The problem of this study is to investigate the extent to which training professionals employed in US-based global and local companies are strategically integrated in their companies’ business strategies. The t-test analysis of data obtained from an online survey of training professionals shows that there is not a statistically significant difference in the involvement of training professionals, who are employed in US-based global and local companies, in their firms’ differentiation, cost leadership, focus, market penetration, and market development strategies. However, the same analysis shows a statistically significant difference in the involvement of training professionals in their respective firms’ product/service development, and diversification strategies.
