What is training?
Communication and collaboration guru Robin Good (aka Luigi Canali De Rossi) poses the question, "What is your best definition of training?"
Do you agree with his definition? Do you have a better one?
Here is the definition from ASTD's/Learning Circuits's e-learning glossary.
Training: A process that aims to improve knowledge, skills, attitudes, and/or behaviors in a person to accomplish a specific job task or goal. Training is often focused on business needs and driven by time-critical business skills and knowledge, and its goal is often to improve performance. See also Teaching and Learning.
