Training for Development

Third Edition
  • Rolf P. Lynton - Freelance Consultant, North Carolina
  • Udai Pareek - Distinguished visiting professor, Indian Institute of Health Management Research, Jaipur


October 2011 | 400 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
This is the third edition of Rolf P. Lynton and Udai Pareek's bestselling book, Training for Development. Completely revised, this new edition reflects the "speed of change" that the world has undergone in the last two decades and includes recent examples and illustrations.

Since 1967, Training for Development has been regarded as the most comprehensive work available to professionals in the field of training and development. The authors focus on training not primarily as a source of new information, but rather as a means for changing behavior for lasting improvement on the job.

While the book is well-anchored theoretically, it is also full of practical examples. It is divided into four sections and each section contains well-researched models and illustrations on training and development. Written in a jargon-free style, it is an essential reading for those involved in training, human resource development, organizational and institutional development, and organizational behavior.
