If a company wants employees to learn a particular review technique or programming language, it will make sure they get "just in time" training: they learn exactly what they need, exactly when they need it. However, far fewer companies are interested in "just in case" training, keeping their employees current in their fields. The author discusses how much time the "top 100 places to work" (according to a Computerworld survey) set aside for training. He then suggests a relatively new approach to training and continuing education-peer-based in-service training.
