Two strategies are deductive and inductive training. Deductive training teaches the skills that are needed without direct reference to past learning, education or experience. Inductive training emphasizes higher level cognitive skills, problem solving and independent thinking, all of which are much needed in administrative positions (Margaret C. Lohman, "Deductive and Inductive on-the-Job Training Strategies").
