The present study is undertaken to investigate the effectiveness of a managerial training with the help of Kirkpatrick framework. It evaluates training at two levels of Kirkpatrick framework; reaction and learning among trainees through a use of cross-sectional data. Two sets of questionnaires were filled by the trainees, the first one assessed the training satisfaction and the second measured the learning of trainees immediately after completing the training. Data is collected from 136 full time employees from middle-level management positions and is analysed using SPSS AMOS 25.0. The findings suggest a high level of training effectiveness at both levels; satisfaction and learning. The training success was associated with four factors; practical orientation, training environment, role of trainer, and training usefulness.


Keywords –Training effectiveness, working environment, training usefulness, trainer, learning, Kirkpatrick framework.
