From the Back Cover

The Essential Guide to Improving Workplace Performance

The first two editions of the Handbook of Human Performance Technology helped define the rapidly growing and vibrant field of Human Performance Technology—a systematic approach to improving individual and organizational performance. Exhaustively researched, this comprehensive sourcebook not only updates key foundational chapters on organizational change, evaluation, instructional design, and motivation, it also features breakthrough chapters on "performance technology in action" and addresses many new topics in the field, such as certification, Six Sigma, and communities of practice.

Boasting fifty-five new chapters, contributors to this new edition comprise a veritable "who's who" in the field of performance improvement, including Geary Rummler, Roger Kaufman, Ruth Clark, Allison Rossett, Margo Murray, Judith Hale, Dana and James Robinson, and many others.

HASH(0xa44e6b40) out of 5 stars EARNS a place on YOUR desk...not the shelf! May 22 2007
By The Least of These - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa4091d14) out of 5 stars A "must have" reference for improving workplace performance!!! Jan. 6 2007
By Roger Chevalier - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa3b50780) out of 5 stars very thorough April 13 2009
By RhFactor - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa45a3e04) out of 5 stars Trainer who is in Master's level class in HPT April 21 2011
By Elias Fernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a Student in a Graduate level class who has read many chanpters for my class I can say that it is well written and very clear in the topics covered and the material.

I have used topics covered already in my professional life and Purchised the book outright rather than renting it as this is something I wish to read over and over again.
