Training generally focuses on information sharing for the purpose of learning how to do something. Often the process involves outside experts, delivering a one-time lesson or short series in a classroom or presentation format.  Training is ideal for transferring technical skills, sharing key information and organizational processes.  Training is ideal for subject matter novices (Low experience/Knowledge) interested in learning from a subject expert (High experience/knowledge).
