Abstract

It is important to get away from the prevailing notion that off‐the‐job training is always more efficient and effective than on‐the‐job training (OJT). Jan de Jong has done an admirable job of drawing attention to this important issue. I would like to provide support for several of de Jong's key points and raise issues with others. My aim is to enlarge the discussion beyond issues in de Jong's article and to frame questions that I—as a practitioner who has long grappled firsthand with this subject—feel are central to the continuing evolution of OJT and on‐the‐job learning (OJL) in the workplace.
