The practical recommendations made in the book are based on work Turpin has been doing with certain clients for years. These clients know that SMEs shouldn’t be tasked with delivering training without the proper support. This book explains how to provide support both through instructional design and through coaching.

As the back cover says:

“Don’t plan your next live training event without it.”
