Addresses the questions of why adults seek training and what motivates them to learn. Provides guidelines for managers distilled from key sources. Also looks at the problem of motivating the transfer of training to the workplace. Sometimes it is difficult to motivate employees, first to accept training and then to have them use the training once they have returned to work.
