The authors offer proven skills, training, and educational applications that develop individual employee thinking for total quality management, ISO 9000, or other quality-team business programs. It develops the great potential of using cognitive-based learning to empower people for quality and workplace leadership, systems that move beyond traditional behavior-based training techniques. The authors explain what can and cannot be done to increase "creative thinking," insight, and adult intelligence. They provide bottom-line measures for assessing the effectiveness of training procedures and show how a commitment to substantive life-long employee education can build a stronger business and corporate presence in the marketplace of the future.

Editorial Reviews

?This thoughtful and provocative presentation of the role of business in preparing its human resources for the 21st century is written to enable trainers to increase the power and scope of educational programs for the work-force. It is equally relevant to the academic community in structuring business curricula to prepare students to think critically and creatively, to solve problems, to exercise judgment, and to learn new skills and knowledge throughout a lifetime. Each chapter is well researched and clearly written, and contains an extensive list of references. Pertinent to business faculties as well as to those responsible for continuing education programs.
