Empirical Validation of Outcomes from Training Programs: A Case Study

Gregory Kenneth Laing, Paul Andrews


The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate a method for the validation of training programs. This paper empirically tests variables to provide evidence in support of the outcomes from a training program in a case study. Whilst the ability to identify and measure the outcomes from training programs is highly relevant to all organizations it should be noted that no one set of variables will be applicable to all circumstances. The implications from this paper are that statistical analysis can be used validate measured outcomes of a training program. The method used in this paper provides a technique that has applicability for use over a wide range of training programs. This method is especially significant for Strategic Human Resource Management as a means for providing supporting evidence to justify the outcomes from training programs.
