Title of My Dissertation

I am working on my dissertation in pursuit of my PhD in Education. My specialty is training and performance improvement, which is rooted in human performance technology (HPT) and human performance improvement (HPI).

The topic of my dissertation is social learning in the workplace, specifically, I am studying how newly hires sales professionals learn their jobs through a social learning intervention and the relationship between participation in the social learning intervention and sales results. 

In idle moments, I sometimes tinker with the title of my dissertation. Here are a few iterations. I wonder what you think.
  • The Death of a Sales Trainer: An Action Research Study of Social Learning and Sales Performance
  • The Death of a Sales Trainer: An Action Research Study of Social Learning and Sales Performance in the Workplace
  • The Death of a Sales Trainer: A Study of Social Learning in the Workplace
  • The Death of a Sales Trainer: Enterprise Social Networks and On-Boarding New Sales Professionals
Well, there are a few more variations. By reading this short list, you can likely tell which part of the title, I am married to. In any case, if you should happen upon this blog post and have read this far, I would love to know what you think of the title. Any other ideas? Comment below, if you do.
