Product description

From the Back Cover

Training Programs Proven by Anderson Consulting and Others to Excite Your Workers! "Everyone wants learning to be their competitive advantage. Roger Schank knows how to design it."

-Julie Anixter, Vice President, Training and Learning Systems, Anixter, Inc. The majority of today's corporate training programs are weak, ineffective, costly, and hated by the employees they are supposed to train. Worst of all, they are boring. Visionary educator Roger Schank has a better way, one that has produced exceptional performance increases throughout all levels of employees. In Virtual Learning: A Revolutionary Approach to Building a Highly Skilled Workforce, this world-renowned professor and consultant demonstrates his "learning by doing" programs through actual examples and entertaining case histories. Schank's computer simulation and role-playing scenario methods have helped companies as diverse as Andersen Consulting, Ameritech, AT&T, Target, and Bennigan's to:

Save training expense, not to mention the incalculable cost of poorly-trained employees; Use exciting computer-based training to escape "read and memorize" programs of the past;

Teach employees to make discoveries on their own, and train themselves; Allow employees to fail in training exercises, and learn from those failures; Broaden training goals and objectives to keep from limiting what is learned; Let Roger Schank's Virtual Learning give you a head start on tomorrow's computerized employee training procedures, raise your staff's product knowledge and excitement to new levels, and get a jump on your competition in today's ultra-competitive marketplace.
