This paper explores the benefits of effective management training and consequences of ineffective training programs.
Seasoned managers (278) working in rapidly changing organizations were surveyed on issues related to management training.
Content analyses revealed a number of specific benefits associated with management training. Conversely, managers identified a series of problems caused by ineffective management training.
Generalization of these findings to non‐rapidly changing organizations is unclear.
Findings suggest that the effectiveness of management training has a significant impact on managerial and organizational performance.
This paper voices the concerns and observations about managerial training from seasoned managers in rapidly changing organizations.
