Making sure the training travels: Goal‐setting way to transfer knowledge

Development and Learning in Organizations

ISSN: 1477-7282

Article publication date: 28 June 2011




This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting‐edge research and case studies.


This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.


According to modern‐day cynics (or maybe they are just realists) involved in teaching and coaching, a huge chunk of what we learn at management training programs does not follow us far beyond the training center door, and a further large proportion of what is remembered is not applied to the job.

Practical implications

The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.


The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to digest format.
