    Abstract

    A large number of organizations incur considerable expenditure on management training. However, these training costs can be justified only if the knowledge and skills acquired in the training program is transferred back to the workplace. This study examines the factors that are associated with the transfer of management training. The current analysis was based on a survey involving a sample of participants from 200 organizations selected at random from among Australia’s top 500 companies. Data were collected using a structured questionnaire from managers who had attended training programs within the past two years. Multiple regression results indicate that motivation to attend the training, trainee perceptions and supervisor support are significantly associated with transfer of training. The implications of these findings are discussed.
