EARNS a place on YOUR desk...not the shelf! May 22 2007
By The Least of These - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As a trainer, Six Sigma Black Belt, Certified Performance Technologist, and Sr. manager for a leading BioTech firm whose job is to help my site adopt the tools, concepts and methods of HPT, Lean, Six Sigma, I use this reference all the time. Taking a "fieldbook" approach much like Peter Senge's FIFTH DISCIPLINE and DANCE OF CHANGE fieldbooks, the HANDBOOK FOR HUMAN PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY is THE "bible" in our field. Full of real world advice, insights, and helpful models and examples, don't miss your chance to have the best reference around in your toolkit.

A "must have" reference for improving workplace performance!!! Jan. 6 2007
By Roger Chevalier - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Like its previous editions, the third edition of the Handbook of Human Performance Technology is a "must have" reference for all performance improvement professionals and those seeking to systematically and systemically identify and remove barriers to individual and organizational performance. Unlike many books on the subject that offer the views of an individual or small group of authors, the Handbook's fifty-five articles give the reader an opportunity to learn from the diverse experience of some of the best practitioners and academicians in the field.

very thorough April 13 2009
By R. Hemmer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
People who work in this field should find the chapters helpful. I like that many subjects are covered by experts in their particular areas. Each chapter covers a part of the spectrum and should be useful for people in human resources, performance improvement, training, and curriculum and instruction. I use it as a reference tool and often start here before going on to other sources to complete what I am looking for. I sometime read a chapter to gain a wider perspective on a subject I know little about. The contributors are well-known and most write in an acedemic style. The style m ight be off-putting to some who don't often read acedemic journals. Even so, the content is very user-friendly and organized well.
It is expensive so make sure you need it before you purchase.
