CASSIANO, Simone Kelli  and  BORGES-ANDRADE, Jairo Eduardo. Methodological delimitations of the brazilian research on effects of training. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.3, pp. 141-149. ISSN 1984-6657.

Individuals and organizations develop strategies that facilitate or promote training in order to meet the demands imposed by technological progress and socio-political changes. However, there are methodological problems concerning the effects of such strategies which must be considered. Gaps persist on how to overcome those issues. To address this need, this study presents a review of Brazilian production in the training research area, focusing on the impact on work. Among 85 Brazilian articles, 24 research reports with this focus were identified, and were analyzed according to the standards used in international reviews. Results indicated several tendencies, such as a higher use of amplitude than of depth measures, and simultaneous data gathering of predictive and outcome variables. Some methodological issues were suggested for progress in this area, such as research studies with experimental designs and the multilevel approach.

Keywords : work training impact; organizational learning; training evaluation.
