Abstract

Management training has gained much attention over the past decade with developed countries spending billions of dollars each year in this area. In order to examine management training, a mail survey was conducted of 1,000 randomly selected Canadian organisations having at least 500 employees. Results from the 225 responding organisations yielded findings on management training policies, training needs assessment procedures, training evaluation, and expected future directions in management training among other findings. Overall, Canadian organisations recognise the importance of management training; however, there is a need for better identification of training requirements and evaluation of training.
