That training programmes are supposed to enhance employees’ performance is an obvious fact in human resource management literature. Empirical observations however have revealed that the implementation of training programmes, especially within the context of most public sector organizations, often leave much to be desired. To this end, this paper focuses on the implementation of training programmes in public sector organizations and how they affect employees’ performance. Data for this research paper was obtained through secondary sources based on content analysis. The paper was anchored on Victor Vroom’s Expectancy theory as a framework for our discussion. The argument of this paper is that the gap between the ideal situation and what is obtainable in practice, with respect to staff training is created at the stage of implementation. In view of this finding, the paper, therefore, recommends, among others, that training programs in public sector organizations should be implemented in such a way as to achieve SMART objectives in terms of the goals being Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-bound.
