    This study updates and expands the reviews of empirical studies on training transfer published by Salas and Cannon-Bowers (2001), Cheng and Ho (2001) and Cheng and Hampson (2008). The authors identified 58 empirical studies since 1998 and integrate all transfer variables that have been subject of relevant studies. This is done by moving towards a new training transfer portfolio that is comprised of 13 categories of 36 sub-transfer variables. The purpose of this new training transfer portfolio is to facilitate the company’s investment decision into transfer variables which (1) can be influenced by the company itself (sphere of control) and (2) which are worth the organizational and financial effort (cost-value ratio).
