Abstract: Multinational companies and professional training institutes face several challenges when they deploy new policies, novel ideas and new courses to their audience in global environments. To constitute such training, local expertise is not always available. Moreover, the travel of the instructors/trainer increases cost and time distracting experts from their primary focus of research. An emerging solution to this problem is the utilization of computer mediated synchronized distance technology to impart the necessary training at minimum resources and maximum effectiveness. However, there is a need to carefully manage these training programs, in order that the instructors and the trainees avail of the benefits of distance learning avoiding the innate ambiguity that such a training method might harbor. Different organizations have deployed various types of tools and technologies to conduct efficient distance training. It is the prerogative of the management to select the proper technology to empower the instructor and to structure the course materials depending on the type of course, background of the trainees and consider the other factors in order to reap the benefits, which such training has to provide. This study presents an analysis of the use of Computer Mediated Communications (CMC) in synchronized distance training for global organizations. We also present how CMC can be used in the stated field effectively with some important recommendations to enhance the performance of the uses of CMC in this case.
