About This Course:

How to Manage Training: Facilitating Workplace Learning for High Performance grew out of AMA's commitment to provide managers with new tools to advance their careers as they refocus or expand their managerial talents to facilitate workplace learning. In this course, managers from all kinds of backgrounds gain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to create and sustain a successful environment for learning, a key factor in achieving competitive advantage in today's business climate.

This course is designed to help you learn–efficiently and effectively–to manage the various tasks associated with being in charge of training. The material is organized in six chapters, each representing a particular role: those of champion, builder, performance consultant, supporter, administrator, and budget keeper. You learn the basics of the roles and responsibilities of training– for your own organization or department or for the entire company. You build on those interpersonal skills and managerial competencies you already possess that are the characteristics of a true learning leader. How to Manage Training: Facilitating Workplace Learning for High Performance includes specific objectives to guide your own learning, useful graphic elements and models to help you when you perform the role of trainer, examples of things that work, clear and explanatory narrative text, and multiple-choice test questions to help you assess what you don't know as well as verify what you've learned.

How to Manage Training: Facilitating Workplace Learning for High Performance by Carolyn Nilson is a companion course to How to Train Employees: A Guide for Managers by Bobette Hayes Williamson.
