Too much training theory takes too long to read and may not have immediate practical advantages. ICT answers the need for a topical, relevant, wide-ranging and readable analysis of contemporary developments in training and development affecting how practice is delivered in organizational settings.

ICT offers practical, evidence-based solutions to academics and practitioners for direct application in their organizations. It allows training professionals to take advantage of the newest ideas in developing the human resources within their company.
