Abstract

This paper, using the resource-based view of the firm as the theoretical background, is to determine whether the integration of training in the firm’s business strategies increases the impact of training on the firm’s competitiveness. A regression analysis of the data obtained from a survey of training professionals employed in small, medium, and large firms across three different industries reveals a statistically significant positive regression coefficient, b = .554, t(97) = 6.25, p < .001.

Keywords: Training, Strategic Integration, Firm’s Competitiveness
