Product Description

From the Back Cover

Rapid Training Development Professionals who develop training courses know that during the challenging developmental phase of the five–part Instructional Systems Design—Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation—the actual learning materials are created. The development phase is at the very heart of building a successful training program. They also know that creating learning materials can be an extremely time–consuming process. Rapid Training Development offers a much–needed resource that outlines rapid approaches and handy techniques for creating effective learning materials that get results. Written by George M. Piskurich, a leader in organizational learning, this vital book is a hands–on guide for developing training courses that can be delivered in a variety of ways—in the classroom, on–the–job–training, asynchronous and synchronous e–learning, structured mentoring or the newest mobile technologies. The book is filled with practical tips, guidelines, and shortcuts that are targeted to each of the various training delivery systems. Rapid Training Development explains what is (and what isn′t) course development and provides a wealth of general rapid course development techniques and suggestions for all types of course development. Filled with illustrative examples, the book shows how various rapid development techniques can be applied in real–life training development situations. The author explores the use of various techniques for rapid course development such as self–directed learning and performance tools. The book also includes the most current delivery system approaches such as e–learning and popular mobile technologies—podcasting and PDA–based learning. Rapid Training Development is a hands–on guide for doing it faster, doing it easier, and doing it right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Instructional Development 15 July 2009
By Ehud Zisser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Let me first say that this is the second book I've read by Mr. George M. Piskurich. The first book 'Rapid Instructional Design: Learning ID Fast and Right' is one of the best books I have read on the subject of ID. It is practical and helpful (as promised) and as an SME/training developer I could relate to the great insight, tools and advice.

This book (or booklet..176p) is a companion to rapid Id book and I would not recommend buying it if you have not read the former.

This book contains a collection of tools and advices to help you develop training for deferent types of delivery systems (like classroom, OJT, elearning etc). It is the kind of books you would refer to when you have a specific project at hand. It does not go too deeply into each type.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical advice without the jargon. 12 Oct 2013
By Viki Gossen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Many books are either written for grad students in so much detail that it is hard to find just what the point is regarding what i am trying to figure out, or they are written for people without a background in the field and ignore the theoretical basis altogether. This book has an informal delivery yet provides the context for the information. I found it easy to get to just the parts I was needing to learn more about and it clearly described the difficulty I was having with nailing down the use of rapid prototyping and explained how to make it most useful. It drew me to read more about related topics and i will use this book throughout my studies, in my current work as a corporate trainer, and in whatever comes along with my future career.
