Machin, Michael A. and Fogarty, Gerard J. (1997) The effects of self-efficacy, motivation to transfer, and situational constraints on transfer intentions and transfer of training. Performance Improvement Quarterly, 10 (2). pp. 98-115. ISSN 0898-5952
An important dimension of training effectiveness relates to how well skills learned during training are transferred to the workplace. The current study examines the effects of several individual characteristics (Self-efficacy, Motivation to Transfer, Training Reactions, Goals for Transfer and Commitment to Transfer Goal) and Situational Constraints on perceived Transfer Success. LISREL VII (Joreskog & Sorbom, 1989) was used to determine the fit of a mediated effects model of how the variables would affect transfer success. Self-efficacy and Motivation to Transfer were found to be significantly related to transfer intentions (Goal for Transfer and Commitment to Transfer Goal) while Goal for Transfer and Commmitment to Transfer Goal were positively related to Transfer Success. The implications of these results for maximizing the transfer of training are discussed.
