Perhaps the bigger problem for training managers is not a shortage of free resources but knowing what resources are any good. I’ll start with the obvious – I try and make this blog useful for training managers and often offer free resources. Besides just being what I’m interested in, it’s good marketing for me and free stuff for you. Here are a few of the more useful training manager related articles and resources from this blog and my business training site:

Hard to separate the wheat from the crap, but still some good stuff on there. For example Randy Pausch on time management
