dc.description.abstract To become a world class performer and ensure continuous economic growth, an organisation has to have in its employ, a workforce that is educated, highly skilled, and motivated. However, low productivity and morale will be characteristic of organisations that do not implement equity principles as well as practicing discrimination. Affirmative Action (AA) was introduced as a measure for organisations to practice and apply equity principles, as well as, to avail management opportunities to previously disadvantaged groups (i.e. Blacks, including Africans, Asians and so-called coloureds, as well as the disabled and women of all races). However, there is still a major under-representation of black South Africans in the corporate sector, especially at senior levels. This is largely due to lack of commitment in companies by employers. In situations where AA has been implemented, there is dissatisfaction from both management and the rest of the staff, as well as Affirmative Action Appointees (AAA) management on poor performance by the AAA, and the AAA on lack of management support. The poor performance by the AAA however, is attributable to the paucity of skills within the black community which are a r result of the lack of educational opportunities, lack of experience at managerial level, both which are a consequence of apartheid. The purpose of this study is to therefore find out what the training needs of AAA are, and to find training interventions which can be used to enhance their skills so as to perform their jobs adequately. en
