Employees' training function has its specific problems that are affecting its outcome. There is another ‘problem’ that has been affecting it too - the problem of “grandiosity”. It is overblown reality and projection; having its causes and effects in the domain of this research. This imperceptible problem has been exposed by remaining close to the data obtained through 15 in-depth interviews - the co-construction of reality, in the research undertaking. This piece of work has allied the construct -"grandiosity" in context of employees training function as well as with other operations of a public sector university. The study further recounted causes(08) and effects(04) of the practice of grandiosity in context of a public sector institution. The researchers’ contribution is exploring the employees' training function in the public sector universities. The research also adds to the existing literature on the theme – the practice of grandiosity. The recommendations in the research area are beneficial and result-oriented for public sector organisations and in particular for universities.
