situation regarding a small business that requested training. Review the Fabrics Inc. examples at the end of these chapters. These
sections are labeled, “The Training Program (Fabrics, Inc.)”. Blanchard and Thacker (2013) have demonstrated the phases of the Training

Chapter 4 presents the needs analysis, the beginning of a step-by-step process for developing a training program, for this small
fabrications company. Chapter 5 continues with a description of the Fabrics, Inc., training program identifying the training design.
Chapter 8 provides examples of some of the training outputs, starting with the instructor’s manual and elaborates on the development
and implementation steps. Finally, Chapter 9 examines the evaluation phase of the Fabrics, Inc. training.
