Book Review: Business Training

Jenny’s review of the Financial Times Guide to Business Training 2013 was published this week in Industrial and Commercial Training journal, Vol. 45  No. 7

Here’s what she thought…

I enjoyed reviewing this book and particulary appreciated the focus and attention given to the ‘business’ part of business training.  The authors have much to say about the value of linking training expressly to the outcomes and challenges of the business.  The first question they ask any client is not ‘what training do you want?’ but ‘where’s your business going in the next six months?’

We’ve taken this on board as see it as confirmation of the way in which we also like to operate.  We want to have conversations with our clients which reflect the same ideas, so that – working in partnership with them – our over-riding aim is to help to promote their business through the development of their people.
