Praise for Outsourcing Training & Development

Based on the real–world experience of human resource vice presidents and consultants from a variety of organizations, Outsourcing Training and Development is your one–stop guide to implementing a successful outsourced training program.

"This book brims with practical guidance, wise counsel, rich examples and, best of all, helpful tools. It′s a must for HRD or training managers and all other key stakeholders involved in outsourcing any part of training."
Harold D. Stolovitch, emeritus professor, Universite de Montreal, principal, HAS Learning and Performance Solutions and author, Telling Ain′t Training and Training Ain′t Performance

"In step–by–step details, Judith Hale outlines how to make the right decisions about outsourcing securing the proper agreements and keeping the process on track. In an easy–to–read format with figures and charts, this is an indispensable tool for those involved in outsourcing."
Jack Phillips, chairman, ROI Institute, Inc.

"The charts, tables, and guidelines are superb resources for both sides of the relationship, and Hale′s many examples let us learn from others who have traveled this potentially treacherous path before. Outsourcing Training and Development is the perfect map!"
James J. Hill, Jr., CEO, Proofpoint Systems Inc.

"Buy this book and use it. What I like most about the book is that it does not paint outsourcing as the panacea that some might think that it is. Like anything else, outsourcing requires hard thinking, planning and managing. Judy Hale gives you that and much more."
William J. Rothwell, Professor–in–Charge, Workforce Education and Development, The Pennsylvania State University
