I read the book in Romanian, but the translation seems pretty good. We are in the process of selection for Outdoor Holidays® and I remember I had the book on the shelf for some time. I spent few hours reading it and for sure don't regret.
Very easy reading; captivating, easy to understand and striped down to essentials. No useless yada-yada, no complicated math formulas, just what you need. Maybe to simple for a recruiter, but for a small business owner who just want to improve the recruitment process in the company and doesn't have time to read a lot theory , is just fine. ( )

Provides practical solutions to the business problem of distributing training to multiple locations. It introduces a new and practical way to use assessment to create a sustainable training and development function. Shows how those involved with training and development can make bottom line contributions to the company. Provides a model for calculating return on investment (ROI) for technology based programs. In this era of rapid globalization, human resource development professionals in every type of organization face the problem of managing training and development across many different, often widely dispersed, sites. Training Across Multiple Locations offers a comprehensive, proven model for designing, building and assessing every aspect of a multiple location training and development (T&D) system. Stephen Krempl and R. Wayne Pace detail how to integrate training from multiple locations into a comprehensive organizational strategy, and how corporate training can align those multiple locations with a single corporate vision. Training Across Multiple Locations draws from numerous real-life examples to show how distance learning technology-including intra-nets, web-based training, and computer-based training-is being used to manage multi-point training at companies like Motorola, Ford, Boeing, Kinko's, Hewlett-Packard, and others. With technology, the authors reveal, training organizations are able to extend their reach and distribute training over a far wider audience in ways that may make current approaches to training less relevant and even obsolete. And perhaps most importantly, they provide a model for calculating return on investment (ROI) for these technology-based programs. Krempl and Pace present a detailed review process for evaluating the effectiveness of multiple location training and development systems and provide specific advice on how to conduct the review and how to share data to enhance unit effectiveness. They also include a unique questionnaire that helps teams assess how well they are carrying out their T&D responsibilities and how well they are integrating their activities into the corporate business plan. Training and development functions survive by maintaining relationships with critical decision-makers at all levels in the organization. This process is often described in terms of politics and power-but Training Across Multiple Locations treats the issue simply in terms of how to get the job done. The unique process described in this book will encourage better preparation and more informed discussions and decisions, allowing managers to better anticipate problems and stay on top of key issues.… (more)
