First Things Fast
Allison’s first edition won awards. Check out the new and improved second edition.
Annual studies by ASTD and Trainingmagazine confirm the slow and steady trend away from classroom delivery and towards more technological and independent approaches. Blended approaches are increasingly favored, resulting in programs that include face-to-face events, augmented by on demand assets, social media and independent choice. That choice can be tricky. Will participants stay or will they stray? We know they will stay if the program delivers value to them, lots of it, appropriate for the time invested. The best way to assure that value is through analysis. You can find First Things Fast at Pfeiffer Publishing.
Job Aids and Performance Support
“What is performance support? Rossett and co-author Lisa Schafer define it this way: A helper in life and work, performance support is a repository for information, processes, and perspectives that inform and guide planning and action.”
Allison Rossett’s practical and provocative book advances the shift from knowledge in the classroom to knowledge everywhere. Yes, everywhere. Mobile is here too, in ways that help you think about how you might use these new devices.
