Effective succession planning : ensuring leadership continuity and building talent from within by William J Rothwell( Book )

57 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the seminal first edition of Effective Succession Planning, William J. Rothwell warned that businesses that don't take proactive steps to plan for future talent needs at all levels will face certain disruptions, and even disasters, when key employees retire or are lured away by competitors." "Since then, the landscape has become even more complicated. Many organizations have already felt the effects of an aging workforce as increasing numbers of experienced employees retire, taking with them not only the capacity to do the work but also the accumulated wisdom they have acquired over the years. This serious loss of valuable institutional memory has made it apparent that no organization can afford to be without a strong succession program." "Now in its third edition, Effective Succession Planning is still the most comprehensive and authoritative book on the subject. Updated and expanded to reflect the latest trends and best practices in succession management, the book presents strategies for creating a complete, systematic succession planning program."--Jacket
Mastering the instructional design process : a systematic approach by William J Rothwell( Book )

43 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mastering the Instructional Design Process is the first book to be based on a study of the competencies required of instructional design professionals--a study sponsored by the International Board of Standards for Training, Performance, and Instruction. This book provides a step-by-step guide through the instructional design process." "The authors offer advice on every aspect of the process, from conducting accurate needs assessments through summarizing performance objectives, developing effective instructional materials, and evaluating learning outcomes. They explain how to assess an organization's instructional requirements; determine worker readiness for learning; develop performance objectives and measurements that help enhance employee accountability; design effective instructional materials; refine instructors' visual, oral, and written communication skills, and handle the gray areas of instruction, such as establishing rapport in the classroom, asking and answering questions, and dealing with conflict." "A wealth of case studies, checklists, and charts help readers apply key principles of the text to their work."--Jacket

Beyond training and development : state-of-the art strategies for enhancing human performance by William J Rothwell( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is your organization achieving impressive results by enhancing its employees' performance - or is it merely engaged in the activity of training? This is the question and the challenge posed by Beyond Training and Development, a groundbreaking guide to implementing a company-wide human performance enhancement (HPE) program. In Beyond Training and Development, you'll discover an action manual for change. The book provides a comprehensive new model for HPE and describes practical strategies for its implementation. And it shows how HPE methods improve both individual and organizational productivity and competence. Rothwell's book makes the whole process easier by providing a unified approach to performance improvement based on a single, original model; explaining how to distinguish between job problems, worker problems, organizational problems, and environmental problems - and how to choose the best strategy or combination of strategies to address each type of problem; and going beyond traditional ideas of "training" or "development" that are limited in scope and too focused on scattered activities rather than results

Yet in many organizations, OJT is typically left to the devices of supervisors, executives, and other well-intentioned co-workers who lack the necessary skills to plan and execute it successfully

What CEOs expect from corporate training : building workplace learning and performance initiatives that advance organizational goals by William J Rothwell( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What CEOs Expect from Corporate Training reveals at long last what executives hope to achieve when they pour considerable financial commitment into workplace learning initiatives. And while it may be no surprise that they want to tie these programs directly to corporate goals, their input on how these objectives are structured, funded, and evaluated holds the key to developing and realizing relevant, effective T & D." "The authors have created this one-of-a-kind book based on dozens of extensive interviews with CEOs from a broad cross section of professions and industries. Their detailed answers - divided into subtopics, compiled, annotated, and analyzed by the authors - paint a clear picture not only of the role that workplace learning plays in achieving corporate objectives, but also of the very particular ways in which WLP professionals can (and must) design and run their programs."--Jacket
