Overview

To achieve and maintain a competitive edge, organization leaders have realized that they must find the most effective training possible for their workforce. They ask what kinds of training they need in order to adapt to an uncertain future and to an ever-changing and increasingly volatile workplace. Psychological science is ideally positioned to answer this critical question. Inspired by these emergent issues, Training for a Rapidly Changing Workplace: Applications of Psychological Research 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.

Training for a Rapidly Changing Workplace fills a critical gap in the training literature and is sure to stimulate theoretical developments, empirical research, and innovative training practices into the next century. The multidisciplinary approach, integration of cutting-edge developments, and broad coverage of the discipline make this a must-have volume for researchers, teachers, trainers, and students new to the field.
