Abstract: The objective of this paper is to report the development of Teamwork Training Impact Scale (TTIS) because there are limited instruments that can measure the impact of training on teamwork effectiveness. Therefore, eight steps to develop instrument as suggested by previous scholar were followed; in which, the instrument reliability, face validity, content validity, and exploratory factor analysis were analysed. The first version of TTIS comprises of 60 items; however, only 24 items left in the final version. Meanwhile, a pilot study was done among the Malaysian Civil Servant Officers; findings indicated a significant different of training impact on teamwork effectiveness as measured before and after training. This demonstrated that TTIS can be used to measure the impact of training on teamwork effectiveness for employee training.
