The book is bursting with innovative ideas that will help readers create powerful solutions in their organization, their country, their region and their continent. Human Performance and Training Issues should be of value to anyone interested in matching the right solutions to the right problems, addressing causes by providing a range of solutions to improve human performance in any organizations in the global economy. The volume provides foundational chapters for the field and human performance to guide development or improvement of HR management strategies, training and management, which will prove to be dynamic, efficient, responsive to changes encompassing organizations, and grounded in vision and excellence. Critical issues facing organizations today include how to build intellectual capital, establish and maintain a high-performance workplace, enhance profitability, and encourage productivity. These needs require practitioners to go beyond a competency-based approach to training.

Non-managers will also benefit from the book through identifying and solving day to day human performance problems because these problems are applicable to their work. Finally, for researchers, administrators and students who are looking forward to improving their research skills, our authors provide exemplary scholarly work in terms of how to conduct meaningful research in the area of human performance and training. Also, such a volume rich in identifying and seizing human performance improvement opportunities will help prepare our students to enter and excel in the real world of work.
