Lags in Training Response to Changes in Economic Activity: An Exploratory Inquiry for Five Industries
Azevedo, Ross E.; Park, Jin S.; Akdere, Mesut
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Research Conference in the Americas of the Academy of Human Resource Development (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 28-Mar 4, 2007)
This study investigates the length of time it takes training budgets in five industries to respond to changes in the demand for their services/activity and for their speed of response to changes in productive activity. The results indicate that for the industries studied, the length of lag between change in demand and median adjustment to that change is from six to nine months. This bespeaks serious challenges to America's competitiveness in the world economy. (Contains 2 tables.)
