Can you recommend books containing detailed T&D strategies?


I'd be h-u-g-e-l-y grateful if anyone can recommend publications containing DETAILED examples of training & development strategies, that I can refer to as benchmarking examples (policies, objectives, frameworks, implementation plans, etc.). I'm getting there, but this is new territory for me.

Thanks in advance

  1. Yes…..
    I found Andrew Mayo’s book ‘Creating a Training and Development Strategy’ really useful. It’s an IPD publication. I bought it from Amazon. It’s got some useful stuff about HRD generally but also a good model for the creation of a strategy.

  2. Training Strategy
    There are several on the market, but nothing beats sitting down with someone and talking it through. We specialise precisely in this area. Give me a call on 01252 545 171 and visit our website at



  3. A rigorous approach
    Depending on how analytical you want to be, a title by John Patrick, published by Academic Press about 1995 is very rigorous especially in its application of psychological research. Can’t remember the full title offhand but if you come back to me, I’ll look it up.

  4. Recommendation of book
    I found the following useful :

    Human Resource Development – Perspectives, Strategies and practice, edited Jim Stewart & Jim McGoldrick published by Pitman ISBN 0273612352

    Go to to see publications. Try Andrew Mayo’s book “Creating a Training and Development Strategy” (ISBN 0 85292 732 0) published by CIPD (01752-202301).
