Motivation to Transfer Training: An Integrative Literature Review
Gegenfurtner, Andreas; Veermans, Koen; Festner, Dagmar; Gruber, Hans
Human Resource Development Review, v8 n3 p403-423 2009
Motivation to transfer is essential for the transfer of training. Without motivation, newly acquired knowledge and skills will not be applied at work. The purpose of this integrative literature review is to summarize, critique, and synthesize past transfer motivation research and to offer directions for future investigations. First, seven contributions of past research are presented in an attempt to understand antecedents, correlates, and consequences of motivation to transfer. Second, an alternative view that complements and extends current approaches is discussed, and its implications for future studies investigating employees' motivation for training application on the job are outlined. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
