Learning & Development in Organisations: Strategy, Evidence and PracticeLearning & Development in Organisations: Strategy, Evidence and Practice

ON-THE-JOB LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT METHODS focuses on structured and informal on-the-job learning methods and the different methods that can be used in organisations. 


The authors provide a detailed evaluation of structured on-the-job training methods, such as job construction training, development discussion and planning, job performance aids, job shadowing, internships and apprenticeships. 


They then focus on informal on-the-job L&D methods, such as learning through observation, learning from mistakes and learning through day-to-day experiences. 


This ebook also gives more detailed consideration to blended learning and the 70:20:10 model and concludes with a discussion of when on-the-job methods are appropriate.
