This research was designed to investigate the correlation between manager‘s role andtraining transfer. A survey method was employed to gather 427 usable questionnaires fromgovernment servants in a local government office in Malaysia. The outcome of stepwise regressionstudy showed four important findings: firstly, support is insignificantly correlated with trainingtransfer. Secondly, communication is significantly correlated with training transfer. Thirdly,assignment is insignificantly correlated with training transfer. Fourthly, delivery mode issignificantly correlated with training transfer. The statistical value of this research shows thatcommunication and delivery mode have played important roles as determinants of training transfer,but support and assignment have not played important roles as determinants of training transfer inthe organizational sample. In this paper, discussions, propositions and conclusions are elaborated.Keywords: Manager‘s role, training transfer, local government office in Malaysia
