Abstract:Among the many studies on transfer of training, few studies have investigated transfer of training in cross-cultural settings. In order to examine the effect of several factors on training transfer, this study conducted case studies of ten HRD professionals in Korea who attended a training program at the University of Illinois in 1997. The degree of learning and training transfer and the factors influencing the training transfer were investigated through interviews, observations, and document review. A qualitative approach was utilized to analyze the data from the interviews. The data analyses showed that most of the trainees experienced a high perceived degree of learning and training transfer. The most influential factor for the transfer of training identified by the trainees was the opportunity to use the learned knowledge and skills on the job. The most influential cultural factor for the learning and training transfer was the language barrier for most of the trainees. Other work environment and cultural factors affecting the training transfer were also found.
