The training and development needs of any workforce vary dramatically between the generations and levels even so far as the style of communication needed to be effective.At the same time training budgets are tighter than ever before and training departments are increasing marginalised as informal learning in a cyber workplace grows. So how can you tackle the challenges of this environment effectively?

Complete Training looks at the employee life cycle and posits a series of training challenges and opportunities relevant across each stage - from new hires to the éminence grise of the organisation - the objective is to enable learning and development practitioners to build individual capability and an organisation with a memory, continually learning from its own endeavours. By looking at how learning organisations succeed, complete training seeks to re-position L&D as central to the business, central to strategy and central to the organization's mission.

"Robin's work constantly asks you to challenge your preconceptions of what good training should be about. He excels in questioning the attitudes of the status quo and accepted thinking that has allowed much of L&D to lack the innovation it needs. 'Complete Training: From recruitment to retirement' is no exception and is highly recommended reading for everyone in the industry." (Jon Kennard, editor, TrainingZone.co.uk)"Based on many years of experience in adult learning, working with a variety of clients, including big multinationals with dozens of thousands of people to develop, Robin summarises here his uncompromising views about what's wrong with corporate training and development and how it can be put right. It provides vital advice for anyone interested in developing an organisation's most valuable resource - its people." (Svetlana Omeltchenko, Vice President Consumer Market Insights at Coty Inc)

    I love this book! The author's style, his wonderful and refreshing combination of honesty, the advice, theory and experience from a viewpoint which is so obviously based on years of experience working with a wide range of clients and organizational needs. He absolutely knocks so many `nails on the head', all of those things that, as trainers, we've doubted or struggled to apply in the ever-changing training world. For example, when new `buzz words' appear and we think to ourselves `but, isn't that just the same as...?' Robin confirms this with the statement `Linguistic fashion is a disease which regularly affects the L&D field. It's a game you may have to play...'.From the new recruit through to the retiree the author helps us to think about the experience and challenges that each learner has, and what they can bring to the organization and learning process. As he so rightly quotes, `If we're serious about training people... then training can't be left to the L&D team alone. Everyone is involved.' This is so true!This is a great read - can't wait for another `Robin Hoyle' book!

    Hoyle has created what could be considered a Bible to training. Complete Training contains a systematic review of what is good and bad in an industry that is constantly having to justify itself. From the person starting out in their training career through to those with years of experience under their belt everyone will find something in this book to provoke their thinking about what they are currently doing in the field of training and what they should be doing. For once it does not just focus on how to train people who are new to a job, but also considers how to motivate and develop those who are nearing the end of their careers but still have much to give. Hoyle uses his extensive experience in the field of elearning to consider what role technology should have in the provision of learning and gives wise counsel in this regard. What really stood out for me was thinking through the whole learning process and how to help trainees embed their learning into their daily work and bring about sustainable behaviour change - that holy grail of the training industry.

  • By Cathy H on 28 September 2013

    This book is written in a pleasant, easy to read, down-to-earth style. It is funny, informative and also quite provocative in places. Hoyle challenges many preconceptions and undermines several commonly held notions about how people learn best. His advice is based on years of experience and backed up by solid research. The book raises the sorts of questions that all trainers should ask themselves before they begin to construct a CPD programme, and provides guidelines for getting the best out of participants. It contains many examples of both good and bad practice that are instantly familiar to anyone who has ever been involved in CPD - from the points of view of both trainer and trainee.

  • By Jo on 26 November 2013

    Robin Hoyle's Complete Training: From Recruitment to Retirement takes an open and honest look at the opportunities and challenges learning and development professionals face in today's dynamic workplaces. Covering a wide range of ideas, theories and case-studies, I think it's a must-read for anyone involved or interested in effectively developing their people. With tools and tips on both traditional and `digital' training methods I found a great deal of food-for-thought on what really works (or not) in our blended learning strategies. The anecdotes and experiences Robin shares make it an enjoyable book to read too. Highly recommended!

  • By Andrew Korkoza on 16 September 2013

    Amazing! A complete bible of training. Robin Hoyle's theoretical knowledge and organisational experiences underpins and challenges our understanding of training with regard to the needs of the company and most importantly, the needs of the individual. His uncompromising advice on how training is failing the individual and his brilliant theories on how to change our conceptions of training make this a hard talking, no nonsense read. Training needed an overhaul - and this is it.
