The purpose of the study was to investigate the extent to which training strategies influence organizational performance in Watoto Childcare Ministries. The following specific objectives guided the study namely: To investigate the influence of formal training as a training strategy on organizational performance in Watoto ChildCare Ministries. To investigate the extent to which informal training as training strategy influences organizational performance. The study used a cross section survey and utilized both qualitative and quantitative methods to achieve its intended objectives. The sample included 132 respondents from the different Watoto branches. The study established that training strategies influences organisational performance in Watoto Child Care Ministries. In the findings there was a positive weak relationship between formal training strategies and organisational performance whereby improvement in formal training related to improvement in organisational performance and vice versa. Formal training accounted for 5.1% variance on organizational performance while Informal training strategies accounted for 74.1% variance. Findings generally revealed that formal training for most WCCM employees had a small significance on performance while informal training strategies had a strong influence on performance. It was therefore concluded after these study findings that actually lack of training strategies influences organisational performance. With such revelation and identified knowledge there is need for WCCM to pay heed to formal and informal training strategies in order to improve their organization’s performance. This will enable management to professionally develop their employee’s skills for a better future. Finally basing on the findings of the study WCCM should focus on implementing both formal and informal training strategies to improve organisational performance.
