Abstract

Training can be an expensive investment with little assurance of returns. Thus, training effectiveness is a great concern for enterprises and Human Resource Development (HRD) practitioners. Positive training outcomes and transfer is perhaps a viable result to be expected from any training intervention. Earlier studies related to training effectiveness tend to focus on training design and implementation. By the end of 1980's, however, there is a renewed research interest in the possible effects of human-related and environmental factors on training outcomes and transfer. Knowledge of such influences would help enterprises and HRD practitioners to plan and implement training programs more effectively in order to maximize results. (r}This study is conducted to determine the effects that selected behavioral and organizational factors may have on training outcomes and maintenance of transfer. A I-day training course on 5S housekeeping practices entitled "Amalan 5S untuk Operasi Perusahaan" was conducted to achieve the purpose of this stud doPting a pre-test posttest quasi-experimental research design, participants were put through the training course, and measures of the related factors were taken before, during, and after that course. A total of235 operations workers and supervisors from 12 manufacturing organizations in Sabah and Labuan Federal Territory participated, but only 221 remained at the end of the data collection period.
