Abstract: Transfer of training (or post-training behavior change) is of paramount concern to the management because of the large amount of investment spent on and the unclear results of training. The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of the Management Training Programme on the post-training behavior of the trainees. Participants in the survey were 57 trainees and 57 mentors/supervisors from the public hospitals under the management of the Hospital Authority, Hong Kong. The training programme, the on-the-job factors (i.e., work environment, supervisors, subordinates and trainees themselves), and some demographic data (i.e., gender, age, tenure, dual role of mentors, other management trainings and promotion) were hypothesised to have either direct or indirect effects on post-training behavior. Results from correlation tests showed that only the trainees themselves and the mentors when acting concurrently as supervisors were related to the post-training behavior changes. Implications for programme improvement and enhancing transfer of training were discussed.
