HASH(0xa00ed96c) out of 5 stars Good book April 17 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought the author did a good job explaining the basics of competency-based training in this book. I appreciated the worksheets that are included to give you support as you explore and create competency-based trainings. I thought the Appendix B was particularly good, which gives information on creating a competency model.

This book didn't reference as many other sources as some other books in this series do, but there is a good list of references and resources at the back that I expect to be valuable.
