JIT-Style Learning and Training
The best kind of quality oriented
training) is just-in-time-style learning, that is, learning that happens on
the job and knowledge which is applied immediately as needed. The sooner you
can apply the material you learned, the better you will understand it and
the longer it will be retained. Instead of training masses of employees for
long periods, in JIT-style training, education is implemented as an ongoing
series of short sessions (just a few hours a week) during which employees

Innovative e-learning services create new
opportunities for such on the job JIT-style learning
and training. In particular, this first-ever
Business e-Coach provides very effective JIT-style
e-learning opportunity which is available free anytime to anybody.
