Training and development professionals are faced with a host of responsibilities and goals that can be met only if they integrate the latest thinking in the field with their own experience and thereby develop a new arsenal of skills and knowledge. The contributors to this volume, all of whom have extensive professional, consulting, and/or research experience in the training field, thoroughly examine the leading training issues by speaking straightforwardly to the training practitioner. These issues include the strategic linkage of training to business objectives, the determination of training needs, transfer of training, training technologies, holistic training and development, and the multiple roles of the professional trainer. The contributors provide the training and development professional with pertinent frameworks, revealing examples and real-life cases, specific recommendations, and various application ideas. References are provided throughout to support key findings, to point the reader toward the most promising and relevant training research, and to provide a comprehensive resource base that would be a valuable addition to any trainer's personal library. In addition to external and internal training professionals, students and instructors of human resource management, instructional systems technology, and industrial/organizational psychology will benefit from the contributors' insights.
In 1867 Harvey Riley was Superintendent of the government corral in Washington D C. In the preface Riley states: " There is no more useful or willing animal than the Mule. And perhaps there is no other animal so much abused, or so little cared for. Popular opinion of his nature has not been favorable; and he has had to plod and work through life against the prejudices of the ignorant. Still, he has been the great friend of man, in war and in peace serving him well and faithfully. If he could tell man what he most needed it would be kind treatment. We all know how much can be done to improve the condition and advance the comfort of this animal; and he is a true friend of humanity ho does what he can for his benefit. My object in writing this book was to do what I could toward working out a much needed reform in the breeding, care, and treatment of these animals." Riley covers such topics as breaking, breeding injuries, packing, young colts, andincludes portraits of famous mules.
