Maximizing Learner Transfer

The most important factors that determine the success of transferring learning to the workplace have been pinpointed in a ground-breaking research program carried out on behalf of the Irish Management Institute by Dr. Paul Donovan, its head of management development, and internationally renowned trainer John Townsend.

Donovan and Townsend identify the critical actions that need to be taken to maximize learning transfer: work environment, training design, trainee characteristics and transfer climate.

The two are the co-authors of several popular books on facilitation, training needs analysis and training evaluation.
