For me, I'm interested in things like how does the adoption of high performance work practices, such as those described in the People CMM, lead to organizational transformation? How would we know the organization has changed? What were the changes in outcomes? How did they manage that transformation?
Best of luck,

Thanks for providing an insight on the topic. Since i am working in Training & Development profile so, i want to research on this topic too.
As to how does the Training & Development initiative contribute towards individual & organizational development in the long run?
How do they contribute towards employee motivation and retention?
How to measure the effectiveness of the training initiative at organizational level?
How do they study its impact on the financial outcomes?
Please let me know if this would be an apt topic for research and do these questions would entail a meaningful addition to the current literature context in this filed.

During this weekend, i was going through the work in the filed of Training & Development and its effectiveness in Google scholar. While most of the work in this field has been on topics like evaluating the effectiveness of the Training through Kirkpatrick Model wherein a detailed analysis has been done at each of the 4 stages like : Reaction, Leaning, Behavior and Results. Others has been focused on studies like impact of individual and situational factors or attributes as defined in Organizational theory to study the effectiveness of trainings. The latter one dig deeper into analyzing the individual behavior and attribute and organizational environment that could impact in achieving the desired state of effectiveness.
Hence, i have thought of including this as one part of my study as this would eventually help me in directing towards my area of study like motivation and retention.
Also, if inclusion of People CMM as an addendum to this study would make it even more relevant to the current context.
Since this would broaden and enhance the scope of my study resulting in deeper insight of the topics covered.
Thanks & Regards

Bill Hefley has given you excellent specific advice to the field, given the meager information by you. I am not a specialist in HR and, hence, I can give you only general advice. Please access and study the ppt presentation on Research Methodology at https://www.citehr.com/150459-resear...cognition.html Also, kindly search CiteHr where there is some material on how to pursue PhD, etc.
