Training for a Rapidly Changing Workplace Summary

Training for a Rapidly Changing Workplace: Applications of Psychological Research by Miguel A. Quinones

To achieve and maintain a competitive edge, organization leaders have realized that they must find the most effective training possible for their workforce. What kinds of training are needed in order to adapt to an uncertain future and to an increasingly volatile workplace? Psychological science is ideally positioned to answer this question? Inspired by these emergent issues, this text brings together researchers from the areas of industrial/organizational, motivational and cognitive psychology, as well as human factors engineering, computer science and other related disciplines to study human learning and its applications to training. The diverse perspectives in this volume focus on four critical issues in training. The first explores the broad societal and institutional issues driving the need for training. The second theme asks how basic principles of learning can be optimally applied to the job environment. The third explores connections between training objectives and systems for evaluating and delivering training. The final theme concerns the impact of future technologies and ways of organizing work in the training enterprise. The text aims to stimulate theoretical developments, empirical research and innovative training practices.
