Deconstructing E-Learning -
March 1, 2003 | CFO Europe Magazine | by Jason Karaian.
Advocates of web-based training have learned a big lesson: Classroom
interaction matters. "...course take-up rates plummet and drop-out rates
escalate. Not only had the novelty of E-learning worn off quickly, but
staff also complained that they missed the interaction of a classroom to
help them stay motivated.". "it's easy for "E-learning" to be reduced
to "E-reading.""

Developing an In-House Training Program
Oct. 1978 | The CPA Journal Vol. 48, Iss. 10; pg. 81 | Gayton,
Robert J. There are keys to development of a successful in-house
training program: 1. The proper environment must be established within
the firm. 2. Firm executives must be committed to development of the
program. 3. A program director must be appointed. 4. The director must
be relieved of some other duties to allow devotion of adequate time and
energies to the development program. 5. Programs should provide for an
integration of both classroom and on the job training; both are
essential. 6. Programs should be challenging to retain staff interest,
and good instructors should be chosen, preferably from within the firm.
7. A system of performance evaluation and career counseling must be
established. It is most practical to begin by establishing a limited
training program for new recruits and later expanding it to cover the
entire staff.

Corporate universities for small companies
Feb 1999 | Inc. Vol. 21, Iss. 2; pg. 95, 2 pgs | by Donna
Fenn. An increasing number of growing businesses are starting their own
universities - ongoing skill-enhancement programs that draw on both
internal and external resources to train new employees and keep veteran
ones current with a rapidly changing business environment. Companies are
now thinking of training as a strategic imperative. Employees are
keenly aware that training is essential to their future marketability
and are making career choices based on opportunities for learning.
Companies with in-house universities report several benefits, including:
1. improved recruitment, 2. increased revenues, 3. reduced turnover, 4.
better employee advancement, and 5. a wider talent pool.

Running smart
Jan/Feb 1993 | Dun & Bradstreet, Inc. D & B Reports |
Robert N Steck. Most theories about training managers have focused on
big-company managers. Yet it is often managers in smaller concerns that
most need training. Many small businesses are learning that rejuvenating
an organization is mainly a matter of teaching managers basic
principles of good business practice - always with the understanding
that there are no magic formulas. Small companies can learn from the
management-development methods of large ones. The first lesson is that
not all manager training is equally cost effective. There are 2
principles that any company should follow in manager-training programs:
1. Take orientation seriously. 2. Work to keep the training close in
both time and space to the work stations, through multimedia
presentations, for example. The process of change through training is
slow, and the recipes for renewal must be adapted to each situation.

Mar 2008 | Pharmaceutical Executive Vol. 8 pg. 15, 3 pgs | by
Marylyn Donahue. A product manager's training course can be the most
creative, innovative, and custom-designed program ever to come down the
pipeline, but it will wither on the vine without executive support and
the sponsorship of commercial-business-unit group leaders.

Small Business Link: Chip Maker Trains in the Virtual World
Apr 3, 2008 | Wall Street Journal pg. B.6 | Raymund Flandez.
At Silicon Image Inc., workers learn about making and managing the
company's silicon chips by exploring a virtual world representing its
corporate campus, and interacting with co-workers using
three-dimensional characters they control. The exercise is similar to
online games like Second Life, which allow players to inhabit and
participate in a computer-simulated environment.
