Abstract

This study investigated the relationship between manpower training and simultaneity of universities in Rivers State. Participants for the study comprised 179 senior staff of three tertiary institutions – University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State University and Ignatius Ajuru University of Education. The research design for the study was the cross-sectional survey and the methodology was the triangulation methodology. The Spearman’s rank order correlation coefficient was used in the test for the bivariate hypotheses of the study while the partial correlation was used in the test for the multivariate hypotheses. Results revealed that manpower training significantly impact on all three measures of goal simultaneity. Hence, all bivariate hypothetical statements were rejected. The study therefore concluded that manpower training can help organizations to effectively build up their human resource competencies and thus strengthen the capacity for institutions to pursue goals simultaneously. It was therefore recommended that the human resources development of universities should begin with identifying the actual challenges and experience of each context and the required skills, functions and behaviour required for effectively addressing these challenges.
