dc.description.abstractSexual harassment training is one of the best tools to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. What managers learn during sexual harassment training as well as what employees take away is a sign of how well the training was conducted. The purpose of this applied research project is threefold. First, it explores Dr. Bengt-Ake Lundvall's principles of the taxonomy of knowledge in relation to sexual harassment management training at Capital Metro Transit Authority. Second, this research study assesses Capital Metro's sexual harassment management training using the Lundvall taxonomy principles. Third, it uses the results of the assessment to make recommendations to improve Capital Metro's sexual harassment management training. Lundvall's knowledge principles are used to construct the conceptual framework. The framework is used to explore sexual harassment management training at Capital Metro. A case study consisting of document analysis and structured interviews is utilized to perform this assessment. Given the documents analyzed and structured interviews conducted, it seems as if the formal structure to support Lundvall's taxonomy in relation to sexual harassment training for managers is in place at Capital Metro. However, of the four knowledge principles, know who is the least supported. This knowledge principle should be addressed in order to further develop Lundvall's taxonomy of knowledge principles at Capital Metro Transit Authority.en_US
