Abstract

Although training is critical to leverage performance and competitiveness, it has been reported that only a part of learned skills is transferred to the workplace, reinforcing the need for a deeper understanding of the transfer process. The purpose of this study is to validate the revised learning transfer system inventory (LTSI) in Portugal. LTSI was administrated to 403 participants from five organizations operating in Portugal, upon completion of training programs. Exploratory and confirmatory analyses were used to determine whether or not the new structure was replicated. Results showed a latent structure with 11 factors against the original 16. The study also analyzed LTSI dimensions across some individual and situational variables and revealed that transfer system perceptions are statistically different in several of them. Implications for HR and future research directions are presented.
