PILATI, Ronaldo and BORGES-ANDRADE, Jairo E.. Work application strategies of learning from training: conceptual proposition and development of a measure. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2005, vol.18, n.2, pp. 207-214. ISSN 1678-7153. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722005000200009.
The role of the ex-trainee in the post training environment is not enough studied, while several evaluation models of training impact highlight the role of contextual variables at the post training environment. This work intends to investigate that role. The objectives are to propose a concept for studying the phenomenon and to validate a questionnaire for its measurement. A conceptual analysis of the construct has been done and a scale has been developed. This scale was applied in a sample of workers and the data was analyzed by using a latent structure technique. The results corroborate the theoretical presuppositions of the conceptual analysis, but more studies need to be done to a) better describe the construct characteristics; and b) relate it with indicators of training results at work.
