Title: Antecedents of training transfer A case study of in-house courses at NCC, a Swedish construction and property development company
Authors: Gjers, Annie
Abstract: This study investigated work-related factors and trainee characteristics as antecedents of training transfer. The literature review identified seven factors as possible antecedents; selfefficacy, manager support, autonomy, time pressure, expected outcome, learning, and motivation to transfer. These factors were assessed using a quantitative questionnaire that was sent out to participants in the two courses Partnering and Cost control at NCC, a swedish construction and property development company. Correlation analysis demonstrated that selfefficacy, different kinds of manager support, learning, and motivation to transfer had a positive relationship to training transfer. Multiple linear regression modelling indicated that motivation to transfer is important to training transfer. These results are in line with previous research. The survey research was complemented with interviews with enquirers of the two investigated courses. The purpose of the interviews was to capture NCC’s goals and expectations of the outcome of the courses. When relating the results of the interviews with the results of the questionnaire, it seems like NCC’s formal goals and expectations are met. The majority of the employees learn and transfer what they are supposed to. The enquirers’ expectations of the courses are also in line with the employees’.
