Numerous studies from real settings suggest that S-OJT consistently provides twice the financial benefits and five times the efficiency compared to unstructured OJT. S-OJT makes use of the principle that training is most effective when it occurs as close as possible to the work.  Many companies use S-OJT alone or to complement other training approaches, such as classroom training or online programs. Using S-OJT shows the following outcomes: Reduced training times; Lower training costs; Improved quality rates; and Increased development opportunities.

Structured On-The-Job Training - Unleash

Developed by Ronald L. Jacobs, Ph.D., the World's Foremost Leader on S-OJT


SiTUATE is led by Ronald L. Jacobs, Ph.D., who is widely recognized for his scholarly research and development contributions that address a range of topics in human resource development. Ron is particularly known for introducing structured on-the-job training (S-OJT) to the HRD community in 1987.  His book “Structured On-the-Job Training: Unleashing Employee Expertise in the Workplace” has become the standard guide to help organizations and nations implement this training approach.  Ron’s most recent book, “Work Analysis in the Knowledge Economy: Documenting What People Do in the Workplace for Human Resource Development,” is based on over 30 years of research and practice, and has again become the foremost resource on this important topic. He has received many honors and accolades for his work, including being inducted in two professional halls of fame.
