Abstract:

This report—based on a critical literature review, exchanges by a group of experts and references to a theoretical framework that incorporates notions from four different disciplines—describes the proposed approach and its theoretical foundations, and offers practical tools for designing training programs that are more realistic and specific to the workplace. We present a three-phase strategy for workplace implementation, with the key imperative of starting from actual work situations and the work methods already in use, rather than imposing methods from the outside.
