Abstract—The objective of this research is to develop a blended training model by applying the knowledge management and action learning principles, to further develop the training program design competencies of personnel development staff in government sectors. The research method was divided into three phases. The first phase was to study the research papers, and literature under the context of blended training, knowledge management, action learning and competency in training design. The second phase was to explore the situation problems and needs of personnel development staff in regards to the design of training programs. The third phase was to design the blended training programs by using the knowledge management principles and action learning to improve the training program design competency. The research findings show the challenges caused by inadequate knowledge in blended training, knowledge management, action learning as well as insufficient time allocated by the management team and personnel development staff towards the subject. Even though development practitioners today use various technologies in learning and managing knowledge at a high level, there still remains a need for the creation of a community of practice, and the appraisal and recognition of successful practitioners, together with a knowledge map that is easy to search and utilize. Those can be applied in training model development.

Index Terms—Action learning, blended training, knowledge management, training program design competencies.
