Management Training and Evaluation by Major United States Industrial Corporations.
Sheffieck, Charles Fauriaux
This nationwide questionnaire survey covered the history, present organization, top management involvement, and other features of the total system of management training and evaluation in a random sample of corporations appearing among the largest 500 listed in "Fortune" (June 15, 1968, issue) and having at least one member listed in the 1968 American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) membership directory. There were 73 usable responses. Data were obtained on corporate sales, net profit, number of employees, and individual ASTD membership by chief corporate training officers. These were among the major findings: (1) 96% of participating corporations had management training activities, 96% also conducted formal evaluations of the training function, and 86% stated that organizational development was part of their corporation strategy; (2) 82% of the chief corporation training officers stated they saw a positive change in top management attitudes toward management training; (3) 96% of these training officers were college graduates, and 52% had advanced degrees; (4) 62% of respondents reported that the amount of evaluation of their management training programs had increased in recent years.
