It is evident from the above discussion, the laws of interactions between different units of theory and its impact on the nature and extent of enterprise training. For practitioners, the model is a step towards understanding the complex interactions that take place in the context of India’s IT sector, and for researcher-theorists, it serves as the basis for engaging in the next step of theory testing. Also, as noted above, triangulation of methodology should further strengthen the rigour and relevance of the model. It is also likely that the above model and its units will change in meaning and direction as the industry goes through its development stages. To this end, researchers will need to modify and enhance the relevance of the model. Once the eight steps of Dubin’s (1978) two-staged model are completed, IT practitioners will have a better understanding of the units that influence provision of training and the nature and extent of training that is undertaken in different sub-sectors that make up the IT sector of India. This study will also reveal the extent to which organisations are relying of internal versus external training provision, and as a result, this will have some policy implications for addressing any gaps in the training and education sector of India.
