Join us for a virtual workshop with Ronald L. Jacobs, Ph.D., well-known professor of human resource development and global consultant, who first introduced structured on-the-job training (S-OJT) while a professor at the Ohio State University in the 1980s. His book “Structured On-the-Job Training: Unleashing Employee Expertise in the Workplace” has become the standard guide to help organizations and nations implement this training approach. Ron’s most recent book, “Work Analysis in the Knowledge Economy: Documenting What People Do in the Workplace for Human Resource Development” (2019), is based on over 30 years of research and practice, and has again become the foremost resource on this important topic.
