is a critical function of the Human
It is important

One of the hottest areas of training and development is
web based training, although currently cd-rom based employee
training and development is the most popular form of training
the new employee or cultivating new skillsets or modes
of thinking to the existing employee, primarily because
cd-rom based training is the least expensive and easiest
training solution to implement.
Indeed, interactive media is the fastest growing segment
of training and development, but there is still a great

jobs and delegate the work. After all, it's impractical
to expect all things from one person, no matter how talented
they may be.
