This study examined the impact of learning transfer activities on the effectiveness of "Global Effectiveness," a learning program designed to teach skills to effectively communicate and build cross-cultural relationships. The study compared skill usage and performance impact between two groups, one group received only skill training (training only group) and the other received the skill training plus activities designed to support the transfer of learning to job performance (training plus transfer group).

We reviewed literature from the past several years in search of rigorous studies that compared the impact of training seminars alone to training plus different forms of manager coaching. Overall, we found that if organisations fully prepared their managers by providing them with (a) the same training that their employees received and (b) training in an effective coaching process, the organisation could increase the effectiveness of their learning transfer by more than 40%.

We all know that a seminar alone is not likely to result in significant changes in job performance, and much has been written about different techniques for ensuring that skills transfer into organisational performance improvement. However, while many have promoted specific activities to support the transfer of learning, there has been little research comparing the actual impact of these different techniques. En savoir plus.
