips and priorities in each. From the key elements of a training needs analysis through design of a training programme, delivery and then evaluating the results, this book focuses on what you need to do to create results. Rather than try to provide huge detail on each topic it provides the key things to think about for each. I have already taken lots of ideas from it that I know will be incorporated into my training programmes going forward. I like the focus on learning transfer and thinking about the wider context for training and the conversations to have with stakeholders. Already a great return on the cost of the book!

I came to this book somewhat cautiously as I'm an experienced trainer. I have read lots of books on the subject and completed numerous programmes on training and facilitation. But this book really is an impressive effort. I think it's spot on with its analysis and has some really useful practical ideas about how to really make business training stick. So many of the challenges that this book uncovers resonated deeply with me and I strongly believe that training done well can really have a positive impact in peoples' lives. The FT Guide to Business Training will certainly help the cause! It is extremely comprehensive and the free resource pack that the website offers was an unexpected but useful bonus. I would definitely recommend this book if you are in the training game.

Format: Paperback
Great book - very practical, with lots of applicable advice, but at the same time well-balanced with just enough theory to back it up. Well-written and enjoyable. I'd recommend it to anyone whose work includes personnel training and develpment. I think a professional of any level will find something useful here.

This is a great book! It covers everything you need to know from the start to finish of the training process. So far I have dipped in to read the areas that have caught my interest in the Trainer as a Performer section, and there are some really great ideas here that have got me re-thinking my approach. I can see that I will get good use from this book as there is so much here - it's a great resource for any trainer and definitely deserves its place on your book shelf.

Format: Paperback
I manage people in a construction sales business and as part of my role have to train my team. I bought this book out of curiosity to see if there were tricks I was missing . I am delighted I did as the FT Guide to Business Training really delivers. Some business books can be a little tedious - this is the opposite. Full of practical ideas and techniques which will help me train and motivate my people. Thanks Tom & Jerry - really useful and I hope it does well.

Format: Paperback
As an educatinal manager overseeing over 100 staff I regularly received and provided CPD and In Service Training....... and I wish that this concise yet comprehensive 'bible' had been available 15 years ago! I see this book as being an invaluable resource for anyone involved in providing HR support, L&D, CPD and In Service Training, and would certsinly help the next generation of business professionals to create and provide more interesting and effective training - and I'm sure that university students folowing Business, HR and even Psychology courses would find this book an excellent investment The free on-line resource pack is an added and unexpected bonus! Great book.

By Rosie on 1 May 2013
Format: Paperback
As I am considering a career in training and HR I decided to buy this book and am thrilled that I did! The FT Guide to Business Training was thoroughly comprehensive and extremely accessible to read. I found the role of training styles and the trainer as performer to be of particular interest. It bursts with practical techniques of how to structure your training. Along with the bonus of online resources, this book is like the Business Training `Bible'.
