But the most important from all is skilled human resource capital that places a dynamic role in organizational performance. It is human resource capital that plays an important role in the implementation of all the dimensions which are needed. Not any organization can become effective and efficient until individuals have and apply required skills and knowledge. For these required skills and competencies we need to train them according to the original needs. Training is one of the most important strategies for organizations to help employees gain proper knowledge and skills needed to meet the environmental challenges (Goldstein and Gilliam, 1990; Rosow and Zager, 1988).
