About this title


Training can, and should be a powerful agent of change, facilitating and enabling a firm to grow, expand, and develop its capabilities, thus enhancing profitability. In the Kenyan context, it is not clear to what extent knowledge, skills, and attitudes gained from the training are being transferred to the job as a strategy for improving business performance The results of the study indicated that trainees perceived that transfer of training had occurred at varying degrees. The most influential factors were relevance and importance of the skill to the job, opportunity to use training on the job and external work environment. External work environment factors were poor infrastructure, financial expectations after the training, unpredictable business trends, tendency to employ relatives, corruption, expectations of follow-up, distribution of risk by owning several business and bureaucracy. Baldwin and Ford?s model of transfer was applicable to Kenyan context. The study found out that only two elements (relevance of the skill to the business and opportunity to use) were found applicable. This book should be useful to trainers, management consultants and HR students practitioners
