Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The problem and the solution. Until recently, planned training on the job has been primarily used to achieve individual training objectives. How to use planned training on the job as part of the change management process to achieve broader organizational goals has recently emerged as an issue of importance. Specifically, planned training on the job has been suggested as a means to deliver cascade training. Cascade training has been defined as the process of providing the competence required to ensure the institutionalization of organizational change. Connecting planned training on the job and cascade training for the purpose of institutionalizing organizational change has implications for both human resource development (HRD) theory and practice.
