Abstract

This study tests the validity of the Arabic version of the Learning Transfer System Inventory (LTSI-version 4) and identifies the factors that impact transferring leadership training. The LTSI was administered to 242 academic managers, who had completed a series of leadership training a year before the study. Exploratory Factor Analysis revealed that all 11 factors in the specific domain were validated, unlike the general domain, where only four factors were validated, and one factor was not validated. Leadership training transfer was primarily influenced by supervisor support, motivation to transfer, peer support, readiness to transfer, and self-efficacy.
