Gary Sisson (Author)

Publication date: 01/01/2001

Hands-On Training

The first book to detail a systematic, practical, and easily applicable approach to On-the-Job Training (OJT)

Outlines a simple 6-step process that those performing OJT can easily follow to train workers to do their jobs

Presents a proven approach to training workers on job skills that is truly low cost and high return-and does not require extensive documentation or long development times

On-the-Job Training (OJT) is the single most used training method in organizations today. But it is also the most misused-because very few of those doing OJT are ever trained how to do it. In Hands-On Training Gary Sisson draws on his thirty-five years of experience to lay out a simple, systematic approach to OJT that can be understood and applied by anyone in any organization-- managers, line or staff supervisors, employees and both internal and external human resource and training professionals. Using the acronym "HOT POPPER" to help readers remember the parts of the process, Hands-On Training (HOT) outlines six easy steps:

P-Prepare for training
O-Open the session
P-Present the subject
P-Practice the skills
E-Evaluate the performance
R-Review the subject

Within each of the steps are techniques that allow the trainer to apply the system to virtually any job or skill. Hands On Training presents a universal training method that needs little, if any modification to fit different jobs. Its emphasis on structured OJT-one of the few types of training that is theoretically sound and at the same time may be fully integrated into the work place-makes it ideal for training people in applied skills, such as manual sensory skills, procedure following, and problem solving.

Truly low-cost, high return training, Hands-On Training is perfect in low budget situations where an organization lacks funds to develop a more formalized training system. It requires very few resources, doesn't require special developmental efforts, and can be totally administered by the workers themselves without creating an extra burden on management.
